The Tanzania Migration Safari begins in the safari capital of Arusha where we land in Kilimanjaro International Airport, a convenient airport that serves many international flights. After an overnight we drive north to the pristine Lake Manyara where we will encounter our first wildlife and a large variety of wildlife and the photogenic flamingo wallowing on the lake. Then we travel to the Serengeti National Park for a couple of nights and days filled with action-packed game drives. Our next destination is Ngorongoro Crater where we will not only have the opportunity to explore the crater on a crater tour but also wonder the Karatu area and experience the culture and lifestyle of Tanzanians.
THE WORD "SIRINGIT" MEANS "ENDLESS PLAINS,"
AND THIS IS UNDERSTANDABLYFROM WHERE THE SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK TAKES ITS NAME.
Tanzania's oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a 7th worldwide wonder, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration,
when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebras and 300,000 Thomson's gazelles join the wildebeest's trek for fresh grazing.
Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe
and thousands upon thousands of elands, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant's gazelle.
Popular the Serengeti might be, but it remains so vast that you may be the only human audience when a pride of lions masterminds a siege, focused unswervingly on its next meal.
