Home to some of the world's most incredible scenery and wildlife, a Tanzania National Parks tour should be at the top of every adventurers bucket list!

Over the course of 4 days, we will see as much of this incredible landscape as we can, heading to the serengeti, an incredible crater and a lake teeming with wildlife.

As we go, expect to see the famed Big Five – lions, African elephants, Cape buffalos, leopards, and rhinoceros – along with many other species across the three parks and reserves that we will visit!

The fun begins after we meet in Arusha and drive to Lake Manyara National Park. We'll head on our first game drive here, passing through a lush acacia forest with giant fig and mahogany trees.

With the backdrop of the lake, we will hopefully get to see baboons, blue monkeys, giraffes, buffaloes, elephants and impalas.

From Lake Manyara, we continue on to Serengeti National Park. In the local language, serengeti means "endless plains", an apt description considering the park covers 18,000 square kilometers (6,900 sq. miles).

As we go on various game drives across this incredible landscape, we'll get the chance to see zebras, wildebeest, antelope, lions, cheetahs, leopards and hyenas, among many others.

Following our visit to Serengeti National Park, we will continue on to Ngorongoro reserve, the eight wonder of the natural world.

We will descend into the massive crater, which sprawls over 264 square kilometers (102 sq miles) and boasts walls that are 600 meters high (2,000 feet). Here, we will drive through the varied landscapes and see virtually all the wildlife native to East Africa! It's truly an unforgettable experience.

Sadly, this is when our trip comes to an end. We return to Arusha the following day from Ngorongoro reserve.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this incredibly unique and scenic 4-day tour of the Tanzanian national parks!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
