This 3 days Tanzania elephant safari takes you to Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park & the ivory orphans in Tanzania.
This 3 days Tarangire and Lake Manyara safari takes you to the northern part of Tanzania – a perfect region to encounter wildlife and have a safari.
Tanzania has some of the largest elephants in the world. These can be found in Tarangire National Park.
The current Tanzania elephant population stands at 60,000. If it wasn’t for poaching in Tanzania, it would be much higher than this. Elephant poaching in Tanzania led to a huge decrease of the Tanzania elephant population.
Lake Manyara National Park is one of the most visited national parks in the country, vastly occupied by Lake Manyara, in addition to a variety of mammals like the tree-climbing lions – only found in only two parks including Queen Elizabeth national park in Uganda.
Tarangire National Park is conquered by the beauty of the landscape and a large concentration of herds of elephants, and several other mammals and birds such as the flamingos.
You will do game drives, photography and bird watching in this non-stop adventure. Pickup and drop off point will be at Arusha, Tanzania.
