Welcome to the most famous wildlife area on the planet!
Northern Tanzania Safari is an essential destination on everyone’s travel list. The Serengeti’s Great Migration is one of the most amazing wildlife spectacles, whilst being on safari on the Crater floor of the extinct volcano at Ngorongoro is a game viewing environment that has no equal. Towering above it all is Kilimanjaro, the world’s highest freestanding mountain and arguably Africa’s toughest challenge. Away from the tourist hotspots, quieter parks such as Tarangire are superb for game viewing yet often overlooked to their more famous neighbors. The Rift Valley Lakes of Eyasi and Natron are the home of Hadzabe tribes and the breeding grounds for the largest flocks of flamingo on earth. To many people a Northern Tanzanian Safari is the very best of it all.
The driving circuit
The first, and most simple way to look at the northern parks is to drive out to and back from the parks. This itinerary takes in the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara National Park over the course of 5 or 6 nights and and is the most cost effective itinerary that is on offer in the north.
