This unique itinerary is a one-way driving safari to Tanzania’s very best wildlife areas. At the end of the safari, in the Serengeti, we fly you back to the Kilimanjaro airport, in time to connect with a flight out or connect with a flight to Zanzibar. With 6 days, you have time to experience northern Tanzania’s best wildlife viewing.
From November through May, we visit Lake Manyara, a scenic park with classic African big game and fantastic birdlife (over 400 species). From June through October we visit Tarangire. Tarangire is a beautiful park filled with Baobabs and Acacias with a large variety of game such as zebras, buffalo, giraffes, and waterbuck. Of note during this time are the massed elephants along the Tarangire river – a tremendous sight – and the healthy prides of lions.
From there, we head to the Ngorongoro. This is the largest intact crater in the world abundant with wild game including elephants, rhinos, cheetahs, lions, leopards, and hyenas.
You will also visit the Serengeti, Tanzania’s most famous and largest national park and one of the most spectacular parks in the world. The “endless plains” cover some 14,763 square kilometers including large plains, short grass plains, kopjes, and lakes.
