3 Days Best Tanzania safari tour
3 Days Best Tanzania safari tour brings to Tarangire National park, Lake Manyara national park and the Ngorongoro crater.
Tarangire National Park Safari
Tarangire National Park is famous for its giants, the boababs and elephants. There is also a wide variety of wildlife including all the three big cats that every safari seeker is ever enthusiastic to see. All these set against the back drop of towering baobabs, riverine woodland, swamps and pockets of open grasslands.In the dry season (July to October) the Tarangire National Park is dotted with elephants like cattle and is one of the best places in Africa to see big herds of these magnificent African giants. Tarangire National park has the second highest concentration of wildlife of any Tanzanian National Park (after the Serengeti) Driving through the towering boababs of astounding girth scarred by decades of elephant piercings with the trunks and the weight of elephants rubbing their bodies gives you an awe feeling. In the dry season Tarangire is believed to have the world’s largest concentration of elephants and you can see all this on a 3 Days Tanzania Safari. During this dry season period water sources begin to dry out, a few water holes and rivers remain and these attract the wildlife making spotting them even easier.
Lake Manyara National Park
Lake Manyara National Park is another gem on the 3 Days Best Tanzania safari tour. Though smaller compared to other National parks in Tanzania, Lake Manyara offers a whole range of different experiences in a relatively compact space. Just beneath the the dramatic cliffs of the western escarpment of the rift valley is Lake Manyara which plays hosts to millions of flamingoes and other birdlife during the rainy season. The Lake covers 1/3 of the park but it shrinks considerably during the dry season. In between the beautiful Lake and the escarpment safari game trails weave through the acacia forest and this happens to be the home of the world’s famous tree climbing lions of Lake Manyara. Here we also find big herds of elephants which you witness on the 3 Days Best Tanzania safari tour. It is amazing to look up and see a whole pride of lions staring down at you or lazily sleeping in the acacia branches. If you fancy the outdoors and experiencing nature away from your 4×4 safari jeep, you can go on a safari walk. The park allows two to three hour walking safari with an armed ranger along 3 trails. The Lake shore Trail starts 38km into the park near the hot springs, it crosses the acacia woodland and savannah, this is the trail where walkers are most likely to meet large mammals and the beautiful flamingoes.
The Ngorongoro Crater
You can not do the 3 Days Best Tanzania safari tour and not visit the world reknown Ngorongoro crater. One of Africa’s great wonders. An ancient caldera, surrounded by steep , forested walls in deep green, is magnificent from the view point and its hue and perspectives change with the light and the clouds. On the floor of this magnificent haven is where the magic happens. As the sun touches the highest peaks rising from the crater rim, wildlife begins to stir, and this lost world comes alive with possibility. Seeing the critically endangered black rhino is a big plus on you game drive down on the floor. Predators here include the spotted hyena, lions, golden and silver backed jackals. These are sustained by large numbers of wildebeests, zebras, bufalloes and gazelles. Catch the hippos around the lovely Ngoitoktok springs picnic site. Lake Magadi attracts flamingoes in the rainy season. The saline nature provides ideal conditions for the Algae. Lerei Forest is good for elephants,
