Day
2 Karatu to Ngorongoro – Lake Manyara



Breakfast at
the lodge and depart with  packed lunch
to Ngorongoro Conservation Area.





Ngorongoro Crater is inhabited by
almost every species of wildlife indigenous to East Africa including the rare
black rhino. In fact, the crater has the greatest concentration of wild life in
the planet. It contains a river, several swamps, a soda lake that, from the
top, looks like steam, full of flamingos, a forest and open plains. The large
bull elephants that reside here have extremely large tusks, due to the rich
mineral content of the volcanic soil and its grasses.



 The bottom of the crater dotted with
watering-­‐holes, shelters almost 30 000 animals in an area naturally enclosed by
the slopes of the volcano. Ngorongoro is the largest unbroken caldera in the
world and surrounded by very steep walls rising 610m from the floor. Covering
an area of 259 sq. kms, it is considered to be one of the Wonders of the
Natural World and is a veritable heaven for wildlife. Late afternoon drive back to Karatu
area

Day 3:Lake Manyara to Arusha 



AAfter breakfast at the Lodge, depart for morning game drive in Lake Manyara National Park. The Park is dramatically marked off by lush green vegetation consisting of tall trees of the ground water forest, which provide home to troops of baboons and blue monkeys. Further down, the forest opens up into woodland, grassland, swamps and beyond, the soda lake itself where over 350 species of birds, including the lively flamingo, pelican, sacred ibis, grebe and stork can be viewed. At the southern end of the Park are hot sulphur springs called MajiMoto. Manyara is noted for its numerous buffalo, elephant, giraffe, impala, hippo, as well as a great variety of smaller animals, and of course the very elusive tree-­‐climbing lions.
