Highlights of Tanzania—4 days

This safari can be dubbed as a classic express safari because it takes you around 4 of Tanzania’s best spots in just 4 days. You will visit Lake Manyara National Park – Game drive, check out the African Rift Valley, enjoy the famous Serengeti National Park Game drive and also experience the Ngorongoro Crater.


Day 1: Arusha – Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park is a small park that stretches along the 600 m high Rift Valley Escarpment and is dominated by the alkaline Lake Manyara. It is here where thousands of flamingos gather to feed and lounge. In addition to the signature flamingos, many water birds gather at the lake and more than 400 bird species are found in the park. The diverse vegetation also provides a habitat for many animals such as monkeys in the forest, giraffes and antelopes on the grasslands and elephants around the acacia trees.

Dinner and overnight at the accommodation of your choice.

Day 2: Lake Transfer to Serengeti National Park

After breakfast you will head out towards Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti is the largest park in Tanzania and has a diversity of habitats and landscapes including short grass plains, savannah, thick bush, swamps, mountains and lakes. If you happen to travel between June and September, you are bound to witness the migration of wildebeest which have become the signature of Serengeti.

Dinner and overnight at the accommodation of your choice.

Day 3 Serengeti National Park game viewing experience

You will be up early on Day 3 for a game drive to catch some early risers and the animals still lounging around after a night of activities. You will then return to the lodge for a late breakfast. After breakfast, you will return to the tracks for a longer game drive.

You will then enjoy a picnic lunch before continuing to the Ngorongoro Crater.

Dinner and overnight at the accommodation of your choice.

Day 4 Ngorongoro Crater – Arusha

After an early breakfast on the fourth day, you will drive down into the crater. The slopes are forested but soon the landscape changes to savannah. Here the wildlife is just breath-taking and on a good day you can spot the Big Five – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard almost instantly. You should also be able to see warthogs, wildebeests, zebras, hippos and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After a morning dedicated to game viewing and a picnic lunch, you will leave the crater in the early afternoon to drive back to Arusha, where you will arrive in the early evening with a possible drop-off to the airport for your flight or an alternative check-in at a hotel of your choice for dinner and overnight.
