4 Day Tanzania Safari Starting / Finishing Point & Where to Stay

Serengeti Scenery landscapeApart from the 4 day safari in Tanzania we also can arrange your airport pick up / drop off as well as your accommodation in Arusha if you want us to arrange that for you so that we may offer a full package to you.
The 4 days Tanzania lodge safari as described on this package involves staying at some nice handpicked mid range lodges and tented camps in order to keep the costs affordable but you can still take the same package while staying at more luxurious upper mid range or standard luxury lodgings ( lodge or tented camp), or even as a basic camping safari where you stay in dome shaped tents at public camping grounds in and around the parks and wildlife areas. Depending on your preference and budget.

Combine 4 Days Tanzania Safari with Kilimanjaro climb

The safari tour can also be combined with a 4 days or 3 day Mount Meru climb or it can also be done as a short safari add on to a Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing tour which may take from 5 days to 8 days depending on which route you choose to ascend to the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro the rooftop of Africa.

The same package can also be combined with a visit to Zanzibar just like our our sample Tanzania Safari and Zanzibar packages in this list.

Let us customize a longer tour for you or let us know what accommodations you would love to use in this tour and we shall customize it for you or offer you this 4 days Tanzania safari as it is.

4 Day Tanzania Safari  Affordable Itinerary

Day 1

Arusha – Lake Manyara National Park.

Pick up from your lodge / hotel in Tanzania, you will drive across the floor of the Great Rift Valley to Lake Manyara National Park. This small beautiful gem of a park with its lush vegetation and tropical forests of giant fig trees and mahogany trees, takes its name from the Maasai word for “euphorbia tirucalli”, a wild bush which is used to make a thorny hedge to protect their cattle locally known as a boma.

This small gem of a national park hosts herds of Elephants, buffalo, Masai giraffes, zebras and a variety of antelopes that inhabit the park not forgetting a variety of monkey species and a large population of hippos that roam around the lake and occupy the lake itself. On a luck day you may see also spot the legendary tree climbing lions of Lake Manyara National Park which are well known for their tree climbing habits, lazily resting on the branches of an “Acacia tortilis” trees. The bird life is also abundant with flamingos, pelicans, horn bills and plenty of forest species. In the late afternoon your driver will take you to a lodge at Karatu for dinner and overnight. Overnight at Eileen’s Tree Inn at Karatu. Packed lunch and dinner included.

Day 2

Lake Manyara - Serengeti National Park.

After breakfast you proceed via the Ngorongoro Conservation Area traversing the Malanja depression towards Serengeti one of the most famous wildlife conservation areas in the world. First you will make a brief stop at the Naabi Hill Gate where you can go for a short walk at the Naabi Hill Kopjes (huge granite boulders) where you can stretch your legs as your guide sorts out the paperwork. After lunch at the picnic site at the gate you continue on game drives all afternoon at the vast Serengeti National Park, named after the ancient Masai word ‘Siringet’, which basically translates to ‘endless plains’. Truly the plains are endless indeed. Overnight at Osinon Serengeti Camp at Seronera, in Central Serengeti. All meals included.
Day 3

Serengeti –Ngorongoro Conservation area.

Early morning game drive at Serengeti and visit to the hippo pools and Seronera Visitor’s Center if you wish. After a hearty breakfast in the bush camp you will then proceed with your game drives in the Serengeti back tracking towards Naabi Hill Gate again until early afternoon time to cross over back to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area where you reach your lodge for dinner and overnight stay. Overnight will be back at the nice mid range lodge in Karatu; the Eileen’s Tree Inn. All meals included.
Day 4

Ngorongoro Crater – Drive back Arusha town

After an early morning breakfast you register again at the Loduare Main Gate and descend into the crater for a wonderful game drive (with a picnic lunch served) inside the Ngorongoro Crater at a designated picnic site. As very few animals migrate in and out of the Ngorongoro Crater with its approx 2000 ft. high walls, you can expect to see many animals at very close range including lions, zebras, hippos, elephants, jackals, rhinos, many other antelopes, as well as flamingos, and many birds and other species. Your safari guide just like in the Serengeti will be in constant contact with other safari drivers and will surely amaze you with his unique skills in locating the hidden animals. After enough game drives and depending in your schedule your driver will take you back to Arusha where you will be dropped back at your hotel.

End of safari.

In case you are departing on the same evening we can offer you a drop off at the Kilimanjaro International Airport at a very nominal fee as part of our gratitude for booking your safari with us.
Return to Arusha after completing your game drive
