Best time to travel: July - October
This 3-day camping safari offers you the chance to watch a wide variety of wildlife amongst some of the most varied landscapes. Not only will you see parts of the Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks but also the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater.

Day 1 Arusha - Tarangire National Park
In the morning, you will be collected from your hotel and will be taken to Tarangire National Park. The Tangire National Park with its endless tree savannah and seasonal marshes is home to the largest elephant herds in the North of Tanzania; with over 4000 at the last count, it takes some beating. In the national park, you will also be able to watch giraffes, buffalos, lions, zebras, gnus and different types of antelopes and gazelles.

Upon your arrival at the park, your driver will open the roof of the vehicle and the extensive wildlife watch can begin. After having lunch at a picnic spot, you will have more time in the afternoon to see more of this amazing and beautiful park. Late in the afternoon, you will leave Tarangire National Park and you will stay for the night in tents at a nearby campsite. Lunch; Dinner

Day 2 Tarangire National Park - Ngorongoro Conservation Area
After an early start, you will drive pass the Rift Valley (Africa's graben fault) up to the cooler regions of the crater uplands. The Ngorongoro Crater is almost 600m deep and in this massive caldera, you will find an amazing variety of animals. Alongside the "big five" (elephants, buffaloes, lions, leopards and rhinoceros), you will find virtually all of the animals that can be found in the entire East African savannah.

At a chosen picnic spot, you will have lunch and the rest of the afternoon will be devoted to more wildlife watching. In the afternoon, you will leave the crater and you will drive to the campsite, which is situated directly on the craters edge and offers fantastic evening views across the crater. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 3 Ngorongoro Conservation Area - Lake Manyara National Park - Arusha
Early birds can enjoy watching the sunrise over the Ngorongoro Crater - something that should not be missed and is well worth getting up for. After breakfast, you will leave the crater highlands and continue the "Northern Circuits" tour to the next national park in Tanzania. Lake Manyara National Park is one of the smaller parks in Tanzania and covers an area from the northwestern edge of the lake and a large proportion of the lake itself.

The lake is the seasonal home to thousands of flamingos, pelicans and more than one hundred other types of birds. On the partly forested edges, you will get the chance to watch the proud elephants with their impressive tusks searching for food and doing their daily business. You will also be able to see giraffes, buffaloes, gazelles, antelopes, baboons, and last but not least, the famous tree climbing lions. After an intensive wildlife tour, it will be time to leave the national park and return to Arusha. Breakfast; Lunch
