Tarangire National Park is best known for its baobab trees and its year-round population of elephants, where it is common to see herds of up to 300 elephants of all ages and sizes. However, predators are also well represented, along with over 550 different species of birds, the most breeding species in one habitat anywhere in the world. It is the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem and the one place in Tanzania where fringe-eared oryx and the long-necked gerenuk can be observed. Migratory wildebeest, zebra, and other thirsty nomads crowd the shrinking lagoons. Lions early wait for the next chance to hunt

Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro crater is known as the eighth wonder of the world!!

The big five animals —lion, leopard, elephant, black rhinoceros, and African buffalo—are indeed enormous. In Ngorongoro crater, National Park, it’s possible to see all the big five.
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA), measuring 8,300 square kilometers, is the only place on earth where humankind and wild animals co-exist in harmony.  Ngorongoro crater sinks to a depth of 610 meters, with a base area covering 260 square kilometers. The height of the original volcano must have ranged between 4,500 to 5,800 meters high. Apart from the central caldera, Ngorongoro Crater has two volcanic Olmoti and Empakai, the former famous for their stunning waterfalls, and the latter holding a deep lake and lush, green walls.
Down in the creator, there are so many scenes of unimaginable abundance. `wildebeest, zebra buffalo, and grant’s gazelle are present in great numbers, but there are also land, warthog, hartebeest, bushbuck, waterbuck, and Bohor reedbuck.

Day 3: Ngorongoro to Central Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, we will head toward the Serengeti National Park. The Great Migration, is a column of wildebeest 24 miles( 40km) long, shuffling across the plains two or three abreast, all to the move searching for fresh, green grass. Now imagine that it takes more than two weeks for that column of animals to cross a single spot. Image them bunched together in protective her, giving birth, or scrambling in a panic to escape the jaws of a snapping crocodile. Also, lions and hyenas prow the scene looking for the weakest animal or the lone straggler separated from its herd. Only now have you visualized the magnificent phenomenon of the Great Serengeti Migration?

Wildebeest, Day 6: Western Serengeti National Park


Start the day with a full day game drive in the Western Corridor after breakfast. The key feature of the Western Corridor is the Grumeti and Mbalageti Rivers, which run almost parallel to each other. Each river supports a band of evergreen forest. The rivers support a permanent population of game such as zebra, wildebeest, all kinds of predators and a variety of birds. In addition, it is possible to find large herds of hippopotamus and giant crocodiles in the Grumeti River. Generally, the wildebeest gather around waterholes in the morning in such densities that they look like ants swarming around a nest.
