We stay in beautiful lodges situated right in the game parks. Clients can use the safari to relax after the climb. The safari drives can be dusty, but the excitement of all the wildlife is very rewarding.
We will be using land cruisers that fit up to 6 people. Your vehicle will be driven by an experienced guide that can answer all your questions. The vehicles have a canopy that lifts and extends for everyone to stand and view the wildlife.
The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken crater on earth and claims the highest density of wildlife on the African continent. The view from the crater rim is breathtaking and descending deep into the belly of the crater will encounter almost every animal species found in east Africa. During this segment of the safari we spend time in a traditional Masai village.
Lake Manyara National Park provides excellent game watching including tree-climbing lions, baboons and antelope. The area is also known for water birds with a bounty of African flamingos. Time permitting we may visit the bustling market town of Mto-wa-Mbu.
The Tarangire River and National Park, south of Lake Manyara, is a huge wildlife retreat during the dry season. The river valley contains stunning views of the savanna and great varieties of large mammals such as kongoni, wildebeest and zebra. With any luck, safarists will also see rhino and leopard amongst a variety of gazelle, giraffe, elephant and impala.
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania’s signature park, covers nearly 15,000 square miles and spans into Kenya where it connects to the Masai reserve. The word Serengeti conjures images of wild African game in all its glory. The abundance of animals running at will creates an overwhelming experience and fulfills the dream of life before the “great white hunters”. The sheer mass of animals is both staggering and long remembered.
Olduvai Gorge Although calm as compared to the great safari parks, Olduvai Gorge is part of the Leakey’s famed archaeological discovery of the hominid that dates back 1.8 million years. Dig sites are still active for a good portion of the year and we visit the interpretive museum.
