The Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater, Mount Kilimanjaro, the Rift Valley and Zanzibar are some of the best known place names in Africa. You can see them all on a Tanzania safari with an expert private guide . This is a country with immense wildlife reserves where enormous numbers of animals gather and migrate.
The wildebeest migration is the world’s largest animal migration as two million wildebeest, zebra and antelope make their way on an epic 1,000 mile journey from the southern Serengeti plains crossing crocodile infested rivers into Kenya before returning southwards back to the Serengeti. During three chaotic weeks in February they drop 100,000 calves which start walking within minutes and join the herd as it moves. This is just one of many wonders that you can enjoy on your Tanzania safari.
The best way to see the migration is from a small luxury mobile camp that is moved every few weeks to follow the path of the migrating herds. The camp is located on a private site surrounded by the limitless Serengeti plains dotted with acacia trees and huge rocky outcrops where lion and leopard lurk. Your own private vehicle and expert guide enables you to explore at your own pace, concentrating on what interests you the most.
Next to the Serengeti is the 8,000 foot high Ngorongoro Crater. From your luxurious base at Ngorongoro Crater lodge visit the crater floor where 20,000 animals roam free. Explore the Crater with your private guide before seeing the lakes of the Great African Rift Valley.
