Vacation Activities Highlight
Northern Tanzania safari is an essential destination on everyone's travel list. The Serengeti's Great Migration is one of the most amazing wildlife spectacles, whilst being on safari on the Crater floor of the extinct volcano at Ngorongoro is a game viewing environment that has no equal. Away from the tourist hotspots, quieter parks such as Tarangire are superb for game viewing yet often overlooked to their more famous neighbors. Lake Manyara's game concentrations are not nearly as high as surrounding parks but there are a number of unique species that are reason to safari here.

When the dry season begins at the end of June, the annual migration commences as the animals move in search of food pasture. The Serengeti is also famous for cheetahs, leopards and lions, some of which migrate with the wildebeests while others remain in the central plain. The elephant population in Serengeti was decimated by poaching, estimated to have fallen fivefold during the 1970 - 80s, since then, the numbers have slowly increased. Birdlife is prolific in the National Park and includes various species of kingfishers, sunbirds and rollers, ostriches, egrets, herons, storks, ibises, spoonbills and ducks.
