ABOUT SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK


 FOR YOUR INFORMATION!
 

The Serengeti is the most famous of Tanzania's national parks located on the northern circuit of safari itineraries.The park is renowned for its annual migration of over 1.5 million wildebeest and usually accompanied by about 250,000 zebras and 200,000 gazelles.  Ceaseless columns of wildebeest swarm into the Serengeti, blanking the plains on their way to Maasai Mara, thus making a safari to the Serengeti well worth it.  The massive Serengeti is 14763 sq. km of endless rolls of plains dotted by kopjes (rock outcrops), and patches of flat-topped acacias, woodland, swamps and lakes. The word Serengeti itself is a Masaai word for "endless plains". It provides sanctuary to the highest concentration of wildlife in the world.  It is home to about 4 million animals. As you travel on, you gradually encounter increasing numbers of wildlife. There are about 35 species of savannah animals to see along with many of the 500-odd species of birds. In June or July one can witness this spectacular annual migration in search of water and food as the season change. In their wake, follow the predators: lion, cheetah, hyena and hunting dogs with vultures circling overhead.


The Great Migration

Tanzania's largest national parks have very little water, so the migration and general location of most of the animals is linked to rainfall patterns.  The Serengeti migration is non-stop taking place between 9-11 months of each year as described below.


Serengeti Migration Map

Best time to visit

Safaris planned with the intention to follow the great migration note that December to July is the best time - see details above. However, for those wanting to see predators June to October is recommended.


How to get there

Once in the country, the Serengeti can be reached both by air and road. There are scheduled and charter flights from Arusha town, Lake Manyara and Mwanza. Driving by road from Arusha takes about 8 hours over a distance of about 320km. The Kilimanjaro airport in Arusha is the closest international airport to the park and visitors can take any of the internal flights to the Serengeti airstrips at Seronera or Kirawira.


Olduvai Gorge

Olduvai Gorge is situated in the eastern Serengeti and it is about (48 km) long.  The gorge is  referred to as “The Cradle of Mankind” and it is also locally called "Oldupai", a name given by the Maasai for the sisal growing that is grown in the gorge.  It is here in 1959 the dedicated Doctors Louis and Mary Leakey discovered the skull of Zinjanthropus Man believed to have lived 1.75 million years ago.  In addition fossils from prehistoric animals that lived around the same period were discovered.  The George Museum exhibits their methods and remarkable finds and it is also a resting place suitable for picnic lunch whilst on a safari. The Gorge is located on the route between Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti and is part of many itineraries.

ABOUT THE NGORONGORO CRATER


 FOR YOUR INFORMATION!

 

The immense volcanic Ngorongoro crater, along the northern circuit in Tanzania, is the world's largest unbroken caldera, also described as  the "Eighth Wonder of the World". The crater along with other places of interest is located in the Ngorongoro conservation area which is a  protected world heritage site and in the conservation area over 42,000 Maasai  live and farm in harmony with wild and dangerous animals.  The gigantic depression is 19km wide volcanic crater surrounded by towering steep walls and sheltering forests, grassland, fresh springs and a large lake called Lake Magadi well known for its flamingos.  For any visitor a breathtaking and unforgettable moment is when you first set your eyes on the crater about 600m below the crater rim.


The Ngorongoro Crater is home to large task elephants, black rhinoceros, lions, zebras, hyenas, herds of wildebeest, eland, Thompson's gazelle, reedbuck and more than a 100 species of bird, all living in perfect balance in this self contained environment. Visitors can view these animals at close quarters and also explore the forest in search of smaller craters, mountain rivers and waterfalls but they have to be accompanied by an armed guide.


Best Time to Visit

The dry season (July-October) is the best time as you can spot large mammals.  The wet season (November-June) is best for bird watching, the waterfalls and canoeing.


How to Get There

The park can be reached by road, charter or scheduled flights from Arusha which is 180km away. The first 80km of the road is smooth but the rest is gravel. The park can also be reached from the Serengeti National Park which is 152km away.







ABOUT LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK

The Lake Manyara National Park is found on the northern circuit of Tanzania safaris, located at the base of the Great Rift Valley and has a total area of 320 sq. km.  The Great Rift Valley forms part of a fault in the earth's crust which runs 800 km from Turkey to the mouth of the Zambezi River in Mozambique.

The forest then opens up into woodlands, grasslands and swamps and the lake itself is home to over 550 species of bird.

Lake Manyara, which occupies about 70% of the total area, is a shallow saline lake attracting masses of pink flamingos as well as pelican, storks, sacred ibis, Egyptian gees and cormorants. The park is full of herds of elephants, herds of 100 to 200 are often seen here, over 2000 live in the area with estimates of up to 6000 in the dry season. Lake Manyara is famous for its unusual tree-climbing lions which are sometimes found spread out on the branches of acacia trees up to seven meters above the ground.  They inhabit the woodland between the lake and the Rift Valley. Lake Manyara is also home to hippos, buffalos, impala, baboons, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest and around 400 species of bird.
