Taste of Tanzania Safari - spotting the ‘Big 5’ animals- elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, and rhinoceros - is the goal of every safari traveler, and there is no other place in the world you are more likely to encounter the Safari ‘Big 5’ in the wild than Tanzania's famous national parks. Tanzania boasts the worlds’ highest density of large predators and the largest population of endangered.
Black Rhino, both in the mysterious Ngorongoro Crater, and Africa’s best location to enjoy elephants, the unmistakable Tarangire National Park. Within Tanzania’s borders lies 80 percent of the Serengeti savanna, home to the Great Migration, where millions of herding zebra and wildebeest make their seasonal pilgrimage in an awesome and unparalleled spectacle.
Welcome in 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 breakfast in Arusha you will travel to the Tarangire National Park. This park with its huge baobab trees, the perennial Tarangire River and seasonal swamps is home to the largest elephant herds in northern Tanzania. Animals gather at the river and you should be able to see elephants, giraffes, bushbucks, hartebeests, dik-diks, waterbucks, warthogs and reedbucks all year round. Furthermore 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. After an extensive game drive, you will leave the park in the late afternoon and drive to the Lodge, where you will spend the night.
The Taste of Tanzania Safari starts here.
After an early start you will make your way to the cooler regions of the Ngorongoro highlands. The Ngorongoro Crater is almost 600 m deep, approximately 20 km wide and the massive caldera is home to an amazing variety of animals. On your game drive you have the possibility of seeing all different kinds of mammals ranging from the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard – to Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles and mountain reedbucks. You might also see spotted hyenas and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After a picnic lunch in the crater and some more game viewing, you will leave the crater in the afternoon and travel back to Karatu, where you will overnight.
Keep on Taste of Tanzania Safari
After breakfast, you will leave the highlands and continue to Lake Manyara National Park, one of the smallest but most diverse parks in Tanzania. The shallow and alkaline Lake Manyara covers a large area of the park and it is the seasonal home to thousands of flamingos – an awesome (pink) sight. However more than 500 other bird species are also found here as well as some wonderful mammals. Troops of monkeys live in the forests, giraffes, buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests on the grassy plains and elephants and lions in the acacia woodlands. After an intensive game drive and a picnic lunch, you will leave the park to arrive in Arusha by the late afternoon.
