Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater & Serengeti

Our 3-day African safari, which specifically includes the Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Crater & Serengeti National Park, has been designed to offer you a short but intense Tanzanian Northern Circuit safari experience, for a shorter and time constrained period of 3 days / 2 nights. You will experience the excitement of game viewing in three of the most spectacular national game parks in Tanzania.

This unforgettable African safari tour will take you to the Ngorongoro Crater, featuring one of the highest concentrations of game in Africa. Here you will witness an amazing spectacle of African wildlife - inside a self-contained world teeming with animals. Your tour will also take you to the Lake Manyara National Park, one of Tanzania's most dramatically located wildlife areas, consisting of a shallow but huge soda lake, at the foot of the Great Rift Valley's western escarpment. Finally, your African safari tour will also take you to the Serengeti National Park, which features some of the greatest concentration of wildlife migration in Tanzania . The size of the selected Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Serengeti National Parks, make them a perfect choice for our shorter safaris.

This is a suggested or sample Tanzanian safari itinerary - it can be adapted to suite your own personal needs and preferences, as well as to any seasonal changes or to migratory animal movements. As with all our safaris, tours and trekking packages, we have offered you a wide variety of accommodation options - directly impacting on the total safari costs - in order to offer you the widest possible tour budget options. Please do not hesitate to contact one of our tours consultants directly, should you require any further assistance or more detailed information, regarding any of our African safaris or packages.


Day 1 - Arusha - Lake Manyara

Non game-viewing travel time: 2 ½ hours
Distance: 130 km

Meet our professional tours guide/driver in Arusha town, who will deliver a short safari info briefing, after which, we travel to the Lake Manyara National Park. We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge. After lunch we head into the Lake Manyara National Park. This impressive park is one of Tanzania's most dramatically located wildlife areas, consisting of a massive but shallow soda lake (covering two-thirds of the park) at the foot of the Great Rift Valley's western escarpment. The park's varied habitat attracts a wide variety of animals, including one of Africa's largest concentrations of elephants, Manyara's famous tree-climbing lions, as well as large flocks of flamingos attracted by the algae in the lake.

Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.


Day 2- Ngorongoro Crater to Serengeti

Non game-viewing travel time: 2 hours & 3 ½ hours
Distance: 60km & 155 km

After breakfast we descend 600m into this magnificent crater for a morning, half-day game drive. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most densely crowded African wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals including some of Tanzania's last remaining black rhino. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro Crater supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will enjoy a picnic lunch in the crater, after which we travel to the Serengeti National Park. Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 3-Serengeti National park, Ngorongoro to Arusha

These are your one days for game viewing in the park (14,763 sq km or 5,700 sq miles) with morning and afternoon game-drives as well as with picnic lunch.

On this day, you may wish to take a picnic lunch and go for the whole day en route according to game locations to see the migration of wildebeest, zebras, as well as gazelles, great herds of buffalos, elephants, giraffes, and lots of birds, all three African jackal species found here and the spectacle of predators.

(Game viewing is best in the early morning and late afternoon when animals are active).
