The northern circuits are popular, as the National Parks they are close together and support a large concentration of both flora and fauna. Tanzania, unlike other African countries is blessed with abundance of wildlife and natural beauty. This is a four days group tour with maximum of 6 clients (in a custom safari jeep with pop up roof) accompined by a guide/driver & the chef. This tour takes you around the famous north circuit parks, the Ngorongoro crater being the highlight park with its beautiful landscapes & surreal view of the crater & it is easier seeing animals as it is a crater floor, the Tarangire being like a smaller Serengeti but famous for the big herds of elephants so this tour gives you an adequate time in the parks to view wild animals
An approximate two-hour drive will take you from Arusha to the Tarangire National Park. The park is best known for its elephant herds, savannah, baobab trees, seasonal swamps and the life-giving Tarangire River. Animals gather at the river and giraffes, bushbucks and hartebeests are often seen. With a bit of luck you might even spot the fringe-eared oryx or the weird-looking gerenuk. The park is also home to buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are seen every once in a while but cheetahs are rarely spotted. From the open roof of the vehicle you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. Late in the afternoon, you will leave the park and drive to the Campsite where you will spend the night.
After breakfast you will drive towards the fertile crater highlands where the Iraqw people grow wheat, corn and coffee. At midday you will reach the plains of the Serengeti National Park, the largest park in Tanzania. The Serengeti has a diversity of landscapes including short grass plains, savannah, thick bush, swamps and lakes and it is famous for the yearly migration when hundred thousands of wildebeest and zebras trek to find fresh grass and water. On your way to your accommodation you will understand, where the word Serengeti (plains in the language of the Maasai) comes from. In the early evening you will reach the Campsite where you will spend the night.
After breakfast you will continue your safari in the Serengeti National Park. In the Seronera Valley you might be lucky to see predators hunt as animals gather at the waters during the dry season. After lunch at a picnic spot you will slowly drive in the direction of the Ngorongoro Crater. As soon as you have reached the crater you will have a superb view of the caldera. This approximate 20 km wide crater is part of an UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to over 20,000 animals. You will stay at the Simba Campsite on the crater rim from where you will be able to enjoy an incredible sunset.
Rise and shine! After an early breakfast you will drive down the steep path into the crater just. The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest, unbroken and unflooded caldera in the world and it has an unbelievable diversity of wildlife. In addition to zebras and wildebeests, you might also spot the rare black rhino and other members of the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. The crater is also home to other animals such as hyenas, waterbucks, bushbucks, eland and more than 500 bird species. After an extensive game drive and a picnic lunch you will leave the caldera in the afternoon and drive back to Arusha, where you will arrive in the early evening.
