Tarangire | Ngorongoro Two parks | two days KANDOO | Tarangire elephant herd

Ngorongoro and Tarangire whistle-stop

For those short on time, this safari is the perfect way to see the best of Tanzania’s wildlife in just 2 days. The Ngorongoro Crater is a “must see” destination, home to over 25,000 animals and your best chance of seeing the “Big Five”. Enjoy the spectacular scenery of Tarangire, where families of elephants congregate year round by the Tarangire River.

Day 1: Arusha - Tarangire National Park

You will be met by your private guide and vehicle and driven to Tarangire National Park, arriving with plenty of time for an afternoon game-drive. The Tarangire River runs through the park attracting a huge number of elephants, buffalo, giraffe and antelope, particularly in the dry season between June and October. It is not uncommon to see large herds of elephants roaming through Tarangire's savannah grasses or taking shade under the odd looking "upside down trees" (baobab) that are dotted around the park. The park also boasts over 550 different bird species, the most diverse in Africa, including the Kori Bustard, the heaviest flying bird in the World!

Day 2: Ngorongoro Crater-Arusha

After an early breakfast, you will drive to the fascinating wildlife arena of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a “must see” safari destination. Home to more than 25,000 large mammals, it is not unusual to see all of the ‘Big Five’ (buffalo, elephant, rhino, lion and leopard) in a single day. The crater, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is over 260km² (100 miles²) and was formed when a massive volcano exploded and collapsed on itself 2 - 3 million years ago. It is now the largest intact volcanic caldera in the world and often referred to as “Africa’s Eden”. Driving through the Ngorongoro Highlands, you will arrive at the crater rim and then descend down 610m (2000 ft) onto its floor to start your safari extravaganza. Late afternoon you will start your journey back to your hotel in Arusha or transfer to Kilimanjaro Airport.
