Tanzania Great Migration Highlights

Besides Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, Serengeti, Olduvai Gorge and Ngorongoro Crater, this safari includes a day at the surreal soda Lake Natron. This lake is the only breeding area for 2.5 million lesser flamingoes that live in the valley because its caustic environment is a barrier against predators trying to reach their nests.

Location

Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti is one of the largest wildlife sanctuaries in the world covering an area of 14,763 square kilometers. The spectacular concentration of plain animals found nowhere in the worlds and the annual wildebeest migration.

Apart from the wildebeests and zebras, you can expect to see a large variety of animals; gazelles and hippos will be found there at any time of the year. Elephants will be frequently seen, but the population is migratory. The Serengeti predators made famous by many films and documentaries include lion, leopard, cheetah, and hyena.

The birds of the Serengeti are just as spectacular and varied as the animals. There are several types of eagles and vultures, ostrich, secretary birds, kori bustards, hornbills as well as a host of small birds. There are almost 500 species of birds recorded in the parks.

Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro Conservation Area (crater) is a world-famous geographic feature. It is technically called a “caldera”, which is a collapsed volcano. The floor covers an area of over 102 square miles which includes a soda lake and forms a perfectly preserved and self-contained habitat for a large number and variety of animal species such as elephants, buffaloes, hippos, and many other species can generally be seen here at any time of year.

Maasai tribesmen traditionally graze night, and they may be seen in their distinctive dress, tending to their herds of cattle. The animals are not trapped in the crater. There is some migratory movement, but because of the protected nature of the habitat and the availability of grazing and water, many of the animal population remains resident year around. This makes Ngorongoro ideal for game viewing. There are several feelings of pride of lions and some of the last surviving to be found in Tanzania.

The lodges and campsites are situated around the rim of the crater. This makes the clients view the crater all the time while in a lodge or campsite.

Lake Manyara National Park

This is one of the most popular and attractive wildlife sanctuaries in East Africa beneath the Great Rift Valley. It is home to baboons, blue monkeys, buffalo, giraffe, elephant, hippos and so many more. Over 300 species of birds are found here.

The park consists of 350 square kilometers, 120 square miles of land during the wet season but is nearly non-existent during the dry seasons. The park is also famous for the flamingos that habit the lake.

Tarangire National Park

One of the outstanding features of Tarangire is the vast number of enormous baobab trees. These giants also known as the upside-down tree, are a strange and beautiful sight in themselves. Tarangire is located in Manyara Region, the name of the park originated from the Tarangire river that crosses through the park, being the only source of water for the wild animal during the dry season.

During the dry season, thousands of animals migrate to the Tarangire National Park from Manyara. The park is very famous for its massive number of elephants, baobab trees and lions climbing trees.

Lake Natron

Lake Natron is located in northern Tanzania close to the Kenyan border in the eastern branch of African’s Great Rift Valley. This lake supports an expected 2.5 million birds as their only breeding ground. This spectacle is a sight to behold hundreds of thousands of fabulously pink head flamingos come to feed blue-green algae on the lake.

The size of the lake is about 260 square. The major attraction here is a salt lake, large flamingo populations, Oldoinyo Lengai, Engaruka rains, Engare Sero waterfalls.

Oldoinyo Lengai

Oldoinyo Lengai is an active volcano located in the north of Tanzania and is part of the volcano system of the great valley in Eastern Africa. It is located in the Eastern Rift Valley south of both Lake Natron and Kenya. The Oldoinyo Lengai size is about 2,960 meters (9,711 feet).
