4 Days Tanzania Safari: Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangeri

4 Days Tanzania Safari – You just have to see and experience Ngorongoro with your own eyes! Its crater is five times more sensational than it looks on screen. For lack of a befitting description, it is a 30km diameter rock bowl which is about 600m deep and endowed with volcanic soil.

This has facilitated the growth of nutrient-filled grass thereby attracting just about every African animal. Its lake is full of pink flamingos. 4 Days Tanzania Safari

Your next destination is Tarangire. It is not as vast as the Serengeti, but it delivers a similar vibe and a
huge number of animals: droves of wildebeests, gazelles, zebras, and giraffes.

If it’s your lucky day, you might even spot cheetahs celebrating a successful hunt. There are lots of different types of trees, including huge baobabs. You will love the changing scenery and see loads of unique different tree species, inclusive of baobabs. 4 Days Tanzania Safari
