This 7 Day Wildlife Tanzania Big Five Safari includes a Wildebeest Migration tour while finding African Big Five, the Lion, Leopard, and Cheetahs.
Tanzania Big Five Safari - Tanzania is home to the five most dangerous species to hunt on foot: rhinoceros, elephant, buffalo, lion, and leopard on the open savannah on this awesome big five safari. If there’s one thing that makes a safari unsurpassed, it is the ability to capture amazing scenes and portraits of the rich wildlife including the big 5 animals.
Even if you are only hunting these animals through the lens of your camera, the Big Five still have the power to evoke awe and a sense of respect verging on fear. Each time you get up close to one of these iconic creatures you experience a real thrill of adventure (and a sense of your own microscopic importance to the planet).
Welcome to Tanzania:
You will be met upon arrival at the airport by our driver who will guide you to the waiting vehicle and load your luggage then drive you to Arusha for the rest of your stay. Depending on your arrival time the day can be spent at the swimming pool relaxing or explore the city of Arusha.
After a safari briefing in the morning and an approximate 2-hour drive, you will arrive at the Tarangire National Park. Giant baobab trees, bush savannah, and the seasonal marshes add to the wonder of this nature reserve. The Tarangire National Park is considered as one of the best places to view elephants up close, not only because there are thousands of animals but also because they are not disturbed by the presence of vehicles.
You will have two days one night in Tarangire, 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 now and then but cheetahs are rarely spotted. From the open roof of the safari vehicle, you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. In the late afternoon, you will leave the park and drive to the lodge where you will overnight.
The Tanzania Big Five Safari starts here.
After breakfast, depart for Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. Then head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species. Arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti national park.
You will spend two full days in different places and time looking for wildlife of all types that will make you have the best travel experience in Tanzania.
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 a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to over 20,000 animals.
Keep on Tanzania Big Five Safari.
After an early breakfast, you will descend into 600 meters Ngorongoro Crater floor to view wildlife. Supported by a year-round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro conservation Area supports avast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs, and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos, and other water birds can usually be seen here. Late afternoon drive to the lodge for overnight.
After breakfast, you will travel from the Ngorongoro Area to the Lake Manyara National Park.
The park is known for its over 400 bird species, primate-filled forests, and grassy plains. A large area of the park is covered by the alkaline Lake Manyara, the seasonal breeding grounds for large colonies of flamingos, and many more waterfowls. The park is also home to giraffes, hippos, wildebeests, impalas, and groups of noisy monkeys and baboons. After an extensive game drive, you will travel to Arusha where you will spend the night.
End of Tanzania Big Five Safari.
After a leisurely breakfast, you will be dropped off at the airport for departure.
