Location

In this safari, you will visit Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, Serengeti National Park, and Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Tarangire National Park

The national park is located in the north-eastern part of Tanzania and it’s somehow closer to the Ngorongoro Crater. It’s also close to Lake Manyara which is also a 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 from 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 6000 in 1987, but the 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.

Lake Manyara National Park

Set in the Great Rift Valley, Lake Manyara National Park is located near Ngorongoro Crater and the Arusha National Park in the north-eastern sides of Tanzania. The park is actually located in between Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area and Tarangire and Arusha National Parks. A major attraction of the Lake Manyara National Park is the tree-climbing lions. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that you will spot them. However, there are other things to see such as elephants, hippos, zebras, impalas, buffaloes, baboons, plains animals as well as huge variety of bird life, both resident and migratory.

At certain times of the year, Lake Manyara is home to thousands of flamingos attracted by the lake itself, which forms a shimmering pink zone around the lake shore. Other birds found here include ostriches, egrets, herons, pelicans, and storks. Also seen are African spoonbills, various species of ibises, ducks, and the rare pygmy geese. The most noticeable of the landscape within this park are the very impressive baobab trees with their huge trunks.

Serengeti National Park

In this park, you can see a million wildebeest. Each one is driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling its instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life. 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 Maasai Mara National Reserve. In fact, the Serengeti National Park shares a border with the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Its location is on the north-eastern 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 Maasai 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 1970 to 1980s, since then, the numbers have slowly increased. Birdlife is prolific in the national park and includes various species of kingfishers, sunbirds, 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 Conservation Area

The park 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. The conversation area encompasses Ngorongoro Crater, Embagai Crater, Olduvai Gorge that is famous for its palaeontological relics and Lake Masek. The crater is home to a 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, rhinos, 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 which is a 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.
