Tanzania Wildlife Safaris
Our Tanzania Wildlife Safaris cover all the famous national parks on Tanzania's northern circuit game parks, which include the following Tanzanian National Parks:
The Serengeti National Park.
The Ngorongoro Crater Game Park.
The Tarangire National Park.
The Lake Manyara National Park.
The Arusha National Park.
Serengeti nationla park
The Serengeti National Park hosts the annual wildebeest migration across its grassy plains - arguably the world's greatest wildlife spectacle - this Serengeti National Park is without a doubt a defining image of Tanzania. here you can view the BIG 5 up close in a single game drive.
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area as a whole has much to offer but the jewel in its crown is, without a doubt, the crater floor - an area of 265 sq km, which is 610 meters deep and 19 km across. The rim of the crater is an astounding 2286 meters above sea level. The floor contains a small soda lake, called Lake Magadi and it is estimated that 30 000 animals are living in the crater, making it the most intensive safari game viewing area on earth! It was therefore very fittingly declared a World Heritage Site in 1978. A visit to Tanzania is simply incomplete without a safari visit to the park. .
Lake Manyara National Park is one of Tanzania's most dramatically located African wildlife animals areas, consisting of a shallow soda lake (covering two-thirds of the park) at the foot of the Great Rift Valley's western escarpment. Lake Manyara National Park's varied shoreline contains a wide variety of habitats, which include lush groundwater forests, a swampy fan delta, acacia woodlands and a small grassy plain. This varied habitat attracts a wide variety of wildlife animals, including one of Africa's largest concentrations of elephants, and the algae growing in the lake, attract large flocks of flamingos. This African National Wildlife Park therefore supports a great variety of animals. Lake Manyara's main safari attraction is its rich bird life, its tree-climbing lions and its hippos and other animals, which can be observed here, at very close range.
Tarangire national park
The Tarangire National Park is a diverse and picturesque African wildlife sanctuary and is located just southeast of Lake Manyara on the Tarangire River, from which it derived its name. During the annual dry season (from August to October), the 2600 sq km Tarangire National Park attracts one of the highest concentrations of wildlife animals in Tanzania. During this time, the River provides the only permanent water in the area and forms a "dry season retreat" for the animals of the southern Masailand in Tanzania. Safari activities are normally centered on game drives featuring excellent landscapes views of beautiful river trees forests, acacia woodlands, ancient African baobab trees and endless rolling hills. This alone makes the Tarangire National Park really worthwhile visiting. The park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Tanzania or even in Africa. This African national park is also home to three rare species of animals - the Greater Kudu, the Fringed-eared Oryx, as well as a few Ashy Starlings.
Arusha national park
The Arusha National Park, a small (137 sq km) but beautiful African park, is the closest Tanzanian National Wildlife Park to both the famous "safari town" of Arusha (29 km), as well as the Kilimanjaro International Airport, thus making it ideal for day safaris, even from Moshi (65 km). Not only is the wildlife in the Arusha National Park abundant, but it is also one of the most beautiful and topographically varied game reserves in Tanzania. The African Arusha National Park's three most significant features include the rugged Mount. Meru (Tanzania's second highest peak at 4566m), the notably different coloured Momela Lakes, and the 3km wide Ngurdoto Crater, which was formed about fifteen million years ago! The varied and beguiling animals and flora found in this game reserve are mainly determined by the different altitude and geography of these 3 "zones".
There are two types of safari.
1.Basic camping safari.
Camping is not only the best way of getting close to Africa, but it could also be the cheapest way to visit the great national parks of East Africa. Joining a budget safari is a great experience by itself! if you are a solo traveler we can put you in a group to share the cost.These safaris are suitable for any person who enjoys camping and or outdoor activities. Itineraries are of a superb standard and visit all national parks and areas of interest. We use good quality 4x4 land cruisers with shed viewing roof hatches, equipment is carried by a additional car (if number of participating clients requires). Our Safari driver/guides have good knowledge of conservation issues, fauna and flora. Camping trips are accompanied by a Safari chef cook who prepares 3 delicious meals daily. Camp assistants may be available on certain safaris according to the number of participating clients,Accommodation is mostly in modern, two-man tents with a sewn-in ground sheet,with a comfortable foam mattress spread on the ground sheet, table and camp chairs are also inluded (clients bring their own sleeping bags ). In some itineraries accommodation can be a combination of camping and Luxury or Mid-range lodges. We use public national parks campsites, with simple hot shower bathromms.
2. Luxury lodge safari
These are the equivalents of the western deluxe hotels.Lodge chains such as the Serena and Sopa and a few other privately owned lodges and camps keep a very high standard of service. Simpler lodges we use, such as the Rhino lodge, and wildlife lodges, these are good standard and also very comfortable.
Lodges and camps of this standard are situated in almost all parks and reserves and facilitate most safari itineraries. The vehicles used are safari land cruisers and land rovers with shed viewing roof hatches.
Eco-tourism, also known as Sustainable or Responsible Tourism, creates better communities to live in and better destinations to visit. It minimizes negative economic, environmental and social impacts. Boosted economies benefit the locals while improving working conditions and access to the tourism industry. An effective approach involves the community members in making decisions that will affect their way of life. With Responsible Tourism, travelers often enjoy otherwise remote locations while making positive contributions to the conservation of natural and cultural heritage. At times, there is also a volunteer component such as helping orphaned children, building new schools or even wildlife preservation. This is not a new idea, rather a concept that westerners learn from a very young age. We all remember that bear telling us, only you can prevent forest fires or the mantra of reduce, recycle, reuse. Teachings like these are the building blocks of Eco-tourism. We offer custom assistance to all; including individuals, families, school organizations, senior citizens and special interest groups.
