2 Days Camping Safari in Tanzania ,Tarangire, and Ngorongoro Crater

Trip Highlights

These two-day Tanzania camping safaris will take you to Tanzania's most renowned UNESCO world heritage site, the Ngorongoro Crater, as well as Tarangire National Park, a world-famous safari park known for its distinctive elephant herds. The park and the Ngorongoro Crater are not far apart, and with a variety of lodgings built up at Karatu (just outside the Ngorongoro Conservation), you can have a very fulfilling safari in Tanzania in only two days and one night at one of the several campsites in the Karatu region, or even the Mto wa Mbu and Lake Manyara area, which is really midway between the two wildlife areas.
