You spend the night in a lodge in this safari capital of Tanzania.
After breakfast in Arusha you drive to Lake Manyara National Park. The drive there takes about two hours.

Tomorrow morning you descend after breakfast for a safari in the Ngorongoro Crater; a world famous crater where you can spot the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) quite easily.
