2 Day Tanzania Camping Safari to Tarangire and Ngorongoro
This 2-day Tanzania camping safari brings you to the Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania's most famous UNESCO world heritage site, 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 accommodations set up at Karatu (just outside the Ngorongoro Conservation), you can have a very rewarding safari in Tanzania in just two days and one night at one of the many campsites in the Karatu area, or even the Mto wa Mbu and Lake Manyara area, which is actually midway between the two wildlife areas.
Due to time constraints and budget one may want to take a short 2 days safari Tanzania, which made us come up with a range of 2 days / 1-night safari packages in the most interesting Tanzania safari parks. This two-day Tanzania safari is one of the greatest short safaris in Tanzania because it gives you such a large opportunity to view as much wildlife as possible, and believe it or not, you have a unique possibility to see the Big Five in such a short time.
2 Day Tanzania Camping Safari to Tarangire and Ngorongoro itinerary
