Pick up from your hotel in Arusha at 8:30 am and drive to Tarangire National Park for a game drive with the opportunity to see large groups of elephants that make this national park famous. Tarangire is home to many large iconic Baobab trees, giving you some picture perfect African landscapes. Following an afternoon of wildlife watching you will drive to the town of Mto Wa Mbu where you will overnight at Lodge. Here you will be staying in a permanent tent, with a comfortable bed inside.
Rise early at 6am for breakfast then head to Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. Descend into this infamous crater to view some of Tanzania’s more rarely seen wildlife including the black rhino. You will have a full-day game drive on the open grassy plains of the crater, stopping for a picnic lunch at Ngoitoktok hippo pools before returning to Arusha (arrive 5pm/6pm).
