4 Days Home of the Wilderness is the best trip for both travellers. If you only have 4 days but still want to visit the most famous parks of Tanzania (Serengeti and Ngorongoro, plus Manyara or Tarangire) this is the perfect tour for you. It only spends one night in Serengeti, which we usually think it’s too little, but if your timeframe is short and you really want to visit this amazing park, then it is the right choice for you.
DAY 1: LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK
Pickup from your hotel at 8am and begin a gorgeous journey across the good great rift valley at Lake Manyara parkland for a full outdoor game drive.

Permanent residents of this park have a great view that embrace giraffes, elephants, impalas and a large quantity of buffaloes.
The lake is also home to a large number of hippos.
Some distinctive facts concerning this park includes the tree rise lions, flamingos within the lake shore, yet because the Ground hornbill bird and therefore the Crested Eagle.
The landscapes of Lake Manyara are something that cannot be described with words, and the game drives along the lake provide stunning photo opportunities of giraffes and buffaloes in the foreground and the lake (and its flamingos) in the background. During this day, some extra tours are possible, including a bike tour or a boat excursion.
In the afternoon, we shall transfer to the camp for dinner.
“SOME UNIQUE FACTS ABOUT THIS PARK INCLUDE THE TREE CLIMBING LIONS, FLAMINGOS IN THE LAKE SHORE, AS WELL AS THE GROUND HORNBILL AND THE CRESTED EAGLE.”
DAY 2: SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
After associate early breakfast, we will depart towards the most famous National park in the World, the Serengeti.
The driving itself, although long, is spectacular. You will drive up the crater highlands, making a quick stop at the rim for an out of this world view of Ngorongoro Crater.
This will be associate memorable moment for anyone seeing it for the primary time.
As you progress well into the Serengeti, you will see why the name means, in local language, “endless plains”. The park has 6,900 sq. mile (18,000 sq. km) and for most of it, the plains will stretch to the horizon defying your senses and perception of distances.
It is the house of the good Migration and to a pair of million wildebeests, hundreds of thousands of zebras and all kinds of antelopes including the abundant impalas and Thomson’s gazelles. As for large Cats and huge predators, it is the place of option to look out for lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, with many television scenes like the famous river crossings
having been filmed in this park. Smaller animals like foxes, mongoose, honey badgers, jackals, monkeys, baboons, rock hyrax and African hares, together with more than 500 species of birds, also inhabit this park.

This tour includes a short lecture describing the archeological digs and geologic characteristics of the Olduvai George, as well as a visit to their museum.
DAY 3: SERENGETI TO NGORONGORO
On this day we recommend an early morning wakeup so as to try and do an early morning game drive (when the animals are a lot more active) and see one amongst the
best sunrises you’ll ever witness. It’s really one of the most beautiful experiences to have. After the game drive, we return to the camp for a rewarding brunch and then we’ll proceed to Ngorongoro, the 8th wonder of the Natural World. The crater spreads for 102 sq.miles and has a pair of 2.000 ft high walls, making it virtually a Noah’s ark and inhabiting almost every species of wildlife that is indigenous to East Africa.
It’s one amongst the terribly rare locations within the whole continent wherever you’ll be able to witness a numerous number of black old rhinos.
The concentration of African life if the best within the continent.
The crater has a river, several swamps, a soda lake with a great concentration of flamingos, a forest and open plains. It’s also famous for its elephants which are the largest in the world and have huge tusks.
This is due to the wealthy mineral content of the volcanic soil and its grasses.
Ngorongoro Crater is truly a Wonder of the Natural World. You will reach Ngorongoro in time for a sundowner.

After the sport/game drive, there will be time for a picnic lunch near the beautiful hippo Lake.
After lunch, we will have time for a short game drive and then ascend the crater and exit Ngorongoro Conservation Area towards Arusha.
We expect to be back in Arusha around 5pm just in case if there’s a flight to catch or another scenario/ situation to carry on.
ADDITIONAL EXTRA DAY TO VISIT THE HADZABE TRIBE IN LAKE EYASI OR OLDONYO SAMBU MAASAI VILLAGE.
We have a tendency to suggest adding each day to go to Lake Eyasi, so as to go to the fascinating Hadzabe tribe within the next morning.
This is one of the last true nomadic tribes in Africa and a truly fascinating experience where you will join the members of the village in their local morning activities.
Alternatively, you can still finish the safari in Arusha and, on the next day, visit a traditional Maasai Village., where you will be guided by a Maasai Chief, who will make a case for you their habits, how they live, their cooking techniques, how they take care of livestock, their songs and dances.
