Our 3-day Camping safari Tanzania is the best you can take if you are looking for a ‘no-frills’ budget safari in Tanzania but still enjoying all the wildlife and game watching opportunity that you can get in the shortest time possible.
This 3 days safari in Tanzania takes you to some of the best national parks in the Northern Tanzania Safari Circuit including a visit to Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park as well as the Ngorongoro Crater which is UNESCO World heritage site and one of the best wildlife areas in Africa and the whole world.
3 day Tanzania Camping Safari Where to Stay?
Tarangire National Park has several campsites inside but they are seldom used because clients on safari in Tarangire National Park would rather spend the night in better established camping grounds just outside the park or even at Mto wa Mbu closer to Lake Manyara National Park if going that way the next day on a longer camping safari in Tanzania. Our package is no exception and you will either spend the night at a campsite just outside the Tarangire National Park (especially if you wish to do more game drives early in the morning ( at extra park entry fees cost), or you can simply spend the night at a nice campsite at Lake Manyara like the Migombani Campsite or the Panorama Campsite or Lilac Campsite Fanaka Campsite at Mto wa Mbu.
Apart from the campsites at Mto wa Mbu and at the park boundaries of Tarangire one can stay at the Ngorongoro Simba Campsite which is located at the edge of the famous Ngorongoro Crater with nice view over the Crater floor. Please request for a quote for staying here.
What to See on your 3 days Camping safari Tanzania
The 3 Days camping safari in Tanzania including a visit to Tarangire, Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater offers you a chance to see a lot of wildlife and birdlife in the course of that shortest period. In fact it is the most rewarding short safari in Tanzania because you can with very little luck spot all the Big 5 including Buffaloes, Elephants, Lions, Leopards and Black Rhino.
Apart from the Big 5 opportunity you can spot a lot of other animals including giraffes, zebras, impalas, gazelles, did diks, warthogs, hartebeests, even gnus in the Crater floor, hyenas, cheetahs, serval cats and many many more. With the visit to the Crater’s floor and Lake Manyara you will also have a chance spot a lot of aquatic and non aquatic birds including some of the rare species than can be spotted in Tarangire National Park only.
