Mawenzi Adventures


Our cheapest multi-day safari package is ideal for lovers of elephants with limited time or a limited budget. Similar in some aspects, different in others, Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Park are a wonderful introduction to Tanzanian wildlife.

For a slightly more diverse (but also slightly more expensive) 2-day safari, we recommend our package including either Lake Manyara or Tarangire National Park, and Ngorongoro crater.

Both Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Parks offer the possibility of doing a walking safari rather than a jeep safari, or to organize your visit as a combination of both. In Lake Manyara National Park, we also recommend the Treetop Walk that takes you over bridges that are suspended between the trees, to get a completely different view and experience. And how about a canoe safari? Please let us know if you want to add any of these activities to your itinerary while you send us your booking request
