Our day trip to Mandara Hut, which is the first camp on Marangu Route is a beautiful trek through lush jungle. The trek to the hut takes 3 to 4 hours and covers 8 kilometres with an 800 m elevation. Have lunch at the hut and enjoy the beautiful scenery before heading back down to the vehicles and to the hotel for dinner.
After breakfast, we drive into Tarangire National park for some very rewarding game drives. The park is dotted with majestic Baobabs and unusual large Elephant populations up to six thousand in these familial pachyderms. Spend the day with a full menu of game viewing as you explore the Tarangire riverine thickets, grassy acacia woodlands and stands of ancient baobabs. You will see numerous wildebeest and zebra as well as giraffe, buffalo and other small to large antelopes. The birding is outstanding to watch as well.
Today after breakfast we leave in the morning and drive to Lake Manyara National Park. Despite the parks small size, the parks vegetation is diverse, ranging from savanna to marshes and Acacia woodland, enabling it to support a remarkable variety of habitat. In additional to a striking setting and peaceful surroundings, Lake Manyara’s main attractions are its superb birdlife, its tree climbing Lions and its Hippos, which you can observe at a closer range here than at most places (nowadays it’s a game of chance due to climatic change and human activities around the park). Lake Manyara has also the Hot Spring formed due to the penetration of water from highlands to the Earth Cracks which are caused by the tectonic forces under the Earth. To the east of the park is the alkaline lake Manyara which at certain times of the year hosts tens of thousands of Flamingoes as well as a diversity of other bird’s life. You will leave the park in the evening heading to the campsite.
After breakfast, we drive through the highlands of Ngorongoro heading to the border between Serengeti and Ngorongoro.
