Day 3: Tarangire

After breakfast, drive for 2 hours to Tarangire National Park for an exciting game drive in this amazing park, home to thousands of elephants, arriving at Tarangire Sopa Lodge in time for lunch. Later on, depart for another game drive in this wilderness with an amazing variety of wildlife until evening. Overnight: Tarangire Sopa Lodge (B/L/D)

Day 4: Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater

Depart Tarangire early and within 1 hour, you are entering the lush forests of beautiful Lake Manyara where you can spot impala, buffalo, wildebeest, hippo, giraffe and the famous tree-climbing lion.

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater

Explore the famous Ngorongoro Crater, Africa's 'Garden of Eden' and home to the 'Big Five', including the black-maned lion. Departing early you are soon descending into this amazing crater full of wildlife for an extended game drive on the crater floor with picnic lunch. After lunch, continue your game drive until the late afternoon before returning to your accommodation to relax. Overnight: Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge. (B/L/D)
