After stopping for a picnic lunch on a kopje (rock outcropping), it will be time to head further into the park to begin your game drive. You pass through green savannah where elephants and giraffes roam, through a stretch of territory that is rarely visited by travelers, to reach the central Serengeti. The name Serengeti comes from the Maasai word, “Siringet” referring to an endless plain.

As you traverse the park on the way, you will stop at the Olduvai Gorge, where anthropologists Louis and Mary Leakey made many significant discoveries, contributing to the theory that human life originated in Africa. En route, you will see grazing zebras, antelopes, and giraffes and sometimes some buffalos hiding in the bush.

As only very few of those migrate in and out of the crater with its 2000 feet high walls, you can expect to see lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, many birds, and other species. The crater is also home to the rare black rhino almost extinct in Tanzania. With a bit of luck, you will see the ‘Big Five’ during one game drive. Dinner and overnight at Marera Valley Lodge.

Location

For many Europeans and Americans, Africa is the most exotic continent in the world. It is also a little scary as there are so many stories in the media about war, violence, and Ebola. In the search of the ‘ideal travel destination’ in Africa, many tourists and travelers find Tanzania. The beautiful country is safe to travel in - the more than one hundred different tribes live peacefully together.

Even during the 2015 election, there hasn't been any much disturbance. This is one of the reasons to choose to travel to Tanzania. But there are many more. Tanzania is a land of contrasts; from the snow-capped park of Mt. Kilimanjaro to the endless plains of the Serengeti, from the sun-kissed islands of the Zanzibar Archipelago to the gentle shores of Lake Victoria.

It was there, on the dusty floor of Olduvai Gorge (30 kilometers from Ngorongoro Crater) that early man left his first footprints. It was also there, on the palm-fringed Zanzibar, that Swahili traders welcomed dhows and trading boats from across the Indian Ocean.

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti is the largest national park in Tanzania. It covers about 14,763 square kilometers at an altitude of 1,737 meters above sea level. Serengeti is true to its Maasai name “SIRINGET” meaning endless plains.

Serengeti is the home to countless numbers of animals such as lions, cheetahs, and leopards. You may also feast your eyes on herds of wildebeest, zebras, a variety of gazelles, impalas and other species of antelopes. Buffalos, hippos, elephants, and giraffes are among the other well-represented species. In addition, there are numerous smaller mammals and birds.

The famous migration of wildebeest and zebras with as many as 1.5 million individuals on the move can be seen between November and June.

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire is known for its beautiful landscape, giant herds of elephants and majestic Baobab trees in addition to its many species of birds.

Tarangire National park is the park with the highest concentration of elephants in the world. It is said that more than 3,000 elephants live there and it is guaranteed that you will see herds of them!

Ngorongoro Crater

In the middle of the Masai country, you find the Ngorongoro Crater. The crater is a must-see for every visitor in the northern part of Tanzania. It is a ‘mini world’ with savannah, forest savannah, rainforest and swamp areas – and very diverse animal life.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is quite simply the most spectacular tourist destination in Africa/ world-unequaled in its magnificence. It is a scenic beauty with its wildlife and its atmosphere. The scenery is spectacular, predators are abundant and it’s not unusual to see the Big 5 in a single day. You will see surprisingly many animals in a small area.

Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara is a good start when you are going to plan your safaris in Tanzania. Although small in size, it boasts a good concentration of animals and birds, suited to the parks several ecosystems. This is the park where you may even get a glimpse of a tree-climbing lion – the leopard. The park houses as many as 350 species of birds.

In Lake Manyara, you really feel that you are exploring. There are many different kinds of forests, and this makes it a little harder to have an overview. On the other hand, animals have good opportunities to hide a little better. But don’t be nervous: Your guide will find them for you anyway!
