Live the real Africa with 4 Safari Game Drives in the popular parks in combination with tropical Zanzibar.

“Just do it!”
What have we enjoyed here! The first day of arrival by small plane, even before landing you can see the animals already running. Then a visit to the local village and a boat Safari.

It was so great to see up close hippos, crocodiles, beautiful birds, and the setting sun. And the next day a real Safari!

We really enjoyed our guide and driver who did everything to show us as much as possible.

The name of the park originates from the Tarangire river, which is crossing the park and is the main source of fresh water for the wildlife.

This day brings you a road trip through northern Tanzania with destination Lake Natron. You depart from Africa Safari Lake Manyara after breakfast. The drive takes around 3 to 4 hours maximum and it's the perfect way to see different sides of Tanzania’s changing landscape. Passing the Rift Valley and driving deeper you will find the green vegetation making a place for a dry and dusty landscape. The occasional small Maasai villages are dots in the scenery.
The more you reach into the north, remains of old volcanoes rise around you. Among them, there is the still active Oldoinyo Lengai, in Maasai language called “the mountain of God”.
When you finally reach Lake Natron, you might perhaps catch its smoke disappearing in the sky. The night is spent in a comfortable bed at Africa Safari Lake Natron.

New day, new chances and new animals to be spotted, in Tanzania’s oldest and most popular park.
You might be lucky and see how the wildebeests migrate in columns of 40 km long, joined my countless zebras and gazelles, hunted and eaten by crocodiles awaiting their prey in the water. In case the migration is not crossing your path, the big cat friends you made yesterday might pass by to greet you again.
Serengeti is always filled with adventure and new discoveries. It is time to drive towards the highlight of your safari: the Ngorongoro Crater. A visit to this showcase of the Ngorongoro conservation area must be part of your trip.
The Crater is around 3 million years old and it is the world's largest, inactive, intact and unfilled caldera. Inside the 8200 square meter volcano is a variety of wildlife active and the rarely seen black rhino has made it it's home. Lions, elephants, zebra’s, hyena’s and many others keep him company.
You enjoy your lunch during the safari and when your heart and camera are filled with beautiful pictures, you head back to where it all started: Africa Safari Lake Manyara.
