2 Days Tanzania Safari where you visit

This two days safari takes you to the most celebrated UNESCO world heritage area in Tanzania; the Ngorongoro Crater as well as Tarangire National Park a world famous safari park for its unusual herds of elephants. The park and Ngorongoro Crater are not very far from each other and with a range of accommodations having set up at Karatu (just outside the Ngorongoro Conservation), you can do a very rewarding safari in Tanzania in just 2 days and one night stay at one of the many lodges found around Karatu area or even the Mto wa Mbu and Lake Manyara area which is actually midway between the two wildlife areas.

What you see on the two days Safari in Tanzania

On this short safari package you will first of all visit the Tarangire National Park where you will get the chance to enjoy scenery of the African Savannah dotted with gigantic baobab trees and get the rare chance to track the largest herds of elephants in the whole of Africa. Tarangire is known for the two aspects, large baobabs and largest herds of the jumbos but there is more to visiting the park than just that. The park hosts a lot of migratory big game and small animals ( that migrate between here and Manyara) but also a lot of bird life including some very rare and almost indigenous only to this park like the Ashy Starlings for example. Other rare animals include the oryx and the gerenuk. A range of other common animals that can be spotted include, buffaloes, giraffes, lions, cheetahs, impalas, dik diks, leopards, gazelles, elands, hartebeests (Kongoni) and many others.
At Ngorongoro you will spice up this short Tanzania safari by having the chance to spot the Big five in one day at the Crater floor including the Lions, Elephants, Buffaloes, the elusive leopards and the rare Black Rhinos. This among many others resident in the Ngorongoro Crater the area being the wildlife area with the highest concentration of wildlife in such a small area of only 16 – 19 Kilometers across (diameter) at the most.
