Serengeti National Park is probably the most famous and most visited reserve in Tanzania. It is also the largest, with 14,763 square kilometers of protected area bordering Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve. Its far-reaching plains of endless grass, tinged with the twisted shadows of acacia trees, have made it the quintessential image of a wild and untarnished Africa.

Mbalageti is actually a word from the old Maa language meaning “wildebeest”; however, the word is no longer in use. Today Mbalageti refers to the seasonal river. Enjoy your full day of game viewing!
Enjoy a full day of game driving within the Serengeti plains in your 4×4 Land Cruiser. Between June and August, the wildebeest migration comes off the southern plains and heads through the central and western Serengeti on its way north.
The Grumeti River flows through the western corridor and it is this, and the immense crocodiles that it contains, that presents a formidable barrier to the animal herds. Even if the river is fairly low the animals are not safe. Drawn to the river in search of water, they run a substantial risk of finding a crocodile in their drink. Crocs and wildebeest aside, the western corridor is an interesting area and one that contains good game and bird life year round.
The Ngorongoro Crater is often called “Africa’s Eden” and the “8th Natural Wonder of the World”. A visit to the crater is the main draw for tourists coming to Tanzania and a definite world-class attraction. Within the crater rim, large herds of zebra and wildebeest graze nearby while sleeping lions laze in the sun. At dawn, the endangered black rhino returns to the thick cover of the crater forests after grazing on dew-laden grass in the morning mist. Just outside the crater’s ridge, tall Maasai tribesman herds their cattle and goats over green pastures through the highland slopes, living alongside the wildlife as they have for centuries. Descend to the rim of the crater. Dinner and your overnight stay will be at Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge.

This park retains a real air of undiscovered Africa, particularly in its southern regions. Just a two-hour drive away from Arusha, it lies a little distance to the southeast of Lake Manyara and covers an area of approximately 2,850 square kilometers. It is named after the Tarangire River that flows through the park. The swamps, tinged green year round, are the home for 550 bird varieties – the largest number of species in one habitat anywhere in the world. On the drier ground, the Kori bustard – the heaviest flying bird – can be found.
Enjoy your full day of game viewing at Tarangire National Park as well as your dinner and overnight stay at Burunge Tented Camp.

Amboseli embodies five main wildlife habitats, plus a generally dry lakebed – Lake Amboseli. These are open plains, extensive stands of yellow-barked acacia woodland, rocky, lava-strewn thorn bush country, swamps and marshes and, at the western end of the reserve above Namanga, the massif of Ol Doinyo Orok rising to over 2,760m (8.300ft) (and still for the most part zoologically unexplored). Your dinner and overnight will be at the Kibo Tented Camp.
Enjoy your morning and afternoon game drives in Amboseli National Park. This park is famous for being the best place in Africa to get close to free-ranging elephants and other wildlife species. Other attractions in the park include opportunities to meet the local Masai people and spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in the world.
Amboseli features big skies and long horizons combined with swampy springs and dry and dusty earth that have been trampled by hundreds of thousands of animals. It has an endless underground water supply filtered through thousands of feet of volcanic rock from Kilimanjaro’s ice cap, which funnels into two clear water springs in the heart of the park.
