Day 1: Tarangire National Park
Our guide will pick you up from your lodge early in the morning followed by a 2-hour drive to Tarangire National Park after your briefing. The park is famous for its majestic baobab trees, often known as "trees of life," which dot the landscape and add to the beauty of Tarangire's surroundings. The Tarangire River, the park's primary source of water, draws hundreds of species, especially during the dry season.
When you arrive in Tarangire, you will go on a game drive in search of the park's wildlife, which includes lesser kudu, buffalo, oryx, eland, giraffe, and zebra. You might encounter predators like lions, leopards, and cheetahs if you're lucky. After a brief game drive, you will have lunch in one of the park's picnic spots. You will then go on an afternoon game drive to look for more wildlife and other park attractions. In the evening, you will drive to the lodge in Karatu for dinner and an overnight stay.
Day 2: Mto wa Mbu Cultural Experience / Lake Manyara National Park
After a delicious breakfast, your experienced guide will pick you up for cultural exploration in Mto wa Mbu. You will have the opportunity to interact with residents and learn about their everyday lives. You will tour banana and rice plantations, where you will be able to see how locals undertake agricultural activities and sample local beer. Around the afternoon, you will have a local meal at one of Mto wa Mbu's restaurants, giving you the opportunity to sample African local cuisine.

Day 3: Ngorongoro National Park
Today is an excellent day to enjoy the splendor of Africa's nature! After breakfast early in the morning, you will depart for a wildlife drive in the Ngorongoro Crater.

As you approach the crater rim, have your camera ready because you might capture a fantastic photo of wildlife or an incredible landscape vista at any time. The Ngorongoro Crater is a self-sustaining environment that is home to African elephants, buffalo, hippos, lions, and the rare remaining black rhinos.
