Serengeti National Park

Serengeti is Tanzania's most popular national park - a world heritage site and one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Africa. The Serengeti is famed for its annual migration when hundreds of thousands of zebra and Thomson’s gazelle join more than 1 million wildebeest on their trek for fresh grazing. Yet, even when the migration is quiet, Serengeti National Park offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa teeming with wildlife including great herds of buffalo, groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala, and Grant’s gazelle as well as a vast population of birds.

The spectacle of predator versus prey dominates Tanzania’s greatest park boasting the largest lion population in Africa. Lion pride feasts on the abundance of plain grazers while solitary leopards haunt the acacia trees lining Seronera River and a high density of cheetahs prowl the South Eastern plains. This place is home to millions of wildebeest during the migration and over the huge flat plains. Furthermore, you are likely to find lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, and many other small predators.

Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro Crater is unique in that almost all the wildlife lives within the crater walls. Hence, you have the opportunity to find the game easily. Rhino, in particular, can be seen regularly as well as a pride of lion and other predators like cheetahs. Ngorongoro Crater is the best place in Tanzania to see the “Big Five” due to the shape and size of this incredible natural landscape. This crater is the world’s largest inactive volcano caldera and its beauty is awe-inspiring.

A healthy population of black rhino and some of the largest tusker elephants left in Africa today are highlights. Moreover, Ngorongoro Crater becomes home to strong populations of lions, leopards, and hyenas along with good herds of non-migrating wildebeests, buffalos, and zebras. Other games at Ngorongoro Crater include serval cats, cheetahs, jackals, Grant's and Thompson's gazelles, flamingos, and bat-eared foxes along with approximately 400 species of birds.

During this safari, you will be provided with daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Also, you will have private a picnic lunch by the hippo pond at Ngorongoro Crater. Meals are extremely good quality, using fresh and local produce. African Scenic Safaris caters for any meal requirement such as western style food. However, you can advise if you would like to try some local dishes. Breakfasts are likely to be toast, eggs, sausage, pancakes, and fruit.

Lunch is freshly made lunch boxes in which you will eat en-route or a cooked lunch if at the campsite. Dinner normally starts with soup followed by a main course like chicken and rice, fish, pasta, vegetarian stew, etc. followed by fruit for dessert. African Scenic Safaris is commonly asked for recipes after safari which they can happily provide.

    "African Scenic Safaris is small and local. They should be your choice for a safari. Amanda was beyond responsive to our questions, quickly, and thoroughly answering all our questions. She also helped us plan a superb northern circuit trip. Our guide / driver, Tom, was incredible. Thoroughly an expert at the parks and more importantly in animal behavior, Tom could uncannily predict animal movements and behavior along with providing us the reasons. He made our trip into something incredible. Our review echoes many others out there if you are overwhelmed by choices and there are many options for you to go with African Scenic. Their operation is one that you can trust to build the trip you want and then you can watch it exceed your expectations."

    "African Scenic Safaris is the best. From the first moment I arrived in Tanzania, I knew I had made the right choice. Amanda and Simbo organized a perfect climb up Kilimanjaro and safari. The porters were all very friendly, happy, and eager to get us to the top of Kilimanjaro. Our guides were friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. It is clear that everyone is very well-treated by African Scenic Safaris. It is shown in their attitude and eagerness. Moreover, all proceeds go towards supporting a local orphanage. Book with them and you won't regret it!"
