3 Days Lake Manyara Ngorongoro Crater Tanzania Safari from the 3 Days 2 Nights Tanzania Safari Holidays Tours offers an excellent way to discover the most popular Parks of northern Tanzania. You will enjoy incredible game viewing in Lake Manyara National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater.

Our 3 Days Lake Manyara Ngorongoro Crater Tanzania Safari begins from Arusha where you take a scenic countryside drive to Lake Manyara National Park.

Lake Manyara National Park in northern Tanzania is located 125 Kilometers (78 miles) West of Arusha town, which is a 2 hour drive.

Lake Manyara National Park is particularly known for its tree-climbing lions, which may be seen sleeping off the heat of the day on a branch instead of a shady spot on the ground like most other lions.

Well known for its birds (over 400 different species), Lake Manyara is one of the few places where you’ll be able to see the Ground Hornbill and the Crested Eagle.

Fish-eating birds inhabiting the lake include pelicans, storks, cormorants and Egyptian geese. Flamingoes co lour the lake pink as they arrive to feed at the lake during their migration.

After a night at Lake Manyara, we proceed by road to the famous Ngorongoro Crater – an extinct volcanic caldera in the Eastern Great Rift Valley, northern Tanzania from Arusha.

Ngorongoro Crater is home to populations of Lion, Leopard and Hyena along with good herds of wildebeest, buffalo and zebra.

Other game in the Ngorongoro includes serval cat, cheetah, jackal, Grant’s and Thompson’s gazelle, flamingo and bat eared foxes along with approximately 400 species of bird.

A trip to Northern Tanzania has to include the Ngorongoro; it is an exceptional place to interact with the Masai and is one of the most beautiful natural wildlife safari sites in the world.

Our Safari begins and ends in Arusha Town or Moshi.
