Manyara - Ngorongoro Safari

This 3 night Safari is a great introduction to Tanzania, highlighting some of Tanzania’s most famous parks and landscapes. It’s a perfect extension to one of our Kenyan safaris.

You will be picked up in Arusha, taken for lunch and then onwards to Lake Manyara National Park famous for its tree-climbing lions. Over night at Kirurumu Tented Lodge, set high on the edge of the Great Rift Valley, enjoying a marvellous and panoramic view eastward over Lake Manyara, the Rift floor and Mt. Losimingori. Behind Kirurumu, the Ngorongoro Highlands rise in green and fertile splendour and form the gateway to Ngorongoro Crater.

Onwards for 2 nights at the Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge. Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge is perched at the edge of the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, a short drive from the Crater descent road and adjacent to Serengeti National Park. The lodge is 180 kilometres and a four-hour drive from Arusha. A day’s safari through this unique conservation area provides you with spectacular and memorable game viewing experiences.

Located part-way between Nairobi and Namanga start or end your Tanzania safari with a few nights at our exclusive Porini Camp.
