A unique opportunity to explore two different parks all while based in one place. The Bougainvillea Safari lodge is set in beautiful tropical gardens with easy access to two of Tanzania's great parks.

Explore the Lake Manyara National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater in three days the perfect safari extension or mini break.


Day 1 - Bougainvillea Safari Lodge Meals: L D
On arrival at the Kilimanjaro International Airport you will make your own way to Arusha, Tanzania’s Safari capital. Here you will meet your driver guide and a representative from Albatros Travel. After a short safari briefing you will be transferred to the Bougainvillea Safari Lodge. Set in lush tropical gardens and a short drive from both parks the Lodge is the perfect place to base yourself for the next three nights. After checking in you can relax by the pool or perhaps treat yourself to a massage before dinner.
