Day 1 Sunset over Lake Manyara

´This short walking safari begins with pick-up at Kilimanjaro / Arusha Airport. 2 hour transfer to Manyara area and check-in at Isoitok Manyara Camp.

A short but pleasant leg-stretching hike, about 1 hour, through the acacia landscape up to the lookout hill. Alongside you, the Maasai cows are walking on their way home to Boman. Up on the hill, refreshments are served while the sun sets over Lake Manyara in the distance.

Isoitok Manyara Camp
This special little camp with eight tents is located in a green acacia landscape. We like this camp because it enhances the nature experience that we enjoy so much. The camp blends into its natural surroundings and enhances the feeling of being in the middle of nature. In addition, they are strongly committed to sustainable travel and work close to the surrounding Maasai boom. When you walk here, you have the chance to see monkeys, elk and lots of different bird species. Especially good for bird watchers.

Day 2 Tarangire National Park

Coffee on the terrace to the chirping of birds while the camp wakes up. After breakfast 1 hour eventful drive to Tarangire National Park. Full day safari among lots of elephants, ungulates, zebras, wildebeest, birds, lions, monkeys. We eat lunch in nature with our packed lunch box and enjoy the tranquility. Maybe under one of the big baobab trees - it all depends on where the animals are for the day.

Tarangire has borrowed its name from the Tarangire River that flows through the park and is a popular haunt for the animals - of course. This makes it extra interesting to visit the park during June-November when the grass is low and the river is the largest water source. During this time, a large number of ungulates migrate into Tarangire. Tarangire National Parkis also known for its large number of elephants- the largest collection of elephants in Tanzania. Read about our safari to the elephants' Tarangire garden.

The landscape is varied with woodland, savannah, wetlands and rocky valleys. The classic acacia tree breaks up the landscape, but above all, the chubby babobab trees are ubiquitous.

You will return to Isoitok Manyara Camp for dinner

Day 3 Visit in the massage boom

Today you stay at Isoitok to get to know the Maasai culture and enjoy the surrounding nature. After early morning coffee on the terrace with accompanying birds chirping, Ruben will come and pick you up. A short hike to the nearby Maasai tree. Here live 27 people- 1 husband / 4 wives / 22 children / 160 cows and a number of goats, sheep and chickens. An early visit means everyone is home and you get a good insight into the mass life. An authentic experience beyond the tourist scene. Read about our hike with Ruben to the Maasai Boman The rest of the day you plan together with Isoitok camp. Longer / shorter hike with insight into medicinal plants? Bird-watching? Depending on your interest and the mood for the day, you decide together what will be best.

You eat lunch in the camp and you will long for the tasty 3-course dinner. If you are a vegetarian, you are lucky - their chef makes magical vegetarian dishes.

Day 4 Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park is located right next to the road between Arusha and the Ngorongoro Nature Reserve and is a natural stop on a safari in northern Tanzania. Lake Manyara is located along the gigantic fault rift Great Rift Valley, which was formed 20 million years ago and which stretches 6,400 km from the Dead Sea to the Kalahari Desert in Botswana. It has an area of ​​330 km², of which 230 km² consists of the soda lake (unless a dry period prevails).

On our hiking safari Tanzania , Lake Manyara is one of the parks you visit. Check-in to the park takes place from the small rural town of Mto wa Mbu (the name means "mosquito river") which is surrounded by a fertile agricultural district with large orchards.

400 bird species

Lake Manyara National Parkis very beautiful with wooded hilly terrain along the Great Rift Valley and vast beach meadows towards the worthwhile bird lake. Around Lake Manyara's soda lake, no less than about 400 bird species have been observed. During certain periods of the year, the lake is invaded by pink shimmering smaller flamingos in the thousands.

Animals in Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara is said to have more elephants per square kilometer than any other park in Africa and is also known for its tree-climbing lions - but these observations are unfortunately rare after all. For bird watchers, Lake Manyara is a must! During a car safari in Lake Manyara, it is possible to see e.g. elephant, zebra, hippopotamus, African buffalo, wildebeest, warthog, turtles, baboon and giraffe.

Best time

The best time to visit Lake Manyara is during the dry season, ie during the periods June – October, and January – February.
