  • Ngorongoro Crater Safari

    Indisputably one of Africa’s true wonders of nature and an extraordinary place of haunting beauty, with its grand majestic mountain ring and lake, pinkly shimmering in the blue grey haze.

    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 conservation area is also home to Masai people and their cattle which co-exist with the existing wildlife in a unique ecosystem.

  • Lake Manyara National Park Safari

    Located 125 km west of Arusha town, under the wall of the Great Rift Valley, Lake Manyara National Park is one of the oldest and most popular sanctuaries in East Africa.

    The park has a large variety of habitats, making it possible to support a wealth of wildlife in its small area.

    The most famous spectacle in the park is the tree-climbing lions, which are occasionally seen along branches of acacia trees. Other animals found in the park include buffalo, elephants, leopards, baboons, impala, giraffes, zebra, wildebeest, ostrich and hippos.

    Popularly referred to as an ornithologist’s paradise, Lake Manyara National Park contains over 400 bird species found in most savanna and river habitats in East Africa. Common water birds to be seen here are pelicans, spoonbills, Egyptian geese, hammerkops and the migratory flamingoes, which arrive in hundreds of thousands creating one of Africa’s great natural sights over the soda lake.

  • Tarangire National Park

    It is the vast number of magnificent baobab trees that first capture the eye as you enter Tarangire National Park. The gently rolling countryside is dotted with these unusual trees, which seem to dwarf the animals that feed beneath them. During the dry season (June to October) there is an annual animal ‘migration’ into the park, as wildlife travels from other areas into the park to quench their thirst in the waters of the Tarangire River. During this period, the park has the largest concentration of animals in any park in northern Tanzania.

  • Serengeti National Park Safari

    The Serengeti is the jewel in the crown of Tanzania’s parks and undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world. With countless predators including lion, cheetah and leopard, more than two million wildebeest, half a million Thomson’s gazelle, and a quarter of a million zebra, it has the greatest concentration of wildlife on our planet.

    The wildebeest and zebra moreover form the star cast of a unique spectacular – the annual migration. Month-to-month wildebeest migration pattern will assist you in planning your memorable Tanzania Migration Safari.

    Between May and July you might be lucky to witness the fascinating spectacle of thousands of Wildebeest and Zebras crossing the crocodile infested Grumeti River together with their new born.

    The main game drive areas in the Serengeti are the Seronera Valley, the Western Corridor, and Lobo or northern Serengeti. The Seronera valley in central Serengeti endowed with permanent surface water attract a large concentration of wildlife throughout the year. Common animals that can be seen here are lions, buffaloes, impalas, hippos, waterbucks, elephants, cheetahs and the leopard. Serengeti provides sanctuary to the highest concentration of plains animals in the world.

  • HOW NGORONGORO CRATER WAS FORMED

    Once thought to be higher than Mt. Kilimanjaro before exploding, the crater is an iconic wilderness and safari destination. Linked to the Serengeti the two areas, as we know them today, were formed at the same time. With the explosion the crater was formed. Time and wind ensured ground cover and vegetation taking hold and producing one of the most nutritious eco-systems on earth. There are said to be 25 000 animals living in the crater, many of which are permanent residents.

    It can get quite cold at night and in the early morning at Ngorongoro so make sure to pack appropriate attire.

  • ZANZIBAR BEACH ADD-ON
