Francisco 8 months ago

The 4-day group shared tour including Tarangire National Park, Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro! Not only will you have the chance to see the highlights of Tanzania but you will also have the opportunity to make new friends and share great memories. Arusha, TZ (Day 1 - 4) A transfer from the airport can be arranged for an extra cost. Accommodation before the tour starts can be arranged Transport to next stop via Car Tarangire National Park, TZ (Day 4) Early this morning we depart Arusha for Tarangire National Park to spend the remainder of the day game viewing in the park with a picnic lunch, this afternoon we head to our campsite for dinner and overnight. This is a non-participation camp so everything will be set up for you on arrival at camp. Transport to next stop via Car Serengeti National Park, TZ (Day 4) After breakfast we depart with a picnic lunch for the Serengeti, game view en route to our campsite located in the Seronera Valley, arriving for dinner and overnight. Arguably the most famous National Park in the world, the Serengeti Ecosystem (the name comes from "siringit" the Masai word for "endless plains") consists of some 35,000 square kilometers. The famed plains are found to the south of the park east of the Seronera Valley, rolling hills in the less-visited Lobo area to the north and wooded riverine valleys to the remote east around Kirawira and Grumeti. The park itself is about 14,763 sq km in area and encompasses the main part of the Serengeti ecosystem. The ecosystem is defined by the annual migration of over 1,500,000 million wildebeest, zebras, and associated predators, which occurs throughout the year and extends into the game reserves, game controlled areas, and conservation area surrounding the park boundaries. Transport to next stop via Car Ngorongoro Conservation Area, TZ (Day 4) Early this morning we depart Serengeti National park with picnic lunch game viewing as me make our way towards the Ngorongoro Highlands and Simba Campsite on the edge of the rim for dinner and overnight. Ngorongoro Conservation Area is the name given to the 8,300 square kilometer piece of land that surrounds the famous Crater and the Highlands of the same name. The Crater was once the headquarters of Serengeti National Park of which it was an integral part, but in 1956, after intense pressure and lobbying from the local Masai community who were dispossessed of the lands when the National Park was set up, Ngorongoro was designated a Conservation Area. The Crater is all that it is made out to be, the hyperbole about Garden's Of Eden, Eighth Wonder Of The World, etc all justified by its perennial animal population. Transport to next stop via Car Ngorongoro Crater, TZ (Day 4) Early this morning we descend the crater walls to spend the day game viewing with a picnic lunch. After lunch, we depart for Arusha Arriving mid to late afternoon. The crater has the highest density of lions in Africa, with over 30 lions per 100 sq km, compared to the Serengeti, which has about 14 lions per 100 sq km; and Kruger National Park in South Africa with about 10 lions per 100 sq km. In Ngorongoro, it is not uncommon to find the lions lying in the shade of the parked tourist vehicle! It is home to one of the few remaining populations of black rhino in Tanzania and just about every other East African mammal, with the exception of giraffe (walls are too steep) and impala, all unafraid and used to the constant retinue of vehicles.
