Travel to Tanzania and enjoy a luxury treatment wherein you will enjoy a classic safari experience in the Northern Circuit. With Euphoria Safaris' experienced group of professional safari guides equipped with comfortable and sturdy safari jeeps, you will go through the most unique and utmost exquisite experience of your lifetime.
During this safari, you will be staying in the following accommodations:
You will be collected from the airport or hotel (depending on your flight schedule). Accommodation before the tour departs can be arranged for an extra cost.
An epic start for your travel to Tanzania awaits you! Your driver guide will be at your hotel in Arusha or at the airport for early arrivals. You will head to Tarangire National Park, a park well known for its large elephant herds.
From the open roof of the vehicle, you will experience breath taking wildlife and nature’s gifts. After an extensive game drive, having experienced all that, you will leave the park and drive to the lodge for dinner and an overnight stay.
After breakfast, you will continue towards the fertile highlands where wheat, coffee, and corn are grown by the Iraqw people. Serengeti National Park, among other outstanding wildlife and stunning views, is famed for the annual migration of over 1.5 million wildebeest and hundred thousands of zebras, a magnificent animal show searching for fertile lands mating happening from July to October.
Witness an actual struggle for survival of the fittest as these animals pass through crocodile-infested waters, a memorable event for your travel to Tanzania. After an extensive game drive, you will drive to the Seronera Valley for an evening meal and overnight stay.
The entire day is set aside for more game drives in the Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti is the habitat for an abundance of wildlife, such as impalas, buffalo, crocodiles and hippos. The migration’s animals’ trek is determined by the rainfall and varies from year to year.
In November and December, the animals move from the northern region, dominated by woodlands and hills, to the grassy plains of the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June, they return to the north.
A travel to Tanzania without witnessing the Serengeti feels unsatisfying, hence after an unforgettable day you will return to your lodge for relaxation, dinner, and an overnight stay.
After an early breakfast, you will head out for another game drive in the Serengeti. You might be able to spot the “Big Five” - lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard - before embarking on your journey to the Ngorongoro Crater. The animals roam freely through the unfenced reserves offering you an uninterrupted game viewing experience.
Early risers are rewarded with breath-taking views of the rising sun over the crater’s edge and after a hearty breakfast you will drive down the adventurous track into the crater. This UNESCO world heritage site, formed millions of years ago, is 610 meters deep and covers roughly around 260 square kilometers.
An epic activity along Ngorongoro about the “cradle of mankind” will be part of your travel to Tanzania, where you will visit the Olduvai Gorge - an archaeological excavation site and museum where fossils of ‘Early East Africa Man’ were discovered by the Leakey family.
After breakfast, you will drive to your final destination of this epic travel to Tanzania, the Lake Manyara National Park. This is a relatively small but diverse park, 120 kilometers west of Arusha. The park’s namesake is a shallow, salt lake. It covers a large area of the park, flooding and drying with the seasons and is home to thousands of flamingos and over 500 other bird species.
On your exploration of the park you will see monkeys, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, elephant, and with some luck, lions lounging in the trees. The park is known for its diverse landscapes; not only open grassy plains, but also primate-filled woodlands and baobab dotted cliffs. After another memorable game drive, you will return to Arusha in the late afternoon.
This safari tour will take you from Arusha to Tarangire National Park, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Lake Manyara National Park in Tanzania.
The fierce sun sucks the moisture from the landscape, baking the earth a dusty red, the withered grass as brittle as straw. The Tarangire River has shrivelled to a shadow of its wet season self. But it is choked with wildlife. Thirsty nomads have wandered hundreds of parched kilometers knowing that here, always, there is water.
Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest, and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It’s the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem - a smorgasbord for predators - and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed.
During the rainy season, the seasonal visitors scatter over a 20,000 square kilometers (12,500 square miles) range until they exhaust the green plains and the river calls once more. But Tarangire’s mobs of elephant are easily encountered, wet or dry.
The swamps, tinged green year round, are the focus for 550 bird varieties, the most breeding species in one habitat anywhere in the world. On drier ground you find the Kori bustard, the heaviest flying bird; the stocking-thighed ostrich, the world’s largest bird; and small parties of ground hornbills blustering like turkeys.
More ardent bird-lovers might keep an eye open for screeching flocks of the dazzlingly colourful yellow-collared lovebird, and the somewhat drabber rufous-tailed weaver and ashy starling – all endemic to the dry savannah of north-central Tanzania.
Disused termite mounds are often frequented by colonies of the endearing dwarf mongoose, and pairs of red-and-yellow barbet, which draw attention to themselves by their loud, clockwork-like duetting. Tarangire’s pythons climb trees, as do its lions and leopards, lounging in the branches where the fruit of the sausage tree disguises the twitch of a tail.
The Serengeti is Africa’s most famous park. Renowned for its incredible concentrations of predators and the Great Migration of two million wildebeest, the Serengeti guarantees an exceptional safari.
