What we love about Tanzania:
Chances are that you have dreamt of Africa, and when you did, you probably dreamt about the
Serengeti. Countless wildlife movies have been recorded in the Serengeti, and with good
reason: this is the home of the Great Migration and may very well be one of the last true
natural wonders on planet earth.
Serengeti National Park is a World Heritage Site teeming with wildlife: over 2 million ungulates,
4000 lions, 1000 leopard, 550 cheetahs and some 500 bird species inhabit an area close to
15,000 square kilometers in size.
Join us on a safari and explore the endless Serengeti plains
dotted with trees and kopjes from which majestic lions control their kingdom; gaze upon the
Great Migration in awe or find an elusive leopard in a riverine forest. Or perhaps see everything
from a bird’s-eye view and soar over the plains at sunrise during a hot air balloon safari.
Accommodation options come in every price range - the sound of lions roaring at night is
Ngorongoro Crater is a massive volcanic caldera located in Tanzania. It is part of the
Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) which is also a distinguished UNESCO World Heritage
Ngorongoro Crater is a scenic wildlife bowl. The scenic overlook provides a breath taking view
of the crater floor. However, it is the wildlife encounters on the crater floor that make
Ngorongoro Crater a true wonder. There are around 25,000 large mammals including elephant,
rhino, lion, leopard (usually on crater rim) buffalo and hippo accounting for six of the Big Seven.
The majority of the 25,000 large mammals are ungulates with the highlight being the
elephants. These elephants have large tusks and are part of the “Big Tuskers” of Africa.
The caldera is often considered an enclosed area that prevents animals from leaving, however
this is not the case. Wildebeests and zebra migrate through the crater annually with only small
populations remaining year round. The buffaloes migrate into the crater during the rainy
Other notable wildlife include:
The lion is the king of beast and a favorite of travelers. Ngorongoro Crater has one of the
densest populations of lions making a sighting probable. One of the greatest concerns for
Ngorongoro Crater is the delcine in the lion population.
In Ngorongoro Crater the animals are one with visitors allowing for close encounters. The
statistical significance combined with the intimate encounters with wildlife truly make
Ngorongoro a “natural wonder.”
