Program

Immerse yourself in the quest for the Big Five and witness the awe-inspiring spectacle of the Great Migration, a natural phenomenon that unfolds in the Serengeti. Thousands of wildebeest, zebras, and other ungulates move across the plains in search of greener pastures. Consequently, the spectacle of crossing rivers and open landscapes is a wildlife enthusiast’s dream come true. Thousands of wildebeest, zebras, and other ungulates move across the plains in search of greener pastures, followed by predators like lions, cheetahs, and leopards. Let go and spot them.

Then look for herds of wildebeest, zebras, gazelles, and hopefully a rhino, and witness predators in action at Ngorongoro Crater. Early morning, eSafari Africa pick you up at your accommodation in Arusha and drive you to Serengeti National Park, partly game viewing en route. Traverse the expansive plains, keeping a keen eye out for the iconic Big Five; lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhinoceros. Marvel at the untamed beauty of the Serengeti as the day unfolds. Then, the next day, dive deeper into the Serengeti, exploring its diverse ecosystems and encountering a myriad of wildlife.

Your expert guide will navigate the vast grasslands, acacia-dotted savannas, and winding rivers, increasing your chances of witnessing the thrilling moments of predator-prey interactions. On the fourth day, you will descend into the Ngorongoro Crater, a natural amphitheater teeming with wildlife. Encounter herds of wildebeest, zebras, gazelles, and hopefully a rhino and witness predators in action. The Ngorongoro Crater offers a unique microcosm of African wildlife in a stunning setting. The spoken language is English. German and French are only available for private groups. Dutch translator on demand and at an extra fee.

Location

The safari will take place in Tanzania.

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park is located in Tanzania and is part of the larger Serengeti ecosystem which covers 12,000 square miles (30,000 square kilometers) and includes several other game reserves. The national park itself covers an area of 5,700 square miles (14,750 square kilometers). It is a GANP Ambassador Park and runs contiguously with the Masai Mara in Kenya. The name Serengeti is derived from a similar Masai word which translates, to “the place where land runs on forever.” It is also affectionately known as the “endless plains.”

The area is comprised of grassland plains, savanna, riverine forest, and woodlands. Although the majority of the park is open plains, the elevation does vary from 3,000 to 6,000 feet (914 to 1,828 meters). The lofty rock croppings spawn visions of the movie "Lion King," and you may even see lions on them. The Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Mount Kilimanjaro are almost inseparable when it comes to traveling to Tanzania. Visitors will almost always experience the three of these together. Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti share the migrating wildebeest, zebra, and impala herds.

In general, the park is often described as three regions with boundaries of the national park. The primary area is the Serengeti plains, where the wildebeest breeds. A second area is a western corridor featuring black clay-covered savannahs. This area is home to crocodiles and hippopotamuses. The hippo pool located near this region is a guaranteed place to see hippos sleeping and wallering around. The third area is the northern Serengeti which is where the majority of hills and woodlands occur. This is the best place to find an elephant and a giraffe.

The Serengeti National Park is globally renowned for its abundance and variety of wildlife as well as high biodiversity. The Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo) can all be experienced in the park. Except for the mountain gorilla, all of Africa’s Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, hippo, and crocodile) can be found in the national park. Predators beyond the lion and leopard include cheetahs, hyenas, jackals, African golden wolves, honey badgers, servals, and the African wild dog. Because the park landscape is so open, there is a fair chance that you will see most of the predator species.

Keep your eyes open for gathered safari vehicles; you can almost guarantee if there are more than three gathered together, they are looking at lions or leopards. The largest remaining unaltered mammalian migration in the world is the pinnacle wildlife experience of the Serengeti. The migration features over 1.3 million wildebeest, 250,000 zebra, 500,000 gazelles, and tens of thousands of topi, hartebeest, and impala. This statistic is one of the main reasons the migration was selected as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area spans vast expanses of highland plains, savanna, savanna woodlands, and forests. Established in 1959 as a multiple land use area, with wildlife coexisting with semi-nomadic Maasai pastoralists practicing traditional livestock grazing, it includes the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest caldera.

The property has global importance for biodiversity conservation due to the presence of globally threatened species, the density of wildlife inhabiting the area, and the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra, gazelles, and other animals into the northern plains. Extensive archaeological research has also yielded a long sequence of evidence of human evolution and human-environment dynamics, including early hominid footprints dating back 3.6 million years.
