Tanzania is full of safari highlights and exceptional game areas, not to mention the Serengeti National Park. It is your time and opportunity to be able to witness the world's most renowned safari natural park from a close distant! There are lots of big cats, and hordes of wildebeest, zebra and Thompson's gazelle migrate across the grasslands every year, with dramatic river crossings along the path of the migrating animals and roamed wildlife. If there is a safari you should go on, this has to be it!
You will be provided three nights of accommodation in sleeping tents and you will stay at Panorama campsite or Sunbright campsite, Seronera campsite, and Simba campsite during the safari tour.
Panorama is an ideal place for those who like to crawl the national parks of Tanzania. In addition, the camp lays right above Lake Manyara and Park which is famous for the tree-climbing lions. In Panorama campsite, you can have a rest in exotic beehives shaped bungalows called African Igloos or in permanent tents that are also equipped with convenient beds. The terrace offers breathtaking views of Lake Manyara and Mto Wa Mbu village.
Seronera campsite is one of the most famed campsites in Tanzania for animal encounters. Animals will pass through the campsite at night on their nocturnal wanderings.
Ngorongoro Simba is a huge public campsite set on the crater rim and it is situated on the southwestern rim of the Ngorongoro Crater Rim about two kilometers from the crater village.
The campsite has well-maintained toilets and regularly attended hot water showers (heated by wood fires) and firewood for sale. Wild animals from the crater and Serengeti as far as from another part of Ngorongoro Conservation Area frequently visit the campsite which is not fenced, so you should move with caution.
In the morning after breakfast, you will depart from your hotel to Tarangire National Park, followed by a packed lunch at the park. In the afternoon, enjoy game viewing in the park renowned for the famous tree climbing lions as well as the large flocks of the flamingos. You will return to your campsite for dinner and overnight at Panorama campsite/ or Sunbright campsite.
In the morning after breakfast, you will proceed to Serengeti National Park with picnic lunch boxes continued by an en-route game drive in the park. You will come back for dinner and overnight at the Seronera campsite.
In the morning after breakfast, you will proceed to another game drive at Serengeti National Park, which is famous for cheetah, lion, and leopard, with a lunch box prepared from the campsite. Later in the afternoon, you will enjoy an en-route game viewing to Ngorongoro Carter, followed by dinner and overnight at Simba campsite.
In the morning after breakfast, you will descend down to Ngorongoro Crater floor with a picnic lunch box for a morning game drive of the wild animals including the big five animals, including the rare black rhino. You will wrap the day and drive back to Arusha.
This safari will take place in Tarangire National Park, Serengeti National Park, and Ngorongoro Crater.
Day after the day of cloudless skies. 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 shriveled to a shadow of its wet season self but it is choked with wildlife. Thirsty nomads have wandered hundreds of parched kilometers knowing that there is always water in the river. Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams.
Migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest, and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It is 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 kilometer range until they exhaust the green plains and the river calls once more. Tarangire's mobs of elephant are easily encountered, wet or dry. The swamps, tinged green year round, are the focus for 550 bird varieties. 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.
With a million wildebeest, it is survival of the fittest as 40 kilometers of long columns plunge through crocodile-infested waters on the annual exodus north. Tanzania's oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site, and recently proclaimed a 7th worldwide wonder, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration when some six million hooves pound the open plains as more than 200,000 zebras and 300,000 Thomson's gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing.
The Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa with great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala, and Grant’s gazelle. Golden-maned lion prides feast on the abundance of plain grazers. Solitary leopards haunt the acacia trees lining the Seronera River, while a high density of cheetahs prowls the southeastern plains.
A full 100 varieties of dung beetle have been recorded, as having 500-plus bird species, ranging from the out sized ostrich and bizarre secretary bird of the open grassland to the black eagles that soar effortlessly above the Lobo Hills. As enduring as the game-viewing is the liberating sense of space that characterizes the Serengeti Plains, stretching across sun burnt savannah to a shimmering golden horizon at the end of the earth.
Yet, after the rains, this golden expanse of grass is transformed into an endless green carpet flecked with wildflowers. There are also wooded hills and towering termite mounds, rivers lined with fig trees, and acacia woodland stained orange by dust. Popular the Serengeti might be, it remains so vast that you may be the only human audience when a pride of lions masterminds a siege, focused unswervingly on its next meal.
Had it not become the world's sixth-largest unbroken caldera, then what is now known as the Ngorongoro crater could have been a towering volcanic mountain, as high as Kilimanjaro. The crater is the flagship tourism feature for the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It is a large, unbroken, and un-flooded caldera, formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed some three million years ago.
The Ngorongoro crater sinks to a depth of 610 meters, with a base area covering 260 square kilometers. The height of the original volcano must have ranged between 4,500 to 5,800 meters high. Apart from the main caldera, Ngorongoro also has two other volcanic craters, Olmoti and Empakai. The former is famous for its stunning waterfalls and the latter holding a deep lake and lush, green walls.
On the leeward of the Ngorongoro highlands protrudes the iconic Oldonyo Lengai. It is an active volcano and Tanzania's third highest peak after Kilimanjaro and Meru. Known to local people as the Mountain of God, Mount Lengai's last major eruption occurred in 2007. At the mountain's foot is Lake Natron, East Africa's major breeding ground for flamingos.
You will be served three local cooked meals daily. Food is excellent and you will find a good mix of African, European and International cuisine. Fresh vegetables, seafood, and meats make it an exceptional culinary experience to travel here. South African wines are sold everywhere and are excellent. Tap water is not drinkable in most areas, only bottled water should be consumed.
The Serengeti National Park offers hot air balloon safaris, walking safari, picnicking, game drives, bush lunch or dinner that can be arranged with hotels or tour operators. You may also opt for Maasai rock paintings and musical rocks.
