SAFARI OVERVIEW

Visiting three incredible destinations, this photo safari gives you an insight on some of the best wildlife Tanzania has to offer. First, this safari takes you into the famous Ngorongoro Crater that is home to thousands of animals. Flamingos, Zebra, Giraffe, Black Rhino, Lion, Hyena, and so much more call this place their home. Moving West, and into the Serengeti, you can keep your cameras ready, because the wildlife thrives in the entire area.

 

Our next destination is where we will come across the Wildebeests in the open plains giving birth and nurturing their new born calves. This is also when predators are thriving with all of the easy prey around. 

The final destination of this tour is Central Serengeti where guests will be overwhelmed with wildlife, with the lodge situated right in the middle of the action. Known for its incredible big cat population, Lion and Leopard are spotted regularly. Also keep a look out for all of your favourite Big 5 animals.
