The Kiboko Safari (Manyara & Ngorongoro)

DAY 1 Arusha – Lake Manyara National Park

After lunch you will be collected by our Driver/Guide at your Hotel in Arusha. Leave Arusha and proceed to Lake Manyara National Park. From the entrance gate, you will drive through an expanse of groundwater forest where hundreds of strong baboon troops lounge casually along the roadside, blue monkeys scamper nimbly between the ancient mahogany trees, dainty bushbuck tread warily through the shadows and outsized forest hornbills hank cacophonously in the high canopy. After the evening game-view, you leave the park and drive to the Lodge or Campsite at Lake Manyara for dinner and overnight stay.

DAY 2 Lake Manyara / Ngorongoro

After breakfast drive over the Great Rift Valley escarpment and descend into Manyara National Park for morning game viewing. Drive through a narrow belt of acacia woodland to the favoured haunt of the Manyara’s legendry tree-climbing lions and tusked elephants. Continue further to visit the hot springs that streams and bubbles adjacent to the lakeshore in the far south of the park. In the afternoon, return to your lodge for lunch. Shortly after lunch depart from the Lodge and proceed to Ngorongoro then drive to your lodges which are superbly perched on the edge of the ancient Crater rim above the cool, swirling mists. Dinner and overnight stay at the Lodge or Campsite.

DAY 3 Ngorongoro Crater Tour – Arusha

Ngorongoro shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife heavens on earth. Therefore, during the morning we collect your packed lunches and descend 610m/2000ft down to the Crater. Here you will see some of Africa’s last black rhino protected within its rim, black–maned lions, flamingos around the soda lakes and giant-tusked elephants wonder the forest. In the afternoon we stop at the site for picnic lunch then continue with your tour. Leave the Crater at about 16:00hrs and drive back to Arusha.Ngorongoro shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife heavens on earth.
