The Greatest Wildlife Specactle on Earth
WONDEROUS WILDLIFE ENCOUNTERS
The seemingly endless plains of the Serengeti host one of the world’s greatest displays of animal migration. Nothing can prepare you for the sheer number of animals that descend upon the area in a pilgrimage in search of food and water. Witness the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle – up close!
Up to 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra perform this large-scale migration. Not surprisingly, there are large numbers of predators ready to contribute to the circle of life.
Maasai pastoralists also live in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, tending their herds of cattle, sheep, and goats. There is fossil evidence to suggest this area has been occupied by hominids for at least 3 million years.
Spend time in luxurious and private tented camps; the most exclusive way of getting close to the true essence of safari.
TANZANIA SAFARI HIGHLIGHTS
The beauty of Tanzania is unmatched in Africa. It is a country of natural splendour, fascinating wildlife, enchanting ancient towns, archaeological remains, and geological wonders. Visit the Serengeti to witness the mighty herds of the Great Migration thundering over the plains. End your safari with a serene beach holiday on the Island of Zanzibar to experience the exotic beauty of the Spice Islands.
The northern circuit' is a wildlife spectacle in Tanzania. Safaris to the Serengeti are considered by many to be the most spectacular in Africa. The Serengeti is one of the premier places in Africa to see predators like lions, leopards, and cheetahs.
Nyerere National Park (formerly the Selous) is the largest game reserve in Africa - larger than Switzerland - with only a few small camps around. It is ideal for combining with the hotter, drier Ruaha National Park. Each provides an authentic wilderness experience.
There are very few other travelers in Western Tanzania, which makes for superb wildlife safari experiences. The buffalo and lion of Katavi National Park or the chimpanzees of the densely forested Mahale Mountains National Park will captivate you, as will the history of the region.
Experience the Ngorongoro Crater is the world's largest intact, unflooded caldera, home to one of the biggest concentrations of large mammals in Africa. Lions and hyenas abound.
Take a walking safari in Tanzania's Tarangire National Park. The park features large herds of elephants and spectacular scenery..
