Tarangire Safari

2 Days

Overview

Tarangire Safari
Go on a Tarangire Safari and experience the unrivalled landscape of open plains dotted with thousands of baobabs. Game viewing in Tarangire is largely affected by the presence of water, and during the dry season, many animals congregate here in search of it. On a Tarangire safari, you are also guaranteed to see large herds of elephants!

As a holiday destination, Tarangire is a lot less busy than other parks in the north of Tanzania. Going on a safari here offers you a chance to savor a real slice of Africa’s wilderness and solitude.

Ngorongoro Safari
While on a Ngorongoro Safari the most amazing experience is viewing the crater for the first time. As your vehicle slowly ascends through mountain forests you will feel it getting colder and colder. Eventually, you reach the rim, and dropping sharply off in front of you is Ngorongoro Crater.

Ngorongoro Crater is the best self-contained safari destination in the world. Often referred to as the ‘Garden of Eden’, the rich pasture and permanent water of the crater floor shelters a large population of animals. This is the site of a deep volcanic crater and the world’s largest unbroken caldera.
