Departing from Arusha, our destination initially takes us Tarangire National Park, a hidden gem where far fewer tourists venture, yet the park has a dense and alluring wildlife population. Thousands of animals including elephant, buffalo and giraffe migrate to the Tarangire River in search of water, and where lion, leopard and other predators naturally follow this procession ensuring some great wildlife experiences. With impressive landscapes dominated by baobab trees – or "upside down" trees as they are fondly known, an enormous elephant population and over 550 varieties of bird, it makes an ideal start to the safari. The following day takes us to Ngorongoro Crater to explore this incredible World Heritage Site and Natural Wonder of the World for more spectacular game viewing with its dramatic crater backdrop.
After a visit to Olduvai Gorge and the chance to wonder at the hominid remains discovered here in the 1950’s, we continue to the endless Serengeti plains. The season will dictate our camp destinations as the migration follows its circular path through here and to neighbouring Masai Mara. More than 3m large mammals are spread over these vast grasslands and we may see the fascinating spectacle of the annual wildebeest migration where 1.25m wildebeest trek in search of prime grazing as they plod their way through grass–rich plains, crossing croc–infested rivers. Aside from these massive herds, look out for zebra, gazelle and buck, elephant and predators from lion, leopard, cheetah and hyena. Watching this mind–boggling spectacle from the air in a hot–air balloon flight from a birds–eye view gives a very different but hugely rewarding perspective.
Today we make our way back to Arusha, it’s a long road transfer, or alternatively upgrade for a regional flight.edit me
