This 3 days safari Tanzania starts and ends in Arusha town the base town for all Tanzania safari tours in the Northern Tanzania Safari circuit. The 3 days tour is a great package for all ages due to the short distances involved because all the 3 parks that you will visit are located not very far from one another.
Starting and ending in Arusha the 3 day Tanzania safari takes you to the Ngorongoro Crater ( one of the two most famous wildlife parks in Tanzania) but also a visit to Tarangire National Park and the Lake Manyara National Park a small ever green gem of its own kind.
Starting with Tarangire National Park you will visit this theater of the wild that is famous for its unusually huge herds of elephants and the gigantic baobab trees that dot the park. Accommodation will be in a nice tented camp in the vicinity of the park just outside the park boundary with great views over the plains across as well as the Lake Burunge in the far horizon, but you may also stay at a cheaper mid range lodge in the Karatu area where we can take you late in the afternoon after satisfactory game drives in the Tarangire.

You will then proceed with your 3 days Tanzanian safari adventure with a visit to the Ngorongoro Crater which is world famous for extraordinary numbers of wildlife which can be spotted at very close range. Think of lions, elephants, leopards, black rhinos, buffaloes; all the big five can be spotted in this ‘Eden of Africa’ in one day with a little bit of luck! Accommodation on this day can in a lodge located directly at the Crater rim ( at extra cost) or at the nice mid-range lodge that we have included in this published tour in Karatu which is just a stone throw away from the Loduare Main Gate to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
Your third and last day of your 3 days safari in Tanzania from Arusha will be visiting the ever green Lake Manyara National Park, of the legendary tree climbing lions among many other animals and birds that can be seen in this small park. The park is good place to see the hippos at the lake side but also you may be lucky to spot flamingos, and many other aquatic birds, with over 400 birds species having been recorded here.
Later in the afternoon you will be dropped back at your hotel in Arusha or you can be dropped ( at a small fee) at the Kilimanjaro International Airport if departing on this day. That marks the end of your amazing ‘taste of Tanzania’ 3 Days Tanzania Safari from Arusha.
