Moshi - Tarangire National Park
You will be picked up at the hotel by the safari driver-guide, then start the drive to Tarangire National Park. Tarangire has immense concentrations of game in the peak months and a fraction of the visitors that go to any of the other northern parks. The game viewing here from July through to October is superb and the atmosphere and habitat are completely different from the other parks. The real prizes in the park are dwarf mongoose, oryx, and gerenuk, but viewings are very rare. Tarangire is one of Tanzania’s finest birding destinations. After an extensive game drive, you will leave the park and drive to Marera Valley Lodge for dinner and overnight.
Accommodation: Marera Valley Lodge
After breakfast, you will depart for Ngorongoro Crater, one of the most beautiful natural wildlife safari sites in the world and an exceptional place to interact with people from the Maasai tribe. The Ngorongoro Crater and surrounding highlands together form one of Africa’s most beautiful regions. Volcanic craters form stunning backdrops to some of the most fertile and richest grazing grounds in Africa. The most famous such crater is, without question, the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and home to the highest density of big game in Africa, including the Big Five and plenty of predators. Ngorongoro is the best place in Tanzania to see the Big Five.
You will enjoy a picnic lunch in the crater and continue the game drive after the break. Later in the afternoon, you will travel up to the steep walls of the crater and drive to the hotel in Moshi.