The endless grassy plains (Serengeti in Maasai) are the richest grazing grounds on the continent, and therefore home to the largest herds and the highest concentrations of predators on the planet.
To focus solely on the Great Migration would be to do the Serengeti a grave injustice. Even taking the Great Migration out of the equation, it can be argued that the Serengeti is nevertheless the finest park in Africa.
Vast herds of grazers, huge prides of lion, spectacular expanses of uninterrupted views, wildebeest river crossings, great leopard sightings, good concentrations of cheetah and some of the best camps in Africa - what more could you want!
The Serengeti is one of those very rare places that has a huge reputation, yet still somehow manages to surpass expectations and take your breath away. Surrounded by remarkable tribes such as the Masai and Hadzabe, this wider area is also fascinating from a cultural perspective.
In a nutshell, the Serengeti is the mother of all safari parks and the most celebrated wildlife reserve in the world. There is absolutely nowhere else to match it. Absolutely outstanding!
Ngorongoro Crater, named as UNESCO World Heritage Site, formed millions of years ago, is 610 meters deep and covers roughly around 260 square kilometers. Due to its dense animal population of approximately 25,000, the crater offers the best game viewing of all the parks in Tanzania.
In matter of minutes you will be able to see wildebeest, zebras, gazelles, elephants and some of the more than 500 bird species in the area. With a little bit of luck, you might catch a glimpse of the endangered black rhino through the grass.
The Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtakingly beautiful setting and the best place in Tanzania to see the Big Five. However, as one of the world’s most astonishing and renowned natural wonders, the Ngorongoro Crater does get busy, and at times very busy.
The animals roam freely through the unfenced reserves offering you an uninterrupted game viewing experience. Arriving at the edge of the crater, you will have your first glimpse of glistening streams, open grassland and an infinite number of animals.
Any trip to Northern Tanzania has to include the Ngorongoro Crater: it is one of the most beautiful natural wildlife safari sites in the world and an exceptional place to interact with people from the Masaai tribe.
The Ngorongoro Crater and surrounding highlands together form one of Africa’s most beautiful regions. Volcanic craters form stunning backdrops to some of the most fertile and richest grazing grounds in Africa.
The most famous such crater is without question the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and home to the highest density of big game in Africa, including all the big five and plenty of predators. The Ngorongoro is justifiably one of the continent’s most famous safari destinations.
Lake Manyara National Park stretches for 50 kilometers along the base of the rusty-gold 600-metre high Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara is a scenic gem, with a setting extolled by Ernest Hemingway as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”.
Back in 1933 and 1934, the Nobel Prize winner and his wife Pauline had a three-month African trip in Tanzania. Part of their safari experience happened when they did set up a camp amid fig trees and giant mahogany forests on the banks of Lake Manyara, 30 kilometers south of the Ngorongoro Crater, and they did track a “kudu”, in Tarangire National Park they tracked a local antelope.
Most of his recognized works on this three-month safari, were this two books: The Green Hills of Africa, a nonfiction book published in 1935, and The Snows of Kilimanjaro, a short story that came out in part of 1936. As he later wrote in "True at First Light", a fictionalized account of his experiences: “I never knew of a morning in Africa when I woke up that I was not happy.”
The compact and scenic game-viewing circuit through Lake Manyara offers a virtual microcosm of the Tanzanian safari experience. From the entrance gate, the road winds through an expanse of lush jungle-like groundwater forest where hundred-strong baboon troops lounge along the roadside, blue monkeys dashing between the ancient mahogany trees, and outsized forest hornbills honk cacophonous in the high canopy.
Contrasting with the intimacy of the forest is the grassy floodplain and its expansive views eastward, across the alkaline lake, to the jagged blue volcanic peaks that rise from the endless Maasai Steppes. Large buffalo, wildebeest and zebra herds congregate on these grassy plains, as do giraffes - some so dark in coloration that they appear to be black from a distance.
Inland of the floodplain, a narrow belt of acacia woodland is the favoured haunt of Lake Manyara’s legendary tree-climbing lions and impressively tusked elephants. Squadrons of banded mongoose dart between the acacias, while the diminutive Kirk’s dik-dik forages in their shade. Pairs of klipspringer are often seen silhouetted on the rocks above a field of searing hot springs that steams and bubbles adjacent to the lakeshore in the far south of the park.
Lake Manyara provides the perfect introduction to Tanzania’s birdlife. More than 400 species have been recorded, and even a first-time visitor to Africa might reasonably expect to observe 100 of these in one day. Highlights include thousands of pink-hued flamingos on their perpetual migration, as well as other large waterbirds such as pelicans, cormorants and storks.
You will be provided with daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner during this safari. 1.5 liters of mineral water will also be provided daily during the game drives. Sodas will be at the vehicle's fridge. The lodges host bars and exclusive restaurants where you will get your favorable drinks.
