Day after 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 zebra 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 have 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 unswerving 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.
During this safari, you will be served three daily meals and water.
Please book your flight to arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). Transfer from and to the airport is included. The Global Adventure Safaris will pick you up from the airport.
