Manyara, Serengeti & Ngorongoro

Description

On this superb five day safari tour you will see all the wildlife highlights of Tanzania, staying in its three most spectacular game parks. You first visit the fascinating and beautiful Lake Manyara area in the Great Rift Valley where the variety of wildlife is matched only by the stunning scenery. Then it is on to the Serengeti to see the vast herds of migrating animals before visiting Ngorogoro where the wildlife and birds in the world's largest crater have to be seen to be believed. This short safari trip makes a great add on to any holiday in Africa and is a great introduction to the continent's natural beauty.

Day 1
Lake Manyara

Your tour begins in Arusha where, after lunch, you begin the drive to Lake Manyara seeing lots of animals on the way. After settling in to the Lake Manyara Serena Lodge you will be taken on an evening safari seeing the hippos, monkeys, tree climbing lions and a huge variety of birds. Dinner back at the lodge

Day 2
Serengeti

After an early breakfast you drive to the open plains of the Serengeti National Park. Lunch at the Serena Lodge there, then spend the afternoon game viewing in the endless plains with the probability of seeing great herds of wildebeest, zebras, gazelles and a pride of lions lounging in the shade. Return to the lodge for dinner.

Day 3
Ngorogoro

Enjoy a dawn safari before breakfast then depart for the spectacular Ngorogoro Conservation area where you will stay at another Serena Lodge. In the afternoon drop 2,000 feet to the bottom of the crater for a tour exploring the forest area where you will see monkeys and elephants, the lake where the pink flamingos live, and hope to get a sight of some of the rare black rhinos.

Day 4
Tarangire

Today you leave Ngorogoro and head for Tarangire National Park which is on the migration route of many species of animals. Buffalo gather along the marshy shores of Lake Nation and the pools are shared by rare white bellied go-away birds and giant kingfishers. Resident lions, giraffes, elephants and black rhino can be seen at any time of the year. Dinner and overnight at Tarangire Lodge.

Day 5
Departure

Today your short but memorable Tanzania safari tour comes to an end, but not before you enjoy another early morning game drive in Tarangire National Park. After breakfast drive back to Arusha and prepare to continue your African adventure or begin your journey home.

Portswood Hotel in Cape Town - avoid rooms on Mezzanine Floor especially Room 203 as you can hear canned music in lobby. Complained and problem solved. Otherwise hotel good value

For connecting KLM flights hold luggage does not need to be collected between flights. Our stopover hotel was further from the airport than expected, would have preferred a hotel closer to the terminal.

Only minor hiccup was that I didn't get diabetic meals as requested, but that is a taste preference not a medical need, so no real issue.

I was provided with such a good service by Lucy last year when travelling to Brazil and her colleague Harley again gave me a great service when buying flights to Tanzania. I didn't even bother to shop around. The fact that I wasn't met by an automated service is worth a lot to me.
