Various wildlife species drink from the river, which serves as the animals’ primary source of water, particularly during the dry season.
From Tarangire we precede to Serengeti, it is located in Northern Tanzania and is one of the Tanzanian national parks that make the greater North a circuit. The northern tourist corridor includes the Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park, and the Greater Serengeti National Park. Serengeti National Park/Serengeti Tanzania National Park/Serengeti Park Tanzania was named after the Masai word Siringet, which means “open endless plain” in Masai. The park shares the Serengeti ecosystem with Ngorongoro in the south and Masai Mara in the north. And then to the vast expanses of highland plains, savanna, savanna woodlands, and forests make up the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It includes the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, the largest caldera in the world, and was established in 1959 as a multiple land use area where wildlife coexists with semi-nomadic Masai pastoralists who practice traditional livestock grazing. Due to the presence of globally endangered species, the abundance of wildlife in the area, and the yearly migration of wildebeest, zebra, gazelles, and other animals into the northern plains, the property is significant for the conservation of biodiversity on a global scale.
After a brief briefing, you will be picked up in the morning and taken to the Tarangire National Park. Huge elephant herds can be found in the park, which has a savannah, baobab trees, seasonal swamps, and lagoons. The Tarangire River attracts a variety of animals, including giraffes, bushbucks, and hartebeests as well as the peculiar-looking gerenuk and fringe-eared oryx. Additionally, the park is home to buffaloes, zebras, and wildebeests, all of which are constantly being closely watched by a variety of predators like lions. Although cheetahs are rarely seen, leopards are occasionally sighted. You can take in the scenery and observe the animals from the safari vehicle’s open roof. You’ll depart the park in the late afternoon and travel to a nearby campsite where you’ll pitch a tent for the night.
You will depart the vicinity of Tarangire National Park after breakfast and travel to Mto wa Mbu, a multiethnic village. Ol Doinyo Lengai, known as “the holy mountain” by the Masai, can be seen in the distance as you travel from here along a stunning but extremely rough gravel road that follows the Rift Valley Escarpment. The lovely Masai village of Ngare Sero, an oasis in the hot and dusty Rift Valley, is where we’re going today. Thousands of flamingos breeding and feeding on the alkaline Lake Natron’s algae will be visible in the distance as a pink glow. Before returning to the campsite for the night, you will walk to a nearby waterfall with a Masai guide in the afternoon.
After leaving early in the morning, your vehicle will ascend out of the Rift Valley and take you along thrilling dirt roads with breathtaking views until it reaches the Serengeti’s grassy plains by noon. The Masai word for Serengeti, “endless plains,” describes the grassland savannah that stretches to the horizon. The largest animal migration in the world takes place in Tanzania’s most well-known park, the Serengeti, where thousands of animals travel in search of new grass and water. You will spend the night at a campsite in the park’s northern or central region.
Game viewing is the Serengeti National Park’s only activity for the day. Depending on where you stopped last night, you will either go on a full day game drive or join early morning and late afternoon drives in the Seronera region. Huge herds of zebras and wildebeests can be seen from December through May, and between January and March, calf- and foal-birthing occurs. Additionally, the Seronera region is the best location to see the nocturnal, elusive leopard.
Another game drive in the Serengeti is scheduled for the morning, and you might see some animals you haven’t seen before. In the morning, before the temperatures soar around noon, animals are typically more active. You will depart the Serengeti plains after lunch and travel to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area’s highlands. You will set up camp at a site with a view of the erupted volcano right on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater.
Get up and shine! It is time to get up at dawn to descend the crater’s steep path, which is 600 meters deep. The slopes are forested, but soon the scenery transforms into a Savannah with the sporadic presence of an acacia tree. The crater’s wildlife is breathtaking, and if you’re lucky, you might see one of the “Big Five” animals, which include the lion, elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros, and leopard. Warthogs, wildebeests, zebras, hippos, and some of the region’s 500+ bird species should also be visible. You will travel to Mto wa Mbu, where you will spend the night on a campsite, after spending the entire morning watching wildlife and having a picnic lunch in the crater.
