Description

Sitting at the northernmost point of Tanzania, sandwiched in between the East African Mountains and Lake Victoria, Serengeti National Park is the perfect destination for a 7-day safari!

Over the course of our one-week adventure, we will explore one of East Africa’s most iconic landscapes. Along the way, we will visit the eighth wonder of the natural world and get to see some of Africa’s most iconic wildlife.

However, the fun begins in Lake Manyara National Park. Here, we will get the chance to see hippos and buffaloes, among many other examples of African wildlife, all with the backdrop of the stunning lake.

From here, we head to the Ngorongoro Crater – the eight wonder of the natural world. Sprawling over 264 square kilometers (102 sq miles) and boasting walls that are 600 meters high (2,000 feet), the crater is truly immense.

Inside, we will find lakes, forests and plains as well as just about every type of animal that is native to East Africa, including the incredibly rare black rhino and Africa’s largest elephants. This is truly one of the most amazing days of the trip.

However, the fun does not stop here. From Ngorongoro, we will head to the vast Serengeti National Park. In the local language, serengeti means “endless plains” and over the course of four days here, we’ll find out exactly why.

The first two days will be spent heading out on game drives and getting the opportunity to see Africa’s iconic big cats (ie. lions, cheetahs and leopards) as well as zebras, hyenas and antelopes.

The last two days will be spent in search of the Great Migration of two million wildebeests. Depending on the time of year, this may take us to very different and unique parts of the massive park.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this once-in-a-lifetime safari experience in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park!
