Tarangire & Ngorongoro Safari

Description

No trip to Africa is complete without experiencing at least one safari . . . and they don't come much better than this. Your four day adventure in East Africa's Tarangire and Ngorongoro begins in Arusha, a city in Tanzania, located at the base of volcanic Mt. Meru. It's a gateway to safari destinations and to Africa's highest peak, Mt. Kilimanjaro, lying some 80 miles northeast. To the west lies the Serengeti National Park, home to wildlife including lions, rhinoceros, giraffes and leopards. Annual migrations feature huge herds of wildebeests crossing its plains.

Day 1
Arusha to Tarangire

You leave Arusha early in the afternoon for the drive to Tarangire National Park. From the park’s gate, you continue the journey to the lodge viewing lots of game along the way. Deriving its name from the Tarangire River which winds its way through the park, Tarangire is a complex mixture of grasslands, flood plains and scenic river, and is home to thousands of baobab trees. You arrive at Lake Burenge Tented Camp in time for a memorable dinner under the stars.

Day 2
Tarangire to Ngorongoro

Rise early this morning for a game drive in Tarangire National Park. This is a good time to see lots of animals which are active before the heat of the day sets in. Return to the camp for lunch then leave Tarangire and travel to Karatu arriving late afternoon at either the Ngorongoro Farm House or Tloma Lodge, where you stay tonight. Relax after the journey then get ready to take part in a choice of game drives and evening activities before returning after sunset for another dinner under the stars.

Day 3
Ngorongoro to Arusha

A highlight awaits this morning as you leave your lodge with a picnic lunch to explore what is known as the world’s largest wildlife zoo. After breakfast, you descend through the mists 2,000 feet into the Ngorongoro Crater, the largest intact volcanic caldera on the planet. Due to its size and diversity, the crater floor is made up of distinct areas ranging from forest, swamps, lakes and springs, to open grassland and sandy dunes and makes for an awesome wildlife experience. Leave in the late afternoon and return to Arusha for dinner and overnight.

Day 4
Depart Arusha

Your short but action packed safari trip comes to an end today and you are in a great spot to do some more exploring. Either stay on in Arusha or take one of a number of trips out into the surrounding areas for more wildlife viewing with every chance of seeing some or all of the Big Five - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino. Alternatively you can head to the airport and fly to another region of Africa or begin your journey back home taking with you lots of great memories.

All organised so well. Very impressed with DialAflight and our travel manager Rico made the booking process very easy and simple.

Flew to Hurghada

Both flights were good. Virgin Atlantic planes were virtually new 787-9, so seats comfortable, TV screens a good size and I think we had more leg room. Altogether VERY satisfactory.

Superb as always! Robin was exceptional in helping us plan and arrange the holiday. We have used DialAFlight several times for holidays to the Indian Ocean, USA and the latest Safari and Beach Holiday.

Flew to Johannesburg

I would have liked more detail about the Elephant House accommodation (Stable Cottage). I appreciate that the style goes with the area and access to Addo National Park but if given the choice I would have opted for an upgrade. However, overall this was a very memorable trip and the Safari at Pumba Lodge far surpassed our expectations.

Flew to Nairobi

Fantastic customer service. Easy to book, great prices and useful app. Hire car company (Europcar, SA) have added a fuel and fuel surcharge payment to our bill, despite the fact that we filled the car up on the way to the airport. They have done the same thing to my mother previously. Sounds like a regular scam. Please can you address this issue with them.
