Location

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti means "endless plains" in Maasai language. In the central plains there are carnivores like leopard, lion, hyena, and cheetah. This park is normally the scene of the annual migration of wildebeest and zebra that occurs between the Kenyan Mara and the Serengeti. Varied bird species can be seen here including eagles, ducks, geese, egrets, vultures, secretary birds, ibis, stork, herons, kites, pelicans, cranes and guinea fowl.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

The Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area is located between the Serengeti and Lake Manyara. It is home to the famous Ngorongoro Crater which is the largest unbroken caldera in the world. The crater is a spectacular setting in which to experience your African safari. Some scientists maintain that before it erupted, Ngorongoro Crater used to be higher than Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest point in Africa. It is one of the few places in Africa where you stand a very good chance of seeing the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino, and elephant) in the course of a game drive.

The local Maasai have permission to graze their cattle on the crater floor, and it is not unusual to see Maasai cattle and buffalo grazing together with lion mere meters away. There are around 1000 lions in the crater, approximately 20 black rhino, and the spectacular Lerai Forest is one of the best places in Africa to spot leopard.
