Safari: Basic 3 Day
Our 3-day safari package is for travelers wanting to experience the thrill of a safari but having a limited number of days in which to do so. You get the maximum return on your time, with minimum time spent traveling from one place to another.
What We Experience
- The tree-dwelling lions of Tarangire
- Ngorongoro rim and the drive into the crater
- An opportunity to see all of the African “Big Five” (Cape Buffalo, Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Rhinoceros)
- Demonstrations by local craftsmen (ebony wood carving, painting, etc.) (optional)
- Visits to local schools and/or orphanages (optional)
Day 0: Arusha (applicable if we are arranging airport transfer and/or hotel stay)
We pick you up from the airport and drop you off at your hotel in Arusha. Optional sightseeing tour of the city and markets available if time permits.
Day 1: Arusha – Tarangire
Enjoy breakfast at your hotel in Arusha, then depart for Tarangire National Park. Game drive through the park, picnic lunch, hotel check-in, and then finish the day off with dinner and drinks at the lodge.
Day 2: Tarangire – Ngorongoro
After an early breakfast at the lodge we depart for Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Starting at the lip of the crater we drive down into the caldera area and spend the entire day doing game drives throughout the 260 square kilometers (100 square miles) of grassland, with a picnic lunch breaking up the day. We return to the lodge for dinner and drinks just prior to sundown.
Day 3: Ngorongoro or Tarangire – Arusha
Early morning breakfast at the lodge. Depending on the season and group preference we can take an early morning game drive through Ngorongoro crater or head back towards Arusha and do a half-day safari in Tarangire National park before heading back to Arusha in the late afternoon. Picnic lunch will be provided regardless of the choice of destination for the day. (Alternately, we can visit craft shops, schools, or NGO projects if that is desired.) The above is a sample itinerary, based on the needs of many of our clients that opt for a similar trip. If you would like to make any changes to this schedule please let us know and we will be happy to discuss options with you.
