The Great African Rift Valley straddles Tanzania and is responsible for some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes in Africa. From fertile lakes to luscious volcanic craters, the passage of centuries has made this part of Tanzania a haven for wildlife and a dream come true for safari goers.
During this action-packed safari, you will visit both Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater. Both of these vibrant national parks are filled with life of both the mammalian and avian varieties, and you will have chance to see some of the most spectacular animals, such as:
Along with one of the most critically endangered animals on the planet, the black rhino.
Your safari will be wholly private for the duration of your booking, with an experienced Tanzanian safari guide. Your vehicle will be solely for you and your party and which animals you want to focus on is a decision for your group alone. Since no one else will join you, you can also ask us to personalise the safari, by taking it in reverse order for example.

Day 1 Arusha – Lake Manyara National Park (130km – 2 hours)
To get your safari started, we will collect you from your hotel, residence, or the airport in Arusha early and head due west to begin your safari at Lake Manyara. This is one of the many lakes of the Great African Rift Valley, covering 325 square kilometres during the rainy season. On the way, you have chance to see some of the Tanzanian landscape as towns and villages pass you by.
When you make it to the lake, you’ll be given a picnic lunch and then then taken on your first game drive. On the lake itself you will have plenty of birdwatching opportunities, with over four hundred species know to nest and feed in the area. Away from the shores you’re likely to be able to spot:
And a huge range of other animals besides.
When at Lake Manyara you have the chance to take a canoe out onto the waters, giving you a novel way to watch the animals and get some stunning photographs. As an optional extra activity, there is a $60 per person fee. Once you’ve sated your wildlife dreams for the day you will head to your camp or lodge and have dinner and a good rest. Included in the first day of your Tanzanian safari is:
Day 2 Lake Manyara National Park – Ngorongoro Conservation Area (84km – 2 to 3 hours)
Your second day will start with breakfast and in short order you’ll be taken out to the shores of Lake Manyara for another game drive. Morning is the ideal time to watch the myriad animals that populate these lands, the air is cool and each animal is full of energy and desire for food and play. Take this chance to get photos of the lake and its inhabitants in the morning light whilst they are most active.
For lunch, you will return to your accommodation, at which point your luggage will be loaded into your tour vehicle and you will make your way to the Ngorongoro crater. The two areas are nearby and you will spend much of the journey still inside the parks and conservations areas that are here to protect the wildlife. The crater’s edge looms over the landscape, telling silent tales of destruction long-forgotten by an old volcano.
You’ll have dinner and spend the night in a camp or lodge on the rim of the crater, giving you stunning vistas over the basin below that plays host to a mass of biodiversity. The second day of your Tanzanian safari includes:
Day 3 Ngorongoro Conservation Area – Arusha (190km – 3 to 4 hours)
Rise early for breakfast followed by an extended game drive on the crater floor. This amphitheatre of nature will present you with viewing opportunities for some of the most wonderous creatures on the continent, including:
As well as many more that are awaiting your discovery.
Your game drive inside the crater will last six hours and your expert guide will be able to help you understand the animals you’re looking at as well as the landscape that they live in. Whilst still inside the crater you will be given a picnic lunch, a magical way to round off your experience of going on safari in Tanzania.
Once you leave the crater in the early afternoon, it’s time to return to Arusha. The journey will once again have you pass through the local countryside before you finish in the regional capital. Once in Arusha, you can ask your driver to take you to your hotel, residence, or to the local airport, depending on what your onward travel plans are. This final day of your safari in Africa includes:
