Offering three national parks in as many days, this tour never disappoints. The parks are breathtaking, and the variety of animals is huge. From tree sitting lions at Lake Manyara, over hundreds of elephants at Tarangire, to the diversity of Ngorongoro with the chance to spot some of the rarest species like the black Rhino. Let’s go!
