Two Day Safari

Arusha - Tarangire - Lake Manyara - Arusha

Our 2-day Lake Manyara & Tarangire National Park safari packages were designed to offer visitors, with a time constraint, a short but a very intense Tanzanian Northern Circuit wildlife safari experience. You will experience the excitement of an African wildlife safari in two of the most spectacular national game parks in Tanzania.

2 Day Safari Overview

Day 1

Arusha - Tarangire National Park

Non game-viewing travel time: 2 hours
Distance: 120 km

After breakfast, our professional tour guide/driver will meet you at your lodge in Arusha. Following  a short safari info briefing, we will head into the Tarangire National Park for a morning game drive. The park runs along the line of the Tarangire River and is mainly made up of low-lying hills on the Great Rift Valley floor. Its natural vegetation mainly consists of Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with huge swamp areas in the south. Both the river and the swamps act like a magnet for wild animals, during Tanzania’s dry season. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa. Our guide will find a nice spot for you to have your packed lunch and then you will carry on for an afternnon drive through the park. In the late afternoon you will head out of the park for your overnight stay at Maramboi Tented Lodge.


Day 2

Tarangire - Lake Manyara - Arusha

Non game-viewing travel time: 2 & 4 hours
Distance: 60km & 190 km

Today we make our way to the Lake Manyara National Park.  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. Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.
