Aditional information

FIRST DAY – Arusha- Tarangire National Park or Lake Manyara National Park.

You can choose between visiting the Tarangire National Park or the Lake Manyara National Park. Different safaris will be offered depending on the time of the year. Your guide will help you choose the best option.


You will leave Arusha after breakfast for a trip of approximately two hours to the Tarangire National Park. On the way you will pass through the bustling Maasai villages and the wide and open plains that have become examples of African images.

Once you have entered Tarangire, you will begin a journey through a rich view of the endless golden savanna that surrounds the Tarangire River. The river itself flows throughout the year and is a vital source of water for the animals of the region during the dry season. The river, lined with acacias and baobabs, is visited regularly by the large elephant population of the park, as well as by other herbivores such as zebras and antelopes.

A picnic overlooking the river is a good way to assimilate everything, but you’ll have to stay alert as the local population of monkeys goes out of their way to separate you from your lunch.

Driving through the park you will also have the opportunity to see lions, leopards, buffalo and a large variety of antelopes. If you are very lucky, you may see animals in danger of extinction such as the Great Kudu or the striped-eared Oryx.

After the end of the day of travel, you will return to your accommodation at night.


You will leave Arusha after breakfast for a trip of approximately two hours to the National Park of Lake Manyara. You will pass through the Mto Wa Mbu, a market town, whose fresh agricultural produce is a melting pot of local cultures, and a paradise of souvenirs for travelers.

After a brief stop in this market, you will arrive at the National Park of Lake Manyara. The park is really a playground for photographers. You can see many of Africa’s best-known animals, with climbing lions, a special treat. These proud predators rest on the acacia trees, practically begging to be photographed.

Birdwatchers will find that Lake Manyara is an absolute delight, with a great variety of birds on display in the park. Even the beginner will be surprised by the large flocks of flamingos, birds of prey in a circle and flocks of colorful birds above your head.

Finally you will return to your accommodation for dinner and rest until the next day.
