Serengeti and northern Tanzania

The Serengeti, meaning ‘endless plain’, entirely lives up to its name. Famed for its abundance of wildlife, it’s perhaps best known for the annual migration of over a million wildebeest and zebra. This is best viewed in the Serengeti and Grumeti when the herds are on the move from the end of June to September, and from November to February.

The Ngorongoro Crater was once a huge active volcano - probably as large as Kilimanjaro. After its eruption, its cone collapsed inwards leaving the caldera which, at over 10km wide, forms a natural home to an estimated 30,000 animals. This unique conservation area offers some of East Africa’s very best game viewing opportunities.

Lake Manyara National Park is relatively small (325 sq km) but stunningly beautiful. Bordered on one side by the lake and on the other by the dramatic rift valley escarpment, it has a large elephant and hippo population and its lion are famous for climbing trees. Birding is also excellent.

Aside from the famed Serengeti, northern Tanzania is also home to Lake Victoria. This lake is the largest lake in Africa and stretches across Tanzania, Uganda and even part of Kenya. Rarely visited by tourists, Lake Victoria is home to Rubondo Island National Park, a lush green untouched wilderness which provides a home to around 40 rehabilitated chimpanzees and an astounding amount of birdlife. Rubondo Island is Tanzania’s largest National Park and a great way to end to a Serengeti safari.
