What to do around here

      •   Game drive in tarangire national park - Each morning and afternoon, game drives can be arranged to visit Tarangire National Park. Tarangire National Park is known for its high density of elephants and large baobab trees. The Tarangire ecosystem is host to some of the long-distance migration of wildebeest and zebras from Serengeti and Masai Mara. The best time to visit the park is during the dry season from June to November when you can expect to see large herds zebras, wildebeests and buffalos. Other animals found here in large numbers include: waterbuck, giraffe, dik dik, impala, eland, grant's gazelle, vervet monkey, mongoose and olive baboon. Predators that you are likely to spot in Tarangire include lions, leopards, cheetah, caracal, honey badgers, dwarf mongoose and wild dogs. A white giraffe was spoted in this park in 2015.

      •   Fly camping - For those seeking a little more adventurous and even more private wildlife experience then a fly camping safari in an intimate fly camp set up exclusively for you in a spectacular bush location will be your solution. You will be accompanied by an armed guide and spend the afternoon walking to the fly camp. It is a comfortable yet solo set-up deep in the bush that offers you an opportunity to sleep under the stars and experience the wild side of Africa. This will be at an additional cost.

The crater sinks to a depth of 610 metres, with a base area covering 260 square kilometres. Ngorongoro also has two other volcanic craters: Olmoti and Empakai famous for their stunning waterfalls and a deep lake with lush green walls.

Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru. Lunch is served in picnic style surrounded by natural wonders as well as the exceptional wildlife roaming freely.
