For those short on time, this safari is the perfect way to see the best of Tanzania’s wildlife in just 2 days. The Ngorongoro Crater is a “must-see” destination, home to over 25,000 animals and your best chance of seeing the “Big Five”. Enjoy the spectacular scenery of Tarangire National Park, where families of elephants congregate year-round by the Tarangire River. You will have exclusive use of a Kandoo Adventures 4×4 safari vehicle and an expert guide who will show you the best locations to spot the wildlife.
You’ll need to organize your own flights to Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). From JRO we will arrange a private transfer to your hotel in Arusha. That night or early the next morning you will meet your local Kandoo representative and have a full briefing.
You will be met by your private guide and vehicle and driven to Tarangire National Park, arriving with plenty of time for an afternoon game drive.
The Tarangire River runs through the park attracting a huge number of elephants, buffalo, giraffes and antelope. It is not uncommon to see large herds of elephants roaming through Tarangire’s savannah grasses or taking shade under the odd-looking “upside-down trees” (baobab) that are dotted around the park. The park also boasts over 550 different bird species, the most diverse in Africa, including the Kori Bustard, the heaviest flying bird in the World!

After an early breakfast, you will drive to the fascinating wildlife arena of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a “must-see” safari destination. Home to more than 25,000 large mammals – it is not unusual to see all of the ‘Big Five’ (buffalo, elephant, rhino, lion and leopard) in a single day. The crater, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is over 260km2 (100 miles2) and was formed when a massive volcano exploded and collapsed on itself 2 – 3 million years ago. It is now the largest intact volcanic caldera in the world and often referred to as “Africa’s Eden”. Driving through the Ngorongoro Highlands, you will arrive at the crater rim and then descend down 610m (2000 feet) onto its’ floor to start your safari extravaganza. Late afternoon you will start your journey back to your hotel in Arusha or Kilimanjaro Airport.
