5 Days Best of Northern Tanzania Safari
This amazing safari will take you to unparalleled concentrations of wildlife namely the Serengeti National Park which is the most famous park in Tanzania and where you can
witness the famed Great Wildebeest Migration from July to October, Tarangire National Park that is popular for herds of elephants, huge and ancient baobab trees plus the renowned Tarangire river which flows all year round, the Ngorongoro Crater or rather the biggest caldera in the world and Lake Manyara National Park with its trademark tag of tree climbing lions.
Day 1 – Tarangire National Park
You will be picked up from Arusha and drive off to Tarangire National Park. This is one of the largest national parks in Tanzania and it identifies with Tarangire river which flows all year round thereby being the only source of water for wild animals during dry season as well as herds of elephants, ancient baobab trees, plenty of wildebeests, elusive leopards and lions, zebras, elands, dikdiks, wild dogs, warthogs, impalas, giraffes, a wide range of bird species, snakes and other reptiles, etc.
Meals: Lunch, Dinner and Breakfast
Accommodation: Tarangire Soppa Lodge or similar
Day 2 – 3 Central Serengeti National Park
After breakfast, drive to the central region of Serengeti National Park with picnic lunch. This park is well known for its healthy stock of resident wildlife particularly the “Big Five” namely Lions, Leopards, Elephants, Rhinos and Buffalos.Serengeti is touted to hold the largest population of lions in Africa due in part, to the abundance of prey species whereby more than 3,000 lions live in this ecosystem.Besides, reclusive predators in the name of leopards are commonly seen in the central region but are nonetheless present throughout the national park with a population of around 1,000. Also, this UNESCO world heritage site is home to roughly 200,000 zebras and over
300,000 Thomson’s gazelles which often join millions of wildebeests in their trek for fresh grazing. Here, you will also listen to the exotic sounds of over 6 million hooves pounding the open plains of Serengeti just like how you imagined African wild life to be.
Meals: Lunch, Dinner and Breakfast
Accommodation: Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge or similar
Day 4 – Ngorongoro Crater
Depart very early in the morning with picnic lunch for Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
This is another UNESCO World Heritage Site located west of Arusha in the highlands of Tanzania. This area is named after Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest caldera. The stunning landscape of Ngorongoro with its vast expanses of highland plains and concentration of wildlife of some 25,000 animals makes this place one of the most exotic natural wonders on earth.
Meals: Dinner, Breakfast and Lunch
Accommodation: Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge or similar
Day 5 – Lake Manyara National Park
Drive off to Lake Manyara National Park via a Maasai village after breakfast. The Park derives its name from the Maasai word Manyara; which is the name for a plant called
Euphorbia Tirucalli and a plant that the Maasai people use to grow livestock stockades.
Manyara produces a stockproof hedge which is very durable among other similar plants.
A specimen of Euphorbia tirucalli is readily available at the entrance of the gate.
The Great Rift Valley Faultline along which the park lies stretches about 8,000 kilometers (4,971 miles) from Turkey to the mouth of the Zambezi River in Mozambique. The fault is so massive that when astronauts landed on the moon, the Rift Valley was clearly visible to them. In the afternoon, you will be driven back to Arusha to mark the end of your safari.
