This 3 days safari in Tanzania starts and ends in Arusha town, the base town for all Tanzania safari tours in the Northern Tanzania safari circuit. The 3 days tour is a great package for all ages due to the short distances involved because all the 3 parks that you will visit are located not very far from one another. Starting and ending in Arusha the 3-day Tanzania safari takes you to the Ngorongoro Crater ( one of the two most famous wildlife parks in Tanzania).
