About 6 Days Tanzania Safari – Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Lake Manyara
Tarangire National Park – 1 Night
We begin our 6 Days Tanzania Safari with a visit to Tarangire National Park. Tarangire National Park covers an
undulating area of 2,600km2, between the plains of the Maasai Steppe to the south-east, and the lakes of the Great Rift Valley to the north and west. The northern part of Tarangire is dominated by the perennial Tarangire River, which flows through increasingly incised ravines until it leaves the north-western corner of the park to flow into Lake Burungi. In the south are a series of vast ‘swamps’ which dry into verdant plains during the dry season. In the dry season (July to October). It’s a place where elephants dot the plains like cattle, and where lion roars and zebra barks fill the night.
Where to stay in Tarangire National Park
During our 6 Days Tanzania Safari we shall spend our first night at Tarangire Sopa Lodge. Built to blend in with the vastness of its surroundings, Tarangire Sopa Lodge lies hidden among the kopjes, ancient baobab and grasses of the Tarangire National Park – home to the greatest concentration of elephants in Africa. Many can be seen around the lodge, allowing visitors a close encounter. Note similar lodge can be suggested if at the time of booking this one doesn’t have availability. Or in the event that you prefer another one do not hesitate to recommend it.
Serengeti National Park – 2 Nights
Few people forget their first encounter with the Serengeti. Perhaps it’s the view from Naabi Hill at the park’s entrance, from where the grasslands appear to stretch to the ends of the earth. Or maybe it’s a coalition of lions stalking across open plains, their manes catching the breeze. Or it could be wildebeest and zebra migrating in their millions, following the ancient rhythm of Africa’s seasons. Whatever it is, welcome to one of the greatest wildlife-watching destinations on earth.
At 14,763 sq km, the Serengeti is an epic place, and it’s renowned for its predators, especially lions, leopards and cheetahs, with plenty of elephants in residence, too. A few black rhinos around Moru Kopjes offer a chance to glimpse all of the Big Five (lion, elephant, rhino, leopard and buffalo), although the rhinos are very rarely seen. It’s also an incredible birdwatching destination, with over 500 species to spot.
Where to stay in Serengeti National Park
During our 6 Days Tanzania Safari we shall spend 2 nights at Serengeti’s Katikati Tented Camp. Kati Kati is a tented camp strategically situated in central Serengeti, ideal for exploring the extensive Serengeti plains. The camp offers
comfortable accommodation together with the unique opportunity to enjoy a real safari experience on a camp. In its comfortable tents one will feel completely immersed in the surroundings and one can enjoy the rich animal life and vegetation of the area. An original form of accommodation that resembles the old camps of the first explorers in Africa, with all the commodities of today. Located a two-hour drive along a panoramic route from the Olduvai Museum and the river Grumeti, two of the indispensable visits for all travelers to Tanzania. The camp has been designed to cause a minimum impact on the environment. All of the infrastructures is mobile and the philosophy of the company is not to leave anything behind. Note similar lodge can be suggested if at the time of booking this one doesn’t have availability. Or in the event that you prefer another one do not hesitate to recommend it.
Ngorongoro Crater – 2 Nights
Pick a superlative: amazing, incredible, breathtaking…they all apply to the stunning, ethereal blue-green vistas of the Ngorongoro Crater. But as wonderful as the views are from above, the real magic happens when you get down inside and drive among an unparalleled concentration of wildlife, including the highest density of both lions and
overall predators in Africa. One of the continent’s premier attractions, this renowned natural wonder is deservedly a Unesco World Heritage Site.
Where to stay in Ngorongoro.
Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge is located in the edges of the Ngorongoro crater. The 74 guest rooms and one suite at Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge blend the almost indescribable beauty and magnitude of the Ngorongoro Crater with unparalleled standards for comfort and service. Clinging to the Crater rim beneath river stone and a cloak of native vines, our accommodation is so seamlessly entwined with the landscape, guests can’t help but feel as one with the natural surroundings. With a private stone balcony opening onto the blue-green vastness of the Crater floor below, it’s like you’re living alone in the “cradle of mankind.”
Interiors feature brass lamps, embossed leather headboards, wildwood mirrors, Maasai carvings, and stylized cave paintings. The guest experience is enhanced with modern comforts like complimentary wireless Internet and 24-hour room service.

On night two we shall be at Endoro Lodge. This lodge is of the beaten track, down quite the rough dirt track, but we shall get there. The lodge is nestled in the hills of Karatu, surrounded by lush green beauty! The views from every angle were incredible.
Lake Manyara National Park – 1 Night.
Lake Manyara National Park is one of Tanzania’s smaller and most underrated parks. While it may lack the size and variety of other northern-circuit destinations (there’s pretty much one main north-south route through the park), its vegetation is diverse, ranging from savannah to marsh to evergreen forest (11 ecosystems in all) and it supports one of the highest biomass densities of large mammals in the world. The chance to see elephant families moving
through the forest or Lake Manyara’s famous population of tree-climbing lions (although sighting them is becoming increasingly rare) is alone reason enough to come.
The dramatic western escarpment of the Rift Valley forms the park’s western border. To the east is the alkaline Lake Manyara, which covers one-third of the park but shrinks considerably in the dry season. During the rains, the lake hosts millions of flamingos and other birdlife.
