Location

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

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is located on the Northeastern part of Tanzania and it’s somehow closer to the Ngorongoro Crater. It’s also closer to Lake Manyara which is also part of the ecosystem for the Tarangire National Park.

One of the most noticeable things on entering the park are the baobab trees that rise up form the grass. With their massive trunks, they are instantly recognizable. There are animals that usually move northwards of the park during the wet season including the wildebeests, zebras, Thompson’s gazelles, buffalos, elands, and hartebeests. The elephant population in this park was estimated to be around 6,000 in 1987, but numbers are believed to have fallen since then due to poaching.

The number of birds recorded in Tarangire National Park has been estimated at approximately 300. These include migrants that fly south to spend October to April away from the winter of the northern hemisphere. Here, you may spot various species of herons, storks and ducks, vultures, buzzards, sparrowhawks, eagles, kites, and falcons, as well as ostriches.

Other areas of interest within the park include the Lake Burungi Circuit, the Lemiyon area, the Kitibong Hill Circuit, and the Gursi and Lamarkau Circuit. Also within the park is Babati (a small town approximately 170 kilometers southwest of Arusha on the road to Dodoma) and Mt. Hanang (ninth highest peak in Africa at 3,417 meters).

Serengeti National Park

The 14,763 square kilometer park is the second largest park in Tanzania after Selous National Park. The park is located near the Kenyan border besides Masai Mara National Reserve. In fact, the Serengeti National Park shares border with the Masai Mara National Reserve. Its location is on the Northeastern side of Tanzania.

Serengeti is perhaps most well known for the annual migration that takes place across the great Savannah plains. This is a phenomenal sight: thousands upon thousands of animals, particularly wildebeests, as far as the eye can see. During the rainy season (from November to May), the wildebeests, whose population has been estimated at around 1,500,000, are found in the eastern section of the Serengeti and also the Masai Mara in Kenya to the north.

When the dry season begins at the end of June, the annual migration commences as the animals move in search of food pasture. The Serengeti is also famous for cheetahs, leopards, and lions, some of which migrate with the wildebeests while others remain in the central plain.

The elephant population in Serengeti was decimated by poaching, estimated to have fallen fivefold during the 1970 to 1980's, since then, the numbers have slowly increased. Birdlife is prolific in the national park and includes various species of kingfishers, sunbirds, and rollers, ostriches, egrets, herons, storks, ibises, spoonbills and ducks.

Birds of prey include Ruppell’s vulture and the hooded vulture, several varieties of kestrels, eagles, goshawks and harriers. There is also a hippo pool by the name of Retina where you can have clear views of the hippopotamuses and even crocodiles.

Ngorongoro Consarvation Area

The conversation area encompasses Ngorongoro Crater, Embagai Crater, Olduvai Gorge - famous for its palaeontological relics - and Lake Masek. The crater is a home to small number of black rhinoceroses, sustains a huge population of ungulates and has the most concentrated numbers of lions know.

However, there are an estimated 30,000 animals living in the crater. Encounters with animals are frequent and there is a wide variety of game in the crater. These include lions, elephants, and rhinos as well as buffaloes, Thompson’s gazelles, wildebeests and zebras. You are also likely to see ostriches and Lake Magadi, the soda lake at the floor of the crater, is home to thousands of flamingos.

There are also dive-bombing kites which are recognized for their skills of snatching visitors’ foods at the Lerai forest, which is a good place for a picnic lunch. The area is close to the Serengeti, northeast of Tanzania. Lake Eyasi marks part of its southern boundary and the Serengeti National Park lies to the west.
