In our Tanzania Migration Safaris the emphasis is to spend more time in the Ndutu Conservation area during the months of January thru March which is the birthing season of the wildebeest. During April through June, the Central and Northern Serengeti becomes the primary focus as the migration moves North towards Masai Mara.

TANZANIA PARKS & ATTRACTIONS

Named after the Masai word ‘Siringet’ for endless plains of short and long grass, the Serengeti covers an area of approximately 9200 sq miles. The plains support a large variety of wildlife ranging from lions, cheetahs, wildebeest, and gazelles and may other species. The annual migration moves northwards across the Mara River and this ‘the last great spectacle of nature’ has a cast that includes around millions of wildebeest, gazelle and an assortment of zebra. It begins in June with the return leg on October/November. The Serengeti centers on acacia savannah, with dry grasslands to the south, a western corridor of wooded highland that fronts Lake Victoria and the wooded grasslands along the Grumeti and Mara Rivers.

Ngorongoro conservation area covers over 5149 sq miles and one of the most spectacular sights you are ever likely to see while on safari lies in the Ngorongoro Crater. The crater is a microcosm of the East African savannah and a natural wonder unique in the world. Upon descent to the crater floor you are treated to a magical experience where herds of zebra rub shoulders with wildebeest, gazelle and buffalo. The crater provides a great chance of seeing some of Africa’s biggest bull elephants and many predators among a myriad of other animals. Olduvai Gorge is famous for its fossil finds – about 150 species of prehistoric mammals including the Dr. Leakey’s discovery of 400 fragments of a skull. A small museum dsiplays a number of copies of the finds. Olduvai gains its name from the Masai word for the wild sisal that is prolific here.

Located approximately 100 miles west of Arusha town, Lake Manyara covers over 200 miles of incredible beauty set in diverse terrain. The open grasslands, forest and the dominant red western rift escarpment provide a stunning backdrop to the Lake itself. Lake Manyara is a beautiful park and is well known for its tree climbing lions, elephants, hippos, flamingos and large troops of baboons. A short visit to this park will greatly diversify your safari experience as the lush green jungle habitat is of stark contrast to other parks you will visit during your safari.

Tarangire National Park covers an area of approximately 1700 sq miles and is p art of a far larger migratory ecosystem (that includes Lake Manyara). The Tarangire River that flows through the center of the park. Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry riverbed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest, crowd the shrinking lagoons. It’s is the largest concentration of wildlife outside of the Serengeti ecosystem-a smorgasbord for predators-and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as fringe eared oryx and long necked gerenuk are regularly observed. Gentle rolling hills scattered with giant baobab trees, open acacia woodlands and seasonal swamps provide beautiful, serene settings for wildlife photography.
