After breakfast drive to Lake Manyara with lunch boxes from Keys Hotel for game drive in Lake Manyara
Manyara Region takes its name from Lake Manyara, which is one of the major lakes formed in ancient times by the Great Rift Valley. It is the only Region in Tanzania to be bisected into two by the Great Rift Valley. It is a major wildlife water source and is, therefore, an essential part of the wildlife ecosystems of Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Tarangire National Park. In addition, Lake Manyara is the country’s largest breeding ground for tens of thousands of flamingo

The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania was established in 1952. It is home to the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth-the great migration of wildebeest and zebra. The resident population of lion, cheetah, elephant, giraffe, and birds is also impressive. There is a wide variety of accommodation available, from luxury lodges to mobile camps. The parks covers 5,700 sq miles, (14,763 sq km), it’s larger than Connecticut, with at most a couple hundred vehicles driving around.

After breakfast, drive to Ngorongoro Conservation area with lunch boxes from the lodge. Descend down to the Crater floor for half-day game drive. Afternoon drive to Tarangire for overnight.
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area covers 2286 sq km and encompasses the volcanic area around the Ngorongoro Crater - including the still active volcano of Oldonyo Lengai and the famous Olduvai Gorge. Its center piece, the Ngorongoro Crater, is the largest unbroken caldera in the world and the first sight of it is breathtaking. The floor of the crater is only 100 sq miles but is home to around 30,000 animals with a high concentration of predators.
The crater supports up to 25,000 large mammals. Grazers dominate zebra, wildebeest - accounting for almost half the animals - gazelle, buffalo, eland, hartebeest and wart hog. Giraffe, for example, stay away because there is insufficient food at tree level; topi because they compete directly with wildebeest. An odd feature of the crater elephants is that they are almost exclusively bulls. Breeding herds - comprising large numbers of females and young with a few attendant older males - are probably unable to find sufficient quality food in the crater.
From the elegant wooden central platform where the Lake Burunge Tented Lodge restaurant stands it’s possible to watch the Lakeshore waiting for animals that come to drink water.
Because the camp is strategically located in the natural corridor between Manyara and Tarangire so the spectacle of the migration it’s guaranteed. The camp is located 10 minutes from the entrance of the park known as Sangaiwe.
This camp is the perfect place to relax in comfort after a day of game drives in Tarangire simply away by breeze and the colours of the African sunset from private terrace.

Morning and Afternoon game drives. Drive back to Moshi/ Arusha.
Tarangire National Park derives its name from the Tarangire River that rises in the highlands of central Tanzania and winds its way through the game sanctuary. The river irresistibly lures the herds of plains migrants from the parched surrounding area to its shrunken - but permanent - brackish waters during the dry season.
The animals come by thousands from as far north as the shores of Lake Natron, dramatically swelling the resident population with wildebeest, zebra, and eland, elephant, hartebeest, buffalo and fringe-eared Oryx. As the rainless days continue the Tarangire’s pools are clotted with thirsty migrants, and elephants begin to dig for underground streams in the dry riverbed.
