This three-day safari is designed for those with small number of days in Arusha but who still want to see the wildlife and experience the local culture.

This safari will take you to Tarangire National Park and then Ngorongoro Crater where you will have assured opportunity of seeing some of the most famous wild animals of Tanzania, in particular, the big five, i.e., leopard, elephant, lion, buffalo and rhino.

You will also get a chance to meet and interact with the Maasai people in their traditional boma/ house. You can dance, take photos and be invited into their homes. There is also an opportunity to buy traditional artifacts and souvenirs at a discounted price, compared with buying them in town.
Day 1 ARRIVE IN ARUSHA 1 hours Eco lodge

Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), our representative will welcome with a cold drink and pick you up with a private 4WD safari vehicle and transfer to Arusha (approximately 50km or 31miles) a 45 to 50 minutes drive on a tarmac road for overnight at Planet Lodge or similar (Dinner included). Our representative will have a short safari briefing session with you at the lodge and leave you to relax and have dinner. This will be a truly life-enriching safari experience that will be lifetime memorable. Karibu Tanzania!

Day 2 ARUSHA TO TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK 8 hours Eco lodge

Pick up from the Arusha at 0800am and drive to the Tarangire National Park. This is the third largest park in Tanzania and it is characterized by the amazingly large herds of elephants that can be encountered in this park. The Baobab trees are one of the other highlights of Tarangire and the Tarangire River that flows all year round is the life blood of the park. Many animals; predators and the preys alike gather around the river where you can do excellent game viewing. You will be accommodated at Twiga Camp & Lodge in Mto wa Mbu. Recently, a rare white (albino) giraffe has been discovered. No any other place in the world has this rare creature. You may be luck to spot this giraffe named Omo roaming around.

Before you to your lodge at Mto wa Mbu, you will pass by the Maasai to interact and experience their way of life. Expect to dance! In the evening you will eat traditional dinner prepared by traditional women at Mto wa Mbu.

Meals Plan: {Lunch, Dinner}

Day 3 EXPLORE NGORONGORO CRATER AND RETURN TO ARUSHA 8 hours

Wake up early morning for breakfast then at 07.30 hours drive to Ngorongoro Crater where you will descend into the Crater floor (19.2 km of diameter, 610m deep, 304 sq. km) for game drives.

Ngorongoro Crater- The largest unbroken caldera in the world, Ngorongoro has an area of 260 kilometers and a depth of 610 meters. The crater provides a protected habitat for thousands of mammals and birds. The entire day is spent on the crater floor viewing lion, hyena, wildebeest, zebra, black rhinoceros, and many species of small antelopes.

The Crater is a spectacular setting in which to experience your African safari. Some scientists maintain that before it erupted, Ngorongoro Crater- the largest intact caldera in the world would have been higher than Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest point in Africa.

Covering a mere 260 square kilometers (100 square miles), the 600 meter (1969 foot) deep Crater is home to a permanent population of more than 30,000 animals. It is one of the few places in Africa where you stand a very good chance of seeing the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant) in the course of a game- drive.

The local Maasai have permission to graze their cattle on the Crater floor, and it is not unusual to see Maasai cattle and buffalo grazing together with lion mere meters away. There are around 1000 lions in the Crater, approximately 20 black rhino, and the spectacular Lerai Forest is one of the best places in Africa to spot the leopard.

At around 1600 pm, open the champagne to mark the end of the safari and start ascending the Crater and return to Arusha to board your flight back home or onwards.
