Our 5-day Big Five Safari in Tanzania is by far our most unique safari, as it provides the best opportunity to see Africa’s most iconic animals. Early big game hunters referred to the five African species as the “Big Five” because they believed they were the most challenging and hazardous to stalk on foot. African elephant, lion, leopard, Cape buffalo, and rhinoceros are some of these creatures. Traditionally, those animals are still commonly found throughout South, Southern, and East Africa, and their presence in a national park or game reserve adds an exhilarating edge to your safari experience.

Tarangire National Park is almost 3000 sq km in size and is probably best known for its huge numbers of elephants and baobab trees. The name of the park comes from the Tarangire River which crosses through the park. Tarangire is especially spectacular during the dry season (June – November) as wildlife concentrations rival that of the Serengeti. This is because enormous populations of elephants and other animals are drawn to the Tarangire River as their only source of water. With its varied habitats and permanent water in the Tarangire River, the park is home to over 2000 elephants and 500 bird species.

The endless plains of Serengeti are also the setting for the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle, the 1.5 million wildebeest migration in search of fresh pastures. Each year, this huge herd of wildebeest (along with over 200,000 zebras and gazelles) migrates in a clockwise direction around the Serengeti. They go up to the Masai Mara in Kenya and then back down to the Serengeti to have their young (over 8000 wildebeest are born a day between mid-February and mid-March). Each year, they trek over 2,500 km and are constantly threatened and followed by some of Africa’s greatest predators. Depending on the time of your visit, your driver guide will be able to share with you where the herd’s current location is.

The Central Serengeti offers superb game viewing all year round due to its abundance of resident animals. Specifically, the Seronera River Valley in Central Serengeti is a ‘must see’ on every safari regardless of the specific month of travel. Game viewing in Central Serengeti is at its best during the dry season (June – November), as resident animals are more concentrated in the immediate area due to the lack of water on the plains. Resident herbivores include impala, buffalo, hippo, warthog, topi, hartebeest and giraffe. Resident carnivores include lions and leopards.

Often called the eighth Natural Wonder of the World, the Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact crater in the world. About 2 million years ago, the Ngorongoro volcano erupted and its walls collapsed. The volcano floor sank to create a natural enclosure with its 600 m tall walls. Now, at over 19 km wide, Ngorongoro Crater is filled with great areas of acacia forest, hippo-filled swamps and open grasslands. These different habitats contain over 30,000 animals, including elephants, warthogs, flamingoes, magnificent birdlife, the rare black rhinoceros and all the predatory cats. The Maasai can also be seen grazing their cattle alongside the buffalo and wildebeest.
