Tarangire is a seasonal park and the long dry season (June to October) is the best time to visit, as during these months the park offers incredible wildlife viewing opportunities. You can expect to see plenty of big game, including large herds of elephant congregating along the riverbanks and waterholes. Tarangire is also one of the few parks in Tanzania where you can enjoy night safaris, as well as walking safaris and fly camping trips.

After breakfast, you'll be driven to Lake Manyara National Park, located beneath the cliffs of the Manyara Escarpment, on the edge of the Rift Valley. The alkaline soda of Lake Manyara, which covers 230 square kilometres, attracts pink flamingos and other bird life. At Lake Manyara National Park you’ll see resident hippo pods at the lake, tree-climbing lions, large herds of elephant, wildebeest, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, warthog and impala, plus you may be lucky enough to spot leopards and hyenas. There’s also a huge primate population including common monkey, vervet monkey and baboons. You can spot wildlife on a canoe safari on the lake.

You can expect to see a diverse range of wildlife, including buffalo, warthog, wildebeest, zebra, hippo and elephant. There’s also a huge population of predators: lion, hyena, jackal, cheetah and leopard. The resident population of black rhino is a real treat, as they’re very difficult to spot elsewhere in Tanzania.

Serengeti National Park

Day 5-7 Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, you’ll leave Ngorongoro and drive to the Serengeti, Tanzania’s most famous national park. The Serengeti offers some of the best wildlife viewing in Africa and is home to the greatest wildlife spectacle on Earth, the Great Migration. Every year, over two million wildebeest and zebra migrate north from Serengeti National Park to the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya. The herds must brave the perilous Mara River, which runs through the Masai Mara Game Reserve on the Kenyan side and Serengeti National Park on the Tanzanian side. They face treacherous water currents and dangerous predators as they cross the river in search of greener pastures. With crocodiles lurking in the muddy waters and lions, cheetahs, leopards and hyenas patrolling the river banks, this is a particularly dangerous time to be a wildebeest or a zebra. You can also enjoy bush walks in the Serengeti led by local Maasai warriors, providing an authentic walking safari experience.
Main Destination: Serengeti National Park
Best Time to Visit
June to February (Areas are best at different times)
