National Parks

Lake Manyara National Park
As soon as you enter the park you are amazed by the dense vegetation and the amount of ancient trees, which create a home for hordes of baboons. Further into the park the forest turns lighter and transitions into grassy plains and swamps to the Manyara Salt Lake. There you will be thrilled by the flamingos, pelicans and storks. The southern end of the park features
hot sulphur baths by the name of “Maji Moto”. The best known animals of the park are the tree lions, which spend the majority of their time stretched out on the branches of acacia trees. The park is also home to buffaloes, elephants, giraffes, antelopes,
zebras, hippopotamuses and many smaller species.

Serengeti National Park
More than 3 million animals live in these endless plains, which are interspersed with rock formations and rivers. There are over 35 species of animals including the “Big Five” (elephants, rhinos, buffaloes, lions and leopards) living in the legendary vastness
of the Serengeti. Each year one million wildebeest, two hundred thousand zebras and three hundred thousand gazelles gather just around the beginning of the rainy season to commence their spectacular wanderings to the pastures and waters in the western and northern part of the park in May and June. Then the sun parched paths are dusty, the dry grass brittle. The rainy season turns this golden horizon miraculously into an endless green carpet, speckled with wild flowers.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Surrounded by steep walls, this giant amphitheatre boasts a diameter of about 20 kilometres. It is a breathtaking phenomenon. “You cannot correctly describe the crater,” said Dr. Grzimek, “because there is nothing to compare it to.”
In this garden of Eden, which can be accessed with all wheel drive vehicles, you will encounter hundreds of thousands of animals that are moving about: elephants, buffaloes, gnus, gazelles, zebras and rhinos. Monkeys and predators like cheetahs, hyenas and lions can be observed in their natural habitat. There are more than 150 bird species, which cannot
be found in the Serengeti, roaming around here: ostriches, grey crowned cranes and numerous flamingos enchant the onlookers.
Tarangire National Park
The year round water carrying Tarangire River is the lifeline of the 2600 km² large national park. The hilly savannah landscape with its umbrella acacia trees and baobabs close to the park entrance changes into enormous grass plains towards the south, which become complete swamps during rainy season and offer fresh grass for numerous species of animals. Tarangire National Park is known for its richness in species. The always green swamps attract 550 different types of birds. There is no other place in the world that is a nesting place for this many species. The national park is the preferred home of zebra, gnu and elephant herds. But antelopes, gazelles, wart hogs, baboons, giraffes and the world’s largest bird the Maasai Ostrich can be found here as well.

ITINERARY AND HIGHLIGHTS

Tanzania Classic

day 1

Moshi – Lake Manyara Park

You will be picked up at your hotel and will go on a three-hour drive to the East African Rift in the Lake Manyara National Park. When you get there, the roof will be opened up for the first game drive. You will cross the forest and keep your eyes open for monkeys of all different species, elephants lumbering between the trees and many other inhabitants of the forest. You are
certain to encounter large herds of buffalos, zebras, gnus and giraffes in the grass covered flood plains. Also look at the trees – you might see a lion dozing on the branches. At the marshy riversides of the Lake Manyara salt lake, you will find water birds like flamingos, pelicans and cormorants.

day 2

Lake Manyara – Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, you will head to the famous Serengeti National Park. On your way, you will pass the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the “African Eden”, which has a very rich variety of vegetation and species. Soft hills, dormant volcanoes and stunning jungles provide a breath-taking view. During migration from January to March, millions of gnus and zebras pass the Serengeti
Plains and the edges of Ngorongoro. When you enter Serengeti through the Nabi Gate, you will have an impressive first impression. The first game drive will be on the way to your lodge.

day 3 - Serengeti

Serengeti National Park

The third day begins in the heart of Serengeti, the Seronera Valley, among umbrella thorn acacias and huge fig trees. The range of hills in the north feed several waterholes which attract numerous impalas, antelopes, reedbucks and baboons. Hippos splash around in the water, leopards rest on the acacias and lions take naps in the high grass. This day is completely devoted to game drives in Serengeti. You can decide how you would like to organize the day.

day 4

Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Crater
If you are up for it, you can go for an early morning game drive on day 4. We start right after a coffee and a small snack. The first rays of sun cast long shadows and it is the best time for good pictures! You often get to see hyenas, active hippos or you might get to see a pride of lions having breakfast. Experience the unique sunrise in the savannah where the air is as crisp as nowhere
else. After brunch, you will go on your next game drive and will take some breaks for pictures heading to the Ngorongoro Crater where you will spend the next night in the Simba Camp.

day 5

Ngorongoro Crater – Tarangire National Park

Early birds can enjoy the spectacular sunrise above the crater. You will then go down the steep hills to the crater floor of Ngorongoro. Keep your cameras at the ready, as there is nowhere else with a higher animal density. The crater, which was declared a UNESCO, World Heritage site, is a romping ground for almost all species of the East African wildlife. With a little bit of
luck, you will have the chance to see the endangered black rhino, which is part of the “big five” together with the buffalo, lion, elephant and leopard! In the afternoon, you will leave the crater and will head to the Tarangire National Park.

day 6

Tarangire National Park – Moshi

At the end, you will visit the Tarangire National Park, a former hunting ground, which is particularly known for its high numbers of elephants. The National Park is a park which stretches along its central line, the Tarangire River. The landscape is characterized by hills, savannah and marshland. The huge baobab trees with their majestic silhouette are really impressive and give the place a really special charm. Enjoy the vast panorama during your last game drive in the morning before you head back to the starting point of your safari, Moshi
