Flight Zanzibar - Kilimanjaro
You’ll set off after arriving at Kilimanjaro airport and make your way to the village of Materuni in the Kilimanjaro foothills. A truly local village without the usual tourist trappings, it’s a great window into the real Tanzania.
You’ll start with a tour of a local coffee plantation, learning about how coffee is grown and even trying your hand at roasting and grinding your own coffee.
You’ll then take a guided walk to Materuni Waterfall. Your walk takes you through local fruit and vegetable plantations, and your guide will teach you about the local culture along the way.
Finish your day trip with a refreshing dip in the waterfall pool and a delicious picnic lunch before heading back to your hotel.
DAY TWO - LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK
You'll depart from Hotel after breakfast for the drive to Lake Manyara National Park.
The journey takes approximately two hours, but we'll pass through the market town of Mto Wa Mbu along the way. This agricultural and fresh produce market is a melting pot of local cultures and a souvenir hunter's paradise. After a brief stop at the village market, you'll enter Lake Manyara National Park. The park is truly a photographer's playground and offers some of the best game viewings in the world.
You can expect to see many of Africa's most well-known animals, with the tree-climbing lions a particular treat. These proud predators lounge in acacia trees practically begging to be photographed.
Bird-watchers will find Lake Manyara is an absolute delight, with a huge variety of birds on display in the park. Even the novice can expect to be amazed by large flamingo flocks, circling birds of prey, and the brightly colored lilac-breasted roller. You'll then retire to your chosen accommodation for dinner and a good night's rest.
DAY THREE - NGORONGORO CRATER - ARUSHA
After breakfast, you'll depart for Ngorongoro Crater; sometimes considered as the 8th Wonder of the World.
Home to over 120 species of mammals including the fabled Big Five, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is one of the most sought-after safari destinations in the world. It's a particularly good place to see the endangered black rhinoceros enjoying a lonely meal out on the grass plains, as well as a place to see large numbers of hippopotamus enjoying the cool water. From the comfort of your open-top vehicle, you'll be able to observe and photograph some of Africa's most recognizable faces.
The crater is home to a large number of predators including lions, leopards, cheetahs, jackals, and hyenas, as well as a large population of wildebeest, zebras, antelope, cape buffalo, and more.
It is truly one of Africa's premier safari destinations. After the thrills and excitement of the day, you will have a picnic lunch by the park's famous hippo pool. Thereafter, you will drive back to Arusha Airport.
