After pick-up from your hotel in Moshi, spend today on a game drive in the Tarangire National Park. The park is known for its enormous herds of elephants, ancient baobab trees, and having the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti. During the dry season (June-Sept), animals flock from hundreds of miles to drink from the Tarangire River. Retire to the Kudu Lodge for dinner and an overnight.
Today you descend into the Ngorongoro Crater for a six hour tour. As the world’s largest caldera (nearly 100 square miles), Ngorongoro boasts over 20,000 large animals, including Tanzania’s remaining black rhino. Living along-side the abundance of wildlife you will find 40,000 Maasai pastoralists with their cattle, goats, and sheep. The conservation gives you a rare look into how people harmoniously lived with nature and wildlife in ancient times. Return to the lodge in time for dinner.
Today you will say goodbye to Tanzania, but not before doing one last game drive. Lake Manyara National Park plays host to your final game experience and with any luck you will spot one of the famous tree-climbing lions while you traverse this unique habitat. You will end your trip with a drop off back in Moshi, or at the Kilimanjaro Airport in time for your flight home.
