Day 1: Arusha to Tarangire National Park
Depart Arusha to Tarangire at 08:00 am – with lunch boxes. Drive to Tarangire National Park,it’s about 110 Km and takes about 2 hours from Arusha. You will have your lunch in the park (your driver guide will pick a picnic site in the park where you can your lunch and thereafter continue with the game drive. Parks normally the parks open at 6:00 am to 6:00 pm – you will be at your next lodge in time for dinner.Tarangire National Park is a huge park best known for its large herds of elephants — but it’s also great for lion and leopard — wonderful for bird life — great variety of landscape and wildlife. The gorgeous Silale Swamp, towards the south of the park, is magnificent — andalmost always rich in wildlifetaking advantage of this reliable water source. The park. provides water not only from the swamp, but also from the Tarangire River — and during the dry season it’s the primary source of water for animals from the entire area, making for fantastic viewing. I particularly love it, though, in the green season — its beauty then is unmatched.

Day 2: Lake Manyara National Park
This is another lovely park that you will visit today, lying roughly between Tarangire and the Ngorongoro Crater. It boasts a beautiful little groundwater forest, the only real forest in Tanzania where you can spot the adorable Blue Monkeys (also sometimes found on the Crater rim) lots of giraffe, elephants, lion, leopard and a very pretty lake dusted pink in the distance with flamingos .
In the forest, just beyond the entry gate, there’s a Treetop Walkway which is quite fun a series of suspension bridges through the forest canopy. Velvet and Blue Monkeys love it!
The entrance to Lake Manyara is in the village of Mto wa Mbu, where you can arrange for a full village visit — and/or a visit to a local school (the kids are wonderful!). Many lodges in this are nearby coffee plantations, and most will also provide tours. At harvest time you’ll see women walking along the roads with massive bags of coffee beans balanced alarmingly on their heads
After the game drive Cycle through Mto wa Mbu Village where you will experience local life and enjoy the sights and sounds of this vibrant town before riding to a Mama’s house where you will feast on a traditional Tanzanian meal.
