  • Ngorongoro Crater Wildlife and Best time to go

    Ngorongoro Crater is a huge caldera (collapsed volcano) 300 square km in size, 19.2 km in diameter and 600 meters deep. It is home to one of the world’s largest inactive and unflooded volcanic calderas with a rich diversity of Tanzania wildlife safari(including some of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhino), and the famous paleontological site of Oldovai Gorge nearby.

    The Ngorongoro Crater supports a year-round large resident population of wildlife and grazing animals. These include Wildebeest, Buffalo, Zebra, Giraffe, Gazelle, Eland, and Warthog. The swamps and forests provide additional resources for Hippo, Elephant, Waterbuck, Reedbuck and Bushbuck, Baboons and vervet monkeys. Jackals thrive in the Ngorongoro Crater and bat-eared foxes live in the short grass. Predatory animals: Lion, Leopard and Cheetah, several cats and large packs of Hyena roam the Ngorongoro Crater, making their own kills and scavenging from others.

  • Lake Manyara National Park Information

    Lake Manyara Serena offers breathtaking views of the Great Rift Valley and beautiful Manyara Soda Lake. Built in the traditional African circular theme, it is free flowing and graceful, with hardly a single straight line in its design.

    Lake Manyara is generally warm to hot throughout the year, with temperatures rising to above 35°C/95°F during the warmest months (September, October and January). The rainfall is seasonal, with two dry periods and two rainy periods during the year. Short, late-afternoon or evening thunderstorms occur in November and December, as well as from March to May. The dry periods last from June to October, as well as during January and February.

    Best time to travel: All year round, best game-viewing August to September and December to February.

  • Central Serengeti Wildlife

    The central Serengeti is home to the beautiful Seronera River Valley. Several perennial rivers run through this valley enabling many resident animals to thrive year round. The combination of location and resident prey attracts the largest populations of predators in Africa.

    It is this amazing abundance and diversity of easily seen large predators that attracts thousands of visitors and hundreds of researches to the Seronera River Valley each year. There is simply no better place in Africa to observe these large carnivores and since many are resident, excellent encounters are available year round regardless of the season or where the great migratory herds are located. It is not unusual to see all four large predators (lion, hyena, leopard and cheetah) during the course of a day in the central Serengeti.

    A night or two at the Serengeti Serena Lodge will fit nicely into every itinerary and will appeal to those people seeking comfortable lodge-based accommodation in the action packed area of the Central Serengeti and Seronera . The Seronera River Valley in particular, with its abundance of resident animals including all the big carnivores, is a must see no matter what time of year.

  • Serengeti West Wildlife

    Although there is plenty of resident wildlife to witness all year long, Kirawira offers especially splendid game viewing from May through mid July during the northward wildebeest migration. During the northward migration, Kirawira boasts a front seat to the thunderous theatre that is the million-strong wildebeest migration. Additionally, throughout the entire dry season (May to November), the surrounding area offers great wildlife viewing for resident animals including giraffe, elephant, lion, hyena, impala, topi, crocodile, hippo and several species of primates including the beautiful black and white colobus monkey (this species is only found in the Western Serengeti).

    Kirawira can also make a great spot in November when a portion of the southward migration may pass through the area especially if the onset of the rains is delayed. During November, some of the migratory wildebeest and zebra accumulate in the Western Serengeti before making their final southward leap to the southern Serengeti Plains.
