SAFARI: LAKE MANYARA AND TARANGIRE (2 days)

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. 

Wildlife safari - 2 days 1 night, Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Park, Tanzania

 

SAFARI ITINERARY

Day 1: Moshi – Lake Manyara National Park 

You will be picked up at your accommodation in Moshi in the morning and drive to Lake Manyara National Park, which takes about 3 to 4 hours. Once you’ve arrived we’ll provide a picnic lunch, after which you will spend the rest of the day game driving through the park. There’s lots of animals to be spotted, like elephants, giraffes, pelicans and zebras, but the absolute highlight of Lake Manyara are the tree climbing lions. Before sunset you will drive to your accommodation for the night, where dinner will be provided. 

Day 2: Tarangire National Park – Moshi

After an early breakfast you’ll head towards Tarangire National Park for day 2 of your trip. The park is home to one of the largest elephant populations in Tanzania, and they are a delight to look at. And of course there’s many more species as well. After lunch you’ll drive back to Moshi with nothing but good memories!
