Tanzania Serengeti & Ngorogoro Crater


The Serengeti National Park is a jewel in the crown of African national parks.  Located in north western Tanzania, bordering Kenya, this World Heritage site is also one of the 7 Wonders of the Natural World. The Park is a vast expanse of almost 15 000 square km’s, boasting riverine forest, grassland and savannah plains.

The Masai lion, African Leopard, African Bush Elephant, East Black Rhino and African Buffalo make up the Big Five which are ever-present in the Serengeti.  Other animal and bird species are quite prolific and too many to highlight.  An overland wildlife safari is the main reason for visitors to explore this amazing region and predators are best viewed between June and October.

Best experienced during July through to October, the annual wildebeest migration is a sight to behold – particularly from the air.

Helicopter trips as well as the more peaceful hot-air balloon excursions offer a spectacular viewpoint of this migration of over two million wildebeest, zebra and antelope from the Serengeti, to the lush pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.

A neighbouring conservation area and another World Heritage Site is the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and home to the large volcanic Ngorongoro Crater – said to have been a volcano higher than Mount Kilimanjaro before imploding on itself and forming the crater.  Meaning “Gift of Life” the Ngorongoro region is one of Africa’s most stunning regions.  Not only is it home to a very high density of black rhino and elephant, the Maasai and other tribes live in peace in the idyllic area.

As a safari and overland adventures destination, The Serengeti and Ngorongoro are definitely a must. Allow Ashanti Travel Online to assist you with booking a Tanzania budget friendly holiday with a variety of options available.
