Safari  / Tours / Best of Tanzania Safari

Lake Manyara is considered to be a scenic gem, a bird-lovers delight. Ernest Hemingway described the national park as the 'loveliest' he had seen in Africa and people never have enough words to describe the experience of watching thousands of pink flamingoes resting around the lake. Other animals found at the national park include huge concentrations of wildebeest, zebra, giraffe and buffalo.

Your next adventure takes you to the iconic Serengeti National Park, home to the Great Migration. Those lucky enough to witness this phenomenon from up close have described it as a life-changing experience and it is easy to understand why. The sight of predatory action right in front of you or watching thousands of game animals trying to make their way across crocodile infested rivers is a sight you'll never forget.

The last leg of this journey takes you to the Ngorongoro Crater, an adventure unlike any other. The high walls of the crater prevented man from interfering with the ecosystem and also refrained the animals from interacting with the outer world. As a resut, the crater is home to some of the most exotic species on the planet, including the rare African black rhino. This is the best place to see the Big 5 on the same day, and the small geographical area also ensures that you never go back home feeling disappointed.

Itinerary

Day
1


Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park is a small but scenic safari park, excellent for birdwatching and a good area to find the elephant, as well as the potential excitement of spotting a legendary Lake Manyara tree-climbing lion. Lake Manyara is a good soft introduction to the safari experience. It is a magical and pretty park that winds its way around a mainly forested driving route between the banks of soda water lake and the impressive rise of the Great Rift escarpment. Elephant, giraffe, buffalo and wildebeest can be found grazing in unexpected clearings or heading towards the water to drink or wash, and the rivers and riverbeds provide scenic vistas for possible animal spottings. Warthogs seem to thrive here, growing notably fat and tuskered, and it is a natural playground for baboons and monkeys. The tree-climbing lion of Lake Manyara inspire extensive theorising as to the wonders of evolution, and are also notoriously rarely seen.

Lake manyara to Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, depart for the Serengeti National Park with picnic lunch boxes, game drives en route towards Serengeti park game

This land is justifiably famous for its huge concentrations of wildlife, especially the big cats, as well as being the stomping ground of the Great Migration, a massive accumulation of 1.5 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebras and 350,000 gazelles stretching their legs over 1,200 miles in an
annual race to find enough water and green grass for their survival. The National Park is broadly divided into three distinct areas, the Seronera Valley and Seronera River, the Western Corridor and the Northern Lobo area that extends northwards through the Lamai Wedge to the Maasai
Mara. Most visitors enter the Serengeti through the southern Naabi Hill Gate, which opens onto the Seronera Valley; a vibrant wildlife area at the heart of the Serengeti.

Serengeti to Ngorongoro

Ngorongoro is a fascinating and unusual Conservation Area which includes the Ngorongoro Crater at its centre, and then extends through the Crater Highlands, in which local tribes are permitted to maintain their traditional lifestyles in as natural environment as possible. This extraordinary volcanic landscape is rich and fertile, with stunning craters and lakes, and the high altitude creates a malaria-free micro climate. The crater is said to have the densest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. As such, Ngorongoro Crater has achieved world renown, and attracts a growing number of visitors each year. Even if time is limited this natural but accessibly small caldera ensures a rewarding safari.
