If you're pressed for time, two beautiful days in Lake Manyara National Park and the world-famous Ngorongoro Conservation Area should do the trick! Between Manyara's tree climbing lions, astonishing variety of birds, and wallowing hippos, and Ngorongoro's high population of predators as well as cape buffalo and black rhinoceros - this itinerary offers you the chance to see the entire Big Five in just 48 hours.
In the early morning, we will collect you from your hotel in Arusha and drive you to Lake Manyara National Park. The park encompasses the northwest bank and part of the alkaline Lake Manyara which itself rests in the Great Rift Valley. The park is perhaps best known for its flamingos, pelicans and cormorants but it is also the home for a few hundred other species of birds; it is therefore a paradise for ornithologists. Next to a great variety of birds, the “Big Game” can also be seen. With a bit of lucky you might see elephants in the wooded regions and with even more fortune the tree-climbing lions. Indeed, it was thought for a long time that the Lake Manyara National Park is the only place where lions can be found with this atypical behaviour of climbing trees. Baboons and vervet monkeys are also found amongst the forested areas and in the more open spaces, giraffes nibble at the fresh leaves while the various types of antelopes common to the region browse for tasty shootsIn the late afternoon, you will leave the Lake Manyara National Park and head to Manyara/ Karatu in the Ngorongoro Highlands for dinner and overnight. Overnight at a Budget Tinted Lodge at Manyara/Karatu. (For Lodge accommodation Send a special Request)
