This Spectacular Six Day Magical Safari to Ngorongoro & the famed Serengeti takes us to three of Tanzania’s best attractions on the Northern Safari Circuit. We begin our adventure at the Ngorongoro Crater, a six hundred and ten metres deep caldera formed some two to three million years ago with the explosion of a volcano which rivalled Kilimanjaro in height. With a resident population of some twenty-five thousand large mammals the crater offers the best game viewing experience of all the parks of Tanzania. A UNESCO world heritage site and one of the seven wonders of Africa, the Ngorongoro Crater is a sublime landscape to experience. Following our adventure in the Ngorongoro Crater we will go safari upon the Serengeti, home to over three million large mammals, and one of the most celebrated landscapes on Earth.
As with Ngorongoro we will here hope to encounter potentially all of the ‘big five’ rhino, elephant, buffalo, lion, and leopard, as well as a vast array of other creatures, Grant’s and Thompson’s gazelle, bushbuck, hartebeest, wildebeest, ostrich, actually over four hundred species of bird are here present, hippo, meerkat, and the speedy cheetah. We bring our adventure to a delightful end taking the opportunity to visit Manyara National Park, the namesake lake of which comprises seventy percent of the Parks environs. An ornithological paradise with some five hundred species of bird here present, we will game drive the lake shore and drink in the incredible sight of some thousand flamingo feeding. With luck, we may even see some lions lounging in the trees. Accommodation is tented lodge.
