SAFARI TOURS IN TANZANIA

 

The finest wildlife sanctuaries in East Africa are the Masai Mara, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti, home to migrant birds, about 57 different species of birds of prey and wildlife in abundance.  Due to the prolific amount of game, it is not surprising that lion, cheetah and leopard find an ongoing source of food here. One of the most spectacular sights in the are is in the Serengeti and the Masai Mara, wehn the massive migration of animals to new grazing pastures takes place each year. Between July and August, literally millions of wildebeest, often aptly termed the "clowns of the African wildlife", head in their droves from the Serengeti in search of fresh grasslands further north towards the Masai Mara in Kenya. The best place from which to view the mass migration is from the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya or Serengeti in Tanzania.

 

Safari Tour Itineraries

 

We have several options available dependant on which areas you wish to go to, and how long.

 

3 Day Safari Option 1

Day 1

After breakfast, we load up the vehicle, check out of the hotel and drive away from Moshi to Lake Munyara. By comparison with Ngorongoro and Tarangire, Manyara is much smaller but no less scenic. It is thus ideally suited as an introduction to safari touring. It is situated between the escarpment formed by the rift valley and the soda water lake Manyara. It is an ideal spot for bird lovers and is home to large groups of elephant as well as the "tree climbing lion".  Large numbers of buffalo, grazing giraffe and wildebeest are also found in the area along with the chattering monkeys and rummaging warthogs. We overnight at the camp or lodge. 

 

Day 2

After breakfast drive to and tour the Ngorongoro. 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. As a result, it is home to some 20 000 wild animals and although the animals move in and out of the area consistently, the vegetation in the crater floor attracts is a source of ongoing food supply attracting the gazers, and thus, predators as well. We will enjoy a picnic lunch in the crater and later, proceed to the camp to spend the evening.

  

Day 3

After breakfast we head towards Tarangire National Park which lies south of the Ngorongoro National Park. It covers about 2600 sq km of floodplains, grassland and tall woodlands of acacia. It is also home to the famous Baobab trees, hundreds of years old. During the dryer 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 well known for its elephants as large numbers pour into the area around June, along with many of the buck species, the clown of the animals, the wildebeest, and their companion, the zebra. The area is also 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 head back to our hotel in Moshi.
