Our Safari 7 days Serengeti Plains Cheetah Safari is an excellent adventure to get to experience the premier destinations on the Northern Safari Circuit. We begin our journey into the Rift Valley at Manyara National Park, so named for its namesake soda lake that covers some seventy percent of the park’s environs and is host to some thousands of flamingo feeding and breeding. Famed for its tree-climbing lions, Manyara is truly a sight to behold. Roving on from here we take the opportunity to spend three nights upon the Serengeti, world-renowned home to the last great terrestrial migration on our Earth, that of the wildebeest and zebra. After our time on the plains, we head up to the Ngorongoro highlands to witness the awesome spectacle of the Ngorongoro Crater spread out before our eyes. One of the seven wonders of Africa and a UNESCO world
heritage site, this caldera, home to 25,000 large mammals is the premier game viewing experience in the country if not the continent entire. After a safari in the crater we take ourselves to Tarangire National Park, so named for the Tarangire River that winds its way through the parklands and attracts a multitude of myriad wildlife to drink of her sating waters.

After a well-deserved breakfast, our Safari Guide will collect you with a Tanzanian smile from your lodgings for the drive to Lake Manyara National Park. Manyara, a relatively small but diverse park 120km west of Arusha, is so named for the shallow Salt Lake that occupies a good seventy percent of the parklands. Flooding and drying seasonally, this soda lake is home to thousands of flamingos with the park being host to about 500 other bird species. On our exploration of the park, we see monkeys, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, buffalo, elephants, and with some luck, lions lounging in the trees. The park is known for its diverse landscapes, not only open grassy plains but also primate-filled woodlands and baobab dotted cliffs. After our full day in the park, we drive to our lodgings, where we will be afforded the opportunity to relax and enjoy a sumptuous meal with our comfortable quarters awaiting us.
After breakfast, we set out for the fertile highlands where wheat, coffee, and corn are grown by the Iraqi people. Passing through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, we have the opportunity to see the breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater before traveling onwards to the Serengeti National Park which we will reach by mid-day. The Serengeti National Park, the largest park in Tanzania, is a
land of diverse landscapes and habitats such as grassy plains, swamps, lakes, savannah, and mountains. Here the great wildebeest and zebra migration makes its circuitous journey along with a range of other animals and, depending on the season, we may have the opportunity to witness thousands of animals on their search for food and water.
After our extensive game drive, we head for our carefully selected lodgings for rest, delectable dining, and a night below the endlessly starred sky upon the ‘Endless Plain’.
This entire day is set aside for further game drives upon the Serengeti. The Serengeti is the habitat for an abundance of wildlife, such as impala, buffalo, crocodile, and hippo, but is more well-known for its great migrating herds of zebra and wildebeest. The animals’ trek is determined by the rainfall and varies from year to year. In November and December, the animals move from the northern region dominated by woodlands and hills to the grassy plains of the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June the horde returns to the north. Apart from the migrating herds, we may have the chance to spot the predators such as leopard, cheetah, and lion, ever and always lurking close by. With our day’s adventure upon the plain drawing to a close, we wind our way to our lodge in anticipation of a delicious meal and a digestif perhaps by the fire with hyena slinking past drawn in by the scents of our repast. Our commodious rooms await to harbors our sleep and dreams of wild cats.
This will be our final full day spent on the Serengeti, the ‘Endless Plain’ in mother the tongue of the Maasai, warrior tribe who have called this scape of land their home for millennia, truly one of the most spectacular places on Earth. We continue to enjoy the wide range of animals and birds. By now, you will be an expert! Make sure you ask your guide to take you to the locations that you most desire! we take our dinner and rest at our carefully selected lodgings and rest in anticipation of our coming day with its safari to the highlands and, thence, into the largest caldera on Planet Earth.
After an early breakfast, we head out for another game drive on the Serengeti. We may be afforded the opportunity to spot the “Big Five” lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, and leopard before, after lunch at our lodge, we embark on our journey to the Ngorongoro Crater. The animals roam freely through the unfenced reserves offering us an uninterrupted game viewing experience. Arriving at the edge of the crater we have our first glimpse of what awaits us the following day glistening streams, open grassland, and a myriad number of animals. We spend the night at our lodge directly on the crater’s edge with the orange glow of sunset surrounding us as we drift off to sleep.
Early risers are rewarded with breath-taking views of the rising sun over the crater’s edge and, after our hearty breakfast, we drive down the adventurous track into the crater. This UNESCO
world heritage site formed millions of years ago in the massive explosion of a volcano once taller than Kilimanjaro is 610 metres deep and covers roughly around 304 square kilometres. Due to its dense animal population of approximately 25 000 large mammals, the crater offers the best game viewing of all the parks in Tanzania. In a matter of minutes, we will see wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, elephant, and some of the more than 500 bird species that here inhabit. With a little luck, we may catch a glimpse of the endangered black rhino through the grass. After lunch, we ascend again the steep walls of the crater and head onwards to our accommodation.
Tarangire, well known for its large elephant herds, seasonal swamps, savanna, and The Tarangire River which winds its way through the park inviting the wildlife to imbibe her soothing waters. From the open roof of our state-of-the-art safari truck, we experience the landscape as we seek sightings of the many animals including zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, elephant, and giraffe. It is possible we will catch a glimpse of a lion stalking its prey or leopards watching and relaxing in the trees above. After extensive game drives through the park, with our adventure coming to its close, we head back to Arusha, chock full of images of the African Wild.
