NORTHERN TANZANIA SAFARI TOUR
Tarangire National Park – Lake Manyara National Park – Ngorongoro Crater
Tarangire National Park
After the Serengeti, Tarangire has the greatest concentration of wildlife in Tanzania. In the dry season, the Tarangire River is a magnet for thirsty wildlife. Large herds of elephants and migratory wildebeest, zebras, buffalos, impala, gazelle, hartebeests, and elands gather, and not surprisingly the predators follow. This is also the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as oryx and gerenuk are regularly spotted. Tarangire is also known for its spectacular baobab trees and its breathtaking views of the Maasai Steppe and the mountains to the south.
Located just a few hours’ drive from the town of Arusha, Tarangire is a popular stop for safaris traveling through the northern circuit on their way to Ngorongoro and the Serengeti. The park extends into two game-controlled areas and the wildlife is allowed to move freely throughout.
Maramboi Tented Camp
This is a unique opportunity to experience and explore the Tarangire and Manyara ecosystem.
Maramboi Tented Camp offers permanent camp facilities and endless vistas of rolling golden grasslands and palm-lined desert between Tarangire and Manyara Lake. A visit to the area is essential for anyone interested in evolution and the origins of mankind, and an explanation of the Rift Valley. It is a complete semi-desert experience focusing on safari walks and game drives.
The camp has 40 spacious tents built on ample wooden decks. Among them are 26 standard rooms, 10 suites, and 2 units with 2 rooms interconnected – ideal for families with children. They all have en-suite facilities and private verandas with 24-hour electric lighting.
Lake Manyara National Park
With the Lake to its east and the Manyara Escarpment to its west, the Lake Manyara National Park offers breathtaking views and a large variety of habitats. There are acacia woodlands, water forests, baobab-strewn cliffs, algae-streaked hot springs, swamps, and the lake itself. The small park is able to support a large number of animal species and incredible birdlife. Manyara has the largest concentration of baboons anywhere in the world and the lions here are also renowned for their tree climbing.
Ngorongoro Farm House
Ngorongoro Farm House Lodge is situated beneath the majestic Oldeani Volcano and boasts easy access to both the untamed wilderness of Ngorongoro Conservation Area, as well as the simple pleasure of a ramble through 500 acres of farmland.
Ngorongoro Farm House offers 52 cottages, 49 standard rooms, and 3 suite rooms, all with ample space inside, built on the style of an old colonial farm and rustically decorated with local materials, full of details of good taste, with the purpose of offering our clients an imaginary journey to the life of the days gone by.
The Ngorongoro Crater is game viewing gone crazy and it is not surprising that it is one of Tanzania’s major tourist drawcards. Within the crater rim, a daily wildlife drama is played out as large herds of zebra and wildebeest graze near lions, leopards, elephants, and black rhinos. Outside of the crater, a similar drama continues in a more spread-out manner with Maasai herdsmen thrown into the mix.
