This safari will take place at Arusha, Tarangire National Park, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania.
Often called the eighth natural wonder of the world, the Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact crater in the world. About two million years ago, the Ngorongoro volcano erupted and its walls collapsed. The volcano floor sank to create a natural enclosure with its 600 meters tall walls. Now, at over 19 kilometers wide, Ngorongoro Crater is filled with great areas of acacia forest, hippo filled swamp, and open grasslands.
These different habitats contain over 30,000 animals including elephants, warthogs, flamingos, magnificent birdlife, rare black rhinoceros, and predatory cats. The Maasai can also be seen grazing their cattle alongside the buffalo and wildebeest.
The Serengeti National Park is the world's last great wildlife refuge as it contains an estimated three million large animals, most of which take part in a seasonal migration that is one of nature's wonders. The area covers 14,763 square kilometers. The name Serengeti comes from the Maasai "siringet" meaning endless plains. The Central Serengeti offers superb game viewing all year round due to its abundance of resident animals.
Specifically, the Seronera River Valley in the Central Serengeti is a must-see on every safari regardless of the specific month of travel. Game viewing in Central Serengeti is at its best during the dry season - June to November - as resident animals are more concentrated in the immediate area due to the lack of water on the plains. Resident herbivores include impala, buffalo, hippo, warthog, topi, hartebeest, and giraffe. Resident carnivores include lion and leopard.
Tarangire National Park, which is almost 3,000 square kilometers in size, is probably best known for its huge numbers of elephants and baobab trees. The name of the park comes from the Tarangire River which crosses through the park. Tarangire is especially spectacular during the dry season (June to November) as wildlife concentrations rival that of the Serengeti since enormous populations of elephants and other animals are drawn to the Tarangire River as their only source of water.
With its varied habitats and permanent water in the Tarangire River, the park is home to over 2,000 elephants and 500 bird species.
Six breakfasts, five lunches, and four dinners are included in the price.
Please book your flight to arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). Tanzania Roadside Expeditions will pick you up from the airport. The pick-up is included in the price.
