Location

This safari will take you through Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, Serengeti National Park, and Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania.

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire gets its name from the river that threads its way through the length of the reserve. It is famous for its dense wildlife population which is the most spectacular between the dry period.

During this time, thousands of animals - wildebeest, zebra, eland, elephant, hartbeest, buffalo, and oryx migrate from the dry Maasai steppe to the Tarangire River looking for water. Lion, leopard, and other predators follow the herds. The national park is also famous for tree climbing pythons and abundant birdlife.

Lake Manyara National Park

Nestling at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara National Park is one of the most beautiful places in Africa. As you enter the gate, the park is dramatically marked off lush green vegetation consisting of tall trees off the ground and water forest which provides home for troops of baboons.

Further down, the forest opens up into woodlands, grassland, swamps and beyond, the soda lake itself where over 3500 species of birds including the lovely flamingoes, pelicans, sacred Ibis, grebe, and stork can be viewed, a bird watcher's paradise!

At the sourthern end of the park are the hot sulphur spings called Majimoto. The most famous spectacle in the park are the tree climbing lions which spend most of the day spread out along branches of Acacia trees.

Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti National Park is arguably the best known wildlife sanctuary in the world. ”Serengeti” means “Endless plains” in Maasai language and within its boundaries are more than three millions large mammals. About 35 species of plain’s animals can be seen here including the Big Five (elephant, rhino lion, leopard, and buffalo).

Various types of vegetation such as grassy plains, savannah with acacias, wooded hills, and mountains are the backdrop for an extraordinary concentration of animals which reaches its peak during the famous wildebeest migration. Almost one and a half million wildebeest undertake a circuit of about 1000 kilometers, searching for new pastures and watering holes.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Standing at 2286 meters above sea level, Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken caldera in the world. Land of the Maasai, of their cattle and of the fauna, this protected area is located in the Great Rift Valley, a gigantic fracture of the earth’s crust. Volcanoes, mountains, plains, lakes, forests, and archeological sites form this magnificent landscape.

At 1600 meters altitude, the bottom of the crater (265 square kilometers) dotted with watering-holes, shelters, and almost 30,000 animals, are naturally enclosed by the slopes of the volcano. It is such a captivating and breathtaking phenomenon. It is one of the wonders of the world.
