Safari Tanzania 3 days
Life is too short to be able to discover the whole world, but seeing it in a hurry is perhaps not the best choice; despite the fact that we understand the need for travelers to find quick solutions to discover as much as possible in a few days, we can even say it is not always the best choice. In this article we want to tell you what you can see during a safari in Tanzania in 3 days.
Alternating the beauty of the coastal areas like those of Zanzibar and a safari can be a great idea; but having only a week of holiday, can be a very little time spent on an experience in nature. So, what to see in just 3 days? Here are some ideas.
Safari in 3 days in Tanzania: what to see
Although our advice is to dedicate at least 5 days as in the Asante Sana safari program, we want to provide you with some alternative of just three days to discover, at least in part, the most authentic heart of Tanzania.
In three days you could discover Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro area. On your first day, you can visit the lake, discover the 11 different ecosystems and see flamingos and pelicans up close, but also eagles and herons. You can then reserve the next two days to Ngorongoro: first by visiting the crater with its many ecosystems; discovering lakes and salt marshes here but also savannah and spending the rest of your time looking for the animals that live there. You could spot flamingos, wildebeests and zebras, but also lions, hyenas and elephants.
Using Serengeti as a starting point, you could on a 3-day safari to Tanzania visit this incredible UNESCO heritage in search of the Big Five in two days and close your tour with a stop at Lake Natron: a very particular basin known for its particular ph able to petrify the animals; the only immune ones are the flamingos of which you can see a very vast community.
Another option? You can spend three days discovering firstly Ngorongoro and then Serengeti. Once again, you’ll start from the crater and the many ecosystems that you can here discover, seeing many animals up close and then spend two days at the UNESCO World Heritage Site to see up close the so-called “big five”. Alternatively, you could spend two days at Serengeti and finish the tour by visiting Tarangire.
How many days are recommended for a safari in Tanzania
If you are asking yourself how many days are recommended for a safari in Tanzania we must give you bad news: these are not the 3 days you were thinking about but at least 6. Considering the trips and the many things to see, it would be a shame to waste such a long trip leaving important points behind.
On the other hand, we also understand how nice it is to discover the area of Zanzibar with some of the most beautiful beaches; the island certainly has its attractions and thanks to the possibility of diving and snorkeling should certainly not be left aside. However, if you can’t get at least 10 days off, you’ll have to compromise.
The best idea that we can suggest is to avoid DIY and turn to industry experts who deal with safaris asking if there are shorter tours or if there’s a way to join only part of the tour. Another option would be to request a private safari so that both the stages and the experience are 100% tailored to your needs. Keep in mind that the latter option will be slightly more expensive. If you’ve reconsidered, you can take a look at our safaris to see some slightly longer options starting from 5 days that might get your attention.
