5 Star rated safari company in Moshi, Tanzania on TripAdvisor
This 3-day Tanzania Lodge safari invites you to view a varied selection of creatures in some of the world’s most diverse habitats. You will not only see Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks, but also the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ngorongoro Crater. Elephant herds, flamingo flocks, and baboon bands may all be observed.
Pick up from your Moshi accommodation at 8 a.m. and travel to Tarangire National Park (with a lunchbox on the way). You will arrive late in the morning to enjoy a game drive with the potential to observe enormous groups of elephants that make this national park renowned. Tarangire is home to several of the famed Baobab trees as well as Amarula trees (whose fruit is one of the elephants' favorite sweet snacks!). As the sun sets, you'll make your way to your tented lodge for dinner and an overnight stay.
Breakfast is served at 6 a.m., followed by a visit to the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. Descend into this notorious crater to observe some of Tanzania's less common species, such as the black rhino. You will continue on a full-day wildlife drive over the crater's broad grassy plains, pausing for a picnic lunch at the Ngoitoktok hippo pools. After you've had your fill of animal viewing, you'll ascend the crater and return to Haven Nature for supper and lodging.
Another early morning departure (the early bird gets the worm... or, in this case, the greatest animals!) to Lake Manyara National Park. This park is well-known for its 220km2 lake, the shoreline of which are frequently obscured by a pink carpet of flamingos. Before returning to Moshi (arrive 5-6pm), you will go on a wildlife drive to visit Lake Manyara's legendary tree-climbing lions (unseen in any other national park).
Our safari guides are all well experienced in the field and passionate about showing you the amazing wildlife and culture Tanzania has to offer. All are fluent in English, and if you have a special language request just let us know as many will also have an additional language (e.g. French, Spanish, German). They are also well trained in 4×4 driving so will be able to get you anywhere on the varying road qualities we have here! Please feel free to ask your guide any questions you may have about the wildlife, culture or trip along the way.
4×4 Safari Landcruiser with 7 seats. Our safari vehicles have been specifically modified for wildlife viewing, with a pop top roof which will be open during all game drives and sliding windows. We carry at least one pair of binoculars in each vehicle. Please note our regular vehicles do not have air conditioning or refrigerator. If you would like us to arrange one of our upgraded vehicles with these facilities please just ask us to provide a quote.
Although we do everything within our powers to ensure your maximum comfort, the roads in Tanzania can vary greatly in quality from newly tarmacced to completely rough and muddy or dusty (depending on rainy or dry season!). Driving times can be long, even to cover what may seem like relatively short distances. Although we regularly maintain our vehicles (with a check-up in the garage after every safari) they can and do sometimes pop a tyre or breakdown. Our guides are well trained with lots of experience in car mechanics and 98% of the time can fix the issue themselves- and you’ll be off spotting zebras again in less than 20 minutes! Please be patient if your car encounters a mechanical issue.
A great area of confusion and unease for many tourists, tipping is a generally expected and highly appreciated (although not compulsory) part of your safari tour. It is a great way of saying ‘thank you’ to those that have helped you to have a wonderful experience here. Tips should be given at the end of your safari when saying your goodbyes. If you are part of a group safari it is best to try to discuss with everyone beforehand how you wish to do the tipping. To help you feel at ease we have provided a general guide below but please remember that tipping is a way of you showing your gratitude for your safari staff and is up to you! The guidelines given below are for a group amount, not individually.
Guide: 20-25 USD/ day
