One of the finest wildlife sanctuaries in Tanzania, is the Serengeti which flows into the Maasai Mara, home to migrant birds, about 57 different species of birds of prey and wildlife in abundance. On arrival, one is immediately struck by the large herds of elephant, shuffling about
in the grasslands. Due to the prolific amount of game, it is not surprising that lion, cheetah and leopard find an ongoing source of food here.
However, by far the most spectacular sight in the Serengeti, is the massive migration of animals to new grazing pastures each year. Between July and August each year, literally millions of wildebeest, head in their droves from the Serengeti in search of fresh grasslands further north towards the Maasai Mara in Kenya.
Tanzania has so much to offer her visitors. She is home to one of the 7 summits - Kilimanjaro, has several game parks teeming with animals including Meru National Park, home to Mt Meru, and Tanzania is home to the annual migration of the wildebeest and has pristine beach and dive areas on the coast line.

By comparison with
Tarangire, Manyara is much smaller but
no less scenic. It is situated
the escarpment formed by the rift valley
and the soda water Lake Manyara. It
an ideal spot for bird lovers and home
to large groups of elephant and the
climbing lion. Large numbers of
buffalo, grazing giraffe and wildebeest
are found in
the area along with chattering monkeys and rummaging
Day-3 After breakfast,
we will drive to and tour
the Serengeti. The area
is particularly famous for the massive
migration of 1.5million Wildebeest, and
several thousand Zebra all
heading for greener pastures and
improved grazing area's, risking life
and limb to predators such as Lion and
The National Park is broadly divided
into three areas, the Seronera Valley
and Seronera River, the Western Corridor
and the Northern 'Lobo' area that
extends northwards to join the Masai
Mara. We will spend
the day game viewing and then head to
our overnight accommodation.
Day-4 Tour of the
Serengeti park and overnight at camp/lodge
Day-5 We drive to
the Ngorongoro Crater via Olduvai Gorge,
one of the most important
paleoanthropological sites in the world.
Overnight at the
Day-6 This morning we will descend into and tour Ngorongoro Crater. The Ngorongoro Crater is the world's
largest intact caldera, forming an incredible bowl shape with sides of about 600m deep, and covering a distance of about 270km square. Various habitats form a complete microcosm within the crater floor, from grasslands to forest, swamps and Lake Makat.
It is home to about 20 000 wild animals
and although the animals move in and out
of the area consistently, the vegetation
in the crater floor provides an ongoing
food supply attracting the gazers. We enjoy lunch in
the crater and later, overnight Ngorongoro Crater.
Day-7 This morning we head to Tarangire
National Park south of the Ngorongoro.
It covers about 2600 sq km of
floodplains, grassland and tall
woodlands of acacia. It is home to the
famous Baobab trees, hundreds of years
old. During the drier winter months of
July to September, a large number of
migrant animals flock to the plains,
which tend to be less concentrated with
game in the months of April and May when
there is more rain. Tarangire is
known for its elephants as large numbers
pour into the area around June, along
with many buck species, wildebeest and
zebra. The area is rich in bird life as
well as a few resident lion who tend to
remain all year round. At the end of the
day, interrupted only by watching game
and taking in a picnic lunch
we drive back to Moshi.
