Tarangire offers an unparalleled game viewing. During the dry season elephants abound. Families of the pachyderms play around the ancient trunks of baobab trees & strip acacia bark from the thorn trees for their afternoon meal. Breath-taking views of the Maasai Steppe.

Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry riverbed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest & eland crowd the shrinking lagoons.

Designed to reflect the brilliance of Lake Manyara unique birdlife, the architectural motif melds swooping avian curves with the gentle concentric patterns of traditional Maasai Bomas while the vibrantly coloured wall frescoes depict the colourful intricacy of bird migratory patterns.

Ngorongoro is indeed a natural wonder, an extinct Volcano that collapsed around 25 million years ago thus forming a vast super bowl where almost every game can be spotted. You will have clear views from the top of the crater; this is the most exciting angle to feel what nature is.

You will see animals like buffalos, Zebras, wildebeest, gazelle that depend on the open grasslands in the crater. As these animals graze, the predators are also in the corner waiting to get their share.

Carnivores include; the black-manned lion, the leopard and hyena. You will see a soda lake which attracts countless water birds like flamingoes which is also a favorite place for carnivores to kill. Perhaps this is the reason why Ngorongoro is called the Garden of Eden.

Olduvai Gorge, in northern Tanzania, is internationally recognized for Louis and Mary Leakey famous discoveries of early humans and magnificent antiquities documenting the evolutionary history of our stone tool-using ancestors, vertebrate fauna & the environments over the last two million years.

Day 7

Game Drive at Serengeti National Park and Hot Air Balloon Ride

The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth. The essential features of climate, vegetation and fauna have barely changed in the past million years. Early man himself made an appearance in Olduvai Gorge about two million years ago. Some patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration are as old as the hills themselves.

It is the migration for which Serengeti is perhaps most famous. Over a million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras flow south from the northern hills to the southern plains for the short rains every October and November, and then swirl west and north after the long rains in April, May & June. So strong is the ancient instinct to move that no drought, gorge or crocodile infested river can hold them back.

The Wildebeest travel through a variety of parks, reserves & protected areas and through a variety of habitat. Join us to explore the different forms of vegetation and landscapes of the Serengeti ecosystem and meet some of their most fascinating inhabitants.
