Day 2: Manyara – Tarangire

After breakfast descend the walls of the Great Rift Valley to Lake Manyara National park for morning game drive. This pretty little park, tucked into the base of the Rift Valley escarpment, is often used simply as a gentle introduction for safaris heading North, but Manyara can become a real live safari experience if you stop to overnight here. This is the classic area for safari, with spectacular volcanic scenery, the rift valley escarpment, immense featureless plains and the great migration.

Day 3: Tarangire

Today we depart for a full day game drive in this magnificent national park. We return to the lodge for lunch and spend the hot hours of the afternoon in our lodge either taking a swim or just a siesta before we embark on an afternoon game drive. Tarangire National Park covers approximately 2600 square kilometers and, in the dry season, is second only to Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area in concentrations of wildlife. Tarangire lies to the south of the large, open grass plains of southern Maasai land, and derives its name from the Tarangire River, which provides permanent water for wildlife in the area. The park is spectacular in the dry season when many of the migratory wildlife species come back to the permanent waters of Tarangire River. Huge herds of wildebeest, zebras, elephants, eland and oryx gather to stay in Tarangire until the onset of the rains when they migrate. Dinner and overnight at Tarangire Sopa / Safari Lodge

Day 4: Tarangire – Arusha – Nairobi
