You will be picked up from your hotel /Airport in Arusha at 0800 hrs and drive to Tarangire National Park with picnic lunch box. The park is famous for its giant baobab trees, bush savannah and the seasonal marshes add to the wonder of this nature reserve.

The Tarangire National Park is also considered as one of the best places to view elephants up close, not only because there are thousands of animals but also because they are not disturbed by the presence of vehicles. The park is also home to buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are seen now and then but cheetahs are rarely spotted. From the open roof of the safari vehicle, you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the wild animals.

Meals: Lunch & Dinner

After breakfast, we will drive to Ngorongoro Crater.
Upon arrival at the park, you'll sign in and then begin the winding descent into the caldera. The mist shrouded rainforests of the mountain are home to cape buffalo and baboon troupes, and the particularly lucky might even spot a grazing elephant or a shy leopard moving through the dense green undergrowth.
You'll stop at the Ngorongoro viewing area for a stunning view of the caldera's sheer scale. The shadows of clouds dapple the caldera floor, and the keen-eyed might spot the great herds of wildebeest and zebra moving about below. The sun glitters off the soda lakes and it all combines to make for a truly beautiful landscape.
From here you'll continue our descent into the caldera, where over 120 species of mammals go about their lives. The park is the best place in the northern circuit to see the black rhinoceros and the cape buffalo, but is home to the entirety of the Big Five. We'll also see large packs of hyenas as well as lesser-known predators such as jackals and serval cats.
You'll pay a visit to Lake Magadi, a vast Salt Lake which is a magnet for flamingos and a number of other water birds such as pelicans and storks. A picnic lunch by the famous hippo pool is also a surreal experience, as you'll take your lunch a few feet from where great hippopotamus wallow lazily in the cool water. After picnic lunch in the crater, ascend from the crater for Maasai Boma tour.
visiting the nearby Maasai people to see how they live and their colourful culture, which seems unbelievable.

The young men show their traditional dances to which you can try dancing with them. You will Love talking to teenagers and learning about their culture. The guides give a tour of the village's newborn goats. They demonstrate the culture of the Maasai and how they start a fire. You will visit one of the village houses, and then you will have the opportunity to view and purchase the crafts the women of the village made. They price the items altogether, and the more you buy, the better deal you will get. They expect you to bargain, so don't feel bad about it. It is the African way.

In the morning after breakfast, leave from the hotel with a lunch box to Lake Manyara National Park for a morning game drive. 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.
