Africa’s great game park, the Serengeti is renowned for its abundance of lion & leopard and its expansive geography. The park is vast, as big as Northern Ireland, and with its plains of short-grass and graceful Acacia trees, the immensity of the park makes it one of the greatest destinations for wildlife viewing. On the wide-open plains, see huge herds of wildebeest, most spectacular during the annual migration, as well as elephant, rhino, buffalo, gazelle, zebra, cheetah, lion, leopard, and more.
Located west of the Great Rift Valley, the Ngorongoro Crater was once an active volcano, some eight million years ago, whose cone collapsed creating a giant crater and which is now a spectacular setting and home to a wide variety of wildlife. The crater rim is wooded with forest vegetation and reaches over 2,200 meters high. The crater is home to one of the world’s densest wildlife populations, with in and around 350,000 wild animals. See elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, buffalo, thousands of flamingoes, a large birdlife and plenty more.
Only a few hours from Arusha, a common entry/exit point for a Tanzania safari, Tarangire is a popular stop for the northern Tanzania safari route as you make your way to Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Tarangire is the name of the river that crosses through the park, the only water source during the dry seasons, and its topography is accented by the hilly landscape dotted with Baobab trees, dense bush and high grasses, along with great views of the Masai Steppe and mountains to the south. The landscape and vegetation is diverse and a good mix from what is found along the northern safari circuit. Known best for its large concentration of elephants and tree climbing lions, Tarangire is a memorable experience diversified by its geography and collection of wildlife.
One of the country’s smallest parks, this national park is located beneath the cliffs of the Manyara escarpment, on the edge of the Rift Valley, and offers varied ecosystems, great birdlife and excellent views. Lake Manyara itself is a shallow alkaline line, shrinking further during the dry season, and is home to millions of flamingoes during the rains giving the lake a shimmering pink glow. On your safari, you may see lions, elephants, hyena, hippos, giraffes, and more in this diverse park with vegetation ranging from forest to swamps, savannah and more.
