on 21/02/2017

Day 1: This safari starts either in Arusha or Ecoboma Camp in Mto Wa Mbu. After breakfast we drive to Tarangire National Park. The sixth largest national park in Tanzania, Tarangire, like Ecoboma Camp, is located in Manyara Region. The Tarangire River attracts many wildlife during the dry season. Thousands of migratory Zebras and wildebeest concentrate this park also famous for high density of elephants and baobab trees. Over 550 bird species have also been recorded making it an ornithologists paradise. Other wildlife include waterbuck, giraffe, dikdik, impala, eland, Grant's gazelle, vervet monkey, banded mongoose, olive baboon, African lion, leopard, cheetah, caracal, honey badger, and African wild dog. Watch out for the white giraffe spotted here in 2015. Dinner and overnight at our Ecoboma’s camp just 2kms from the shores of Lake Manyara in Mto wa Mbu. Sleep in either cottages, huts or spacious triple rooms. The Ecoboma Campsite has modern toilet and shower block with hot and cold showers. 

Day 2: Early morning (Dawn) cycling excursion to the shores of Lake Manyara. We will be riding among migratory wildlife in an migration corridor with close viewing of Zebras and other grazers. At the lake shores we have an awesome moment viewing the various species of birds the habitate in the alkaline lake. We return to camp for relaxing mid morning to lunchtime. Afternoon exploring the cultural melting pot that is Mto wa Mbu village. We leisurely walk through farmlands and villages paying attention to the various income generating projects e.g the carvers and other community projects supported by IntoAfrica Ecotravel. Dinner and drinks around a campfire. Overnight at Ecoboma camp.

Day 3: This morning with our picnic lunches, we set off for the Ngorongoro crater and descend to its floor for a memorable game viewing session. The caldera of Ngorongoro marks the ancient walls of a collapsed volcano with a circular crater that is 20kms in diameter and with steep walls of over 2,000 feet stretching out to over 7,500 feet above sea level - home to over 25,000 herbivores and a proportionately high density of predatory cats.  Because of permanent water supply and a precise balance of predator and prey, most of the wildlife remains here year-round, you can expect to see lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes and many more animal species and birds. We will have a full day game drive in the park and later retire back to our camp in Mto wa Mbu for a well deserved Tanzanian BBQ dinner.

Lake Manyara National Park

on 15/02/2017

Lake Manyara National Park is comprised of forest, woodland, grasslands, and swamps. Two-thirds of the park is covered by water and Lake Manyara is host to thousands of flaamingoes, at certain times of year, as well as other diverse bird life. The highlight of Lake Manyara Park is the large population of elephants, tree-climbing lions and hippos that can be observed at a much closer range than in other parks. This park is also home to the largest concentration of baboons in the world. 

Wildlife drives, canoeing (when water levels are high enough), mountain bike tours and bird watching are the most popular activities in Lake Manyara National Park. Our EcoBoma Campsite is located close to the shores of Lake Manyara (www.ecobomacamp.com)
