Different from others Tanzania safaris, this program includes a walking safari, canoeing in Arusha National Park. You will walk through the rainforest to the crater of Mount Meru, passing by the wild animals grazing in 50 meters from you, then visit Tululusia waterfall, where you can freshen up after a walk. The next day you will do a safari in the Ngorongoro Crater, it is a national park with the richest diversity of wild animals per square kilometer. Plus, there is a chance to see nesting pink flamingos that flock there during certain periods. However, we cannot do it without binoculars because birds prefer to stay a little way off from the shore.

Day 0:Arrival Day

You will be met by office representative at the Arusha airport and get transfer to Arusha town. Dinner and overnight at the lodge.

Day 1:Arusha - Arusha National Park

In the morning, we will collect you from your hotel in Arusha and take you to the Arusha National Park. The park has an incredible variety of fauna and flora, which cannot fail to impress. Hollywood also chose this region to film the movie “Hatari” in which Hardy Kruger starred alongside the legendary John Wayne. Your day trip will include a visit to the Ngurdo Crater. Buffaloes, waterbucks, giraffes, warthogs, zebras and baboons can be seen all year round as well as many different bird species. At the Momella Gate, an armed ranger will be waiting for you to accompany you on your slowly walking safari that will give you the chance to experience the wildlife up-close.

After Lunch we will take you to Enjoy a peaceful and scenic canoeing safari following the shorelines of small Momella Lake. On this 2- 2.5 hours canoe safari you can view buffaloes, bushbuck, giraffes, hippos and many water birds living in and close to the water.Only a few other national parks in Tanzania give you such an opportunity and it is something that should not be missed.

During the afternoon, you will continue your tour in the safari vehicle through the Arusha National Park. After plenty of time allocated for you to observe the wildlife, we will take you back to Arusha.

Dinner and overnight as the accommodation standards we suggested for you.

Day 2:Arusha - Arusha National Park

On this day it is best to leave the hotel as early as possible so you can see the variety of animals that are only active during the morning hours; breakfast will be packed in lunchboxes specifically for this purpose. At 6:30 AM you will set off for Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and after about 3 hour you will already be inside the crater.

After finalizing gate entry procedure we will descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife for a full day’s safari tour. Supported by a year-round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually been seen here.

Later evening we will Drive you back to Arusha or Kilimanjaro international airport.
