All our 8-day Africa wildlife safaris and tours, have been designed to give you more time in the Serengeti National Park and specifically include the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. This specific Africa safari and travel itinerary have been designed for visitors with more time on hand for a longer safari or tours. It specifically includes the Tarangire National Park and has been designed to offer you a total Tanzanian northern circuit safari experience, while attempting to keep your non-game-viewing travel time to a minimum.
This unforgettable Africa safari packages will take you to the Lake Manyara National Park, one of Tanzania’s most dramatically located wildlife areas, consisting of a shallow but huge soda lake, located at the foot of the Great Rift Valley’s western escarpment. The size of the park makes it perfect for a one-day game drive and is notably famous for its tree-climbing lions. This safari will also take you to the Serengeti National Park, a massive wilderness of 14500 square km, where every day brings a new landscape and a new adventure. It will also take you to the Ngorongoro Crater and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania, featuring one of the highest concentrations of game and arguably the densest population of predators and carnivores in Africa. Here you will witness an amazing spectacle of African wildlife – inside a self-contained world teeming with animals.
Finally, your safari will also take you to the Tarangire National Park, which once again features some of the greatest concentration of game in Tanzania – second only to the Ngorongoro Crater – but less crowded and unspoiled – possessing a wild and unkempt beauty.
