Location

This safari tour will take you from Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Arusha National Park, and Materuni Waterfalls in Tanzania.

Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park offers a wilderness experience in diverse habitats, from its Rift Valley soda lake to dense woodlands and steep mountainsides. Apart from a spectacular setting, the park is famous for its unusual tree-climbing lions and the vast elephant herds it was established to protect.

The shores of the lake, encrusted with pink flamingo, attract more than 400 species of birds, many of them waterfowl or migrants. Large herds of buffalo, cheetah, Masai giraffe, and impala roam the lake shores and the forested valley slopes.

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is the sixth largest national park in Tanzania and is located at Manyara Region, behind the national parks of Ruaha, Serengeti, Mikumi, Katavi, and Mkomazi. The name originates from Tarangire River that crosses in the park., the only source of water for wild animals during dry seasons.

During the dry season, animals migrate to Tarangire National Park from Manyara National Park. The landscape and vegetation is incredibly diverse with a mix that is not found anywhere else in the northern parks. The hilly landscape has vast numbers of Baobab trees, dense bush, and high grasses.

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park is the most ancient and immensely famous park, it is hugely known for its annual migration. You can witness around six million hooves keep on hitting the open plains. There are also sights such as 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle

200,000 zebra coming together along with the wildebeests trek to feed on grassland.

It is really hard to confine the attractions of Serengeti to migration alone. There are numerous Grants gazelle, impala, kongoni, topi, elands, giraffes, small groups of elephants, large herds of buffalo, and many more.

Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater was once a gigantic volcano. It is a deep volcanic caldera, a breathtaking natural wonder. Before it erupted, it would have been higher than Mt Kilimanjaro. Today, long since having collapsed and eroded, it is an extensive highland area with 600 meters deep. Nearly three million years old, this ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth.

Arusha National Park

Arusha National Park covers an area of 542 square kilometers and lies between the peaks of Mountain Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru and ascends from 1500 meters at Momela to 4566 meters at the summit of Mount Meru. Initially, when established in 1960, the park contained Ngurdoto Crater and Momela lakes, until 1967 when Mt. Meru was made part of it.

The flora and fauna varies with the topography, which ranges from forest to swamp. The best time for visiting is during the dry season from July to March. The best months to climb Mount Meru are June to February (although there are some rains in November).

On clear days magnificent views of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru can be seen from almost any part of the park. The best views of Mt. Kilimanjaro are from December to February.
