This 4-day safari will take you to the most famous National Parks in the Northern Tanzania Circuit. You will explore Tanzania’s wildlife, nature, and culture. The safari covers the great Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Lake Manyara National Park, and Serengeti National Park.
LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK
Game viewing time: 6 - 7 hours

After a nice breakfast, our drivers will pick you up at 8:30 - 9:00 am with the picnic lunch boxes heading directly to Manyara National park for an extended game drive. Lake Manyara National Park is known for the flamingos that inhabit the lake. During the wet season they inhabit the edges of the lake in flocks of thousands but they are not so present during the dry season. Leopards, East African lions, cheetahs, elephants, blue monkeys, dik-dik, gazelles, hippopotamus, Masai giraffe, impala, zebras and many more wild animals inhabit this park and many can be seen throughout the year. There is a hippo pond at one end of the park where visitors can get out of their cars and observe from a safe distance. The leopards and lions are both known to lounge in the trees while not hunting for prey.

SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

Game viewing time: 6 hours
After breakfast, the tour departs between 08:30 - 09:00. After breakfast your private guide will pick you up from the Hotel and your private safari with private 4x4 safari vehicle starts. The first park visited is 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 evening game drive in the Serengeti national park between 15:00 - 17:00hours.
Accommodation: Serengeti Acacia Camp (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner)
Distance: 85 km
Game viewing time: 5 – 6 hours
Today, you will be transferred to Ngorongoro Conservation Area after the breakfast for a crater tour. Ngorongoro Supported by a year-round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro conservation Area supports a vast 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, it’s 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.
Accommodation: Baghayo Garden Suites (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner)
