Tarangire and Ngorongoro Crater

Trips/Tanzania Safari

2 days

Tarangire is one of Tanzania's best reserves as it's densely populated with large game like elephants, cheetahs and lions. In fact, elephant sightings are almost guaranteed! And then Ngorongoro Crater is probably Tanzania's brightest gem: a beautiful and staggeringly enormous natural wonder that's home to the Big Five as well as a host of other fascinating animals and numerous striking birds.

Day 1: Tarangire game drive

Today we take you on a game drive in the world-class Tarangire National Park! This wildlife reserve is home to many fascinating mammals, including lions, cheetahs, giraffes, leopards and warthogs. It's especially famous for its incredibly large elephant herds. And then there are also its enormous red termite mounds and impressively large baobab trees!
