Tarangire & Ngorongoro Crater Safari


Explore the vast Tarangire - famous for its elephant, lion and leopard populations. Then travel into the world's largest unfilled collapsed volcano – the Ngorongoro Crater reserve - with over 25,000 large animals including the endangered black rhinoceros, buffalo and hippopotamus. This trip is setup perfectly to go before or after your Kilimanjaro trek.


Day 1: Tarangire National Park

You will be picked up at your hotel in Moshi/Arusha at 7am before making your way to the gates of Tarangire National Park. This is where you will begin your tour which is famous for its spectacular large animal population, as well as the largest concentration of Elephants in the country. Your accommodation will be in a tented camp for the evening and all food is provided.


An early start today as you head to the Ngorongoro Crater for your final game drive. The crater is the largest collapsed volcano in the world and one of Africa's seven natural wonders. After your morning game drive, you will enjoy lunch by a Hippo pool. The day comes to an end with an afternoon drive back to Moshi/Arusha.

Great safari trip - saw all the big 5 and really enjoyed it!


(Jan 2020)

It was just me from our Kilimanjaro group, who stayed for safari. Kilimanjaro is an unique challenge, but the African experience would not be complete without safari. It takes only two days to visit Tarangire and Ngorongoro and I would say it's a must. Both have beautiful nature and spectacular wildlife. With a bit of luck one can see big five in just two days. My guide Joseph anticipated well wildlife behaviour giving me a chance for some nice pictures. He also drove safely all the way from Moshi and back and in the parks. It was a very nice addition to my Kilimanjaro trek

You will be travelling with experienced and qualified guides, and this safari is very safe. However, it is important to abide by the rules set by the National Park and always follow the advice of your guides.

The average temperature is 25C in the day and 15C in the morning/evenings. We recommend bringing a fleece and waterproof jacket, although you'll spend most of the safari within the 4x4s.

It can be generally hot during the day, so sunhats, suncream, sunglasses are recommended. In the morning and evenings it can be a little cooler, so pack a sweater, fleece or jacket.
