The Northern Circuit

Northern Tanzania is the richest wildlife safari area in the East Africa or probably in Africa, so a visit here you will never forget. With varied geographical features like the Kilimanjaro and Meru mountains, Lake Victoria and the Great Rift Valley which contains many large and ecologically significant wildlife parks and reserves, such as the famous Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park, Lake Manyara and Tarangire, offers an array of safari options for you, from mountain trekking and hiking, game viewing safari in the national parks, walking excursions and cultural/tribal tours to various villages. Since you can fly into Kilimanjaro International Airport (situated between the towns of Arusha and Moshi) you can also avoid spending too much time in urban areas and get into the bush as quickly as possible.

Among numerous options and varieties of safaris, we can only give you a few sample itineraries. However there are many combinations possible and even a short safari to be combined with a few relaxing days on the beaches of the Indian Ocean can be arranged. However for a proper in-depth safari we recommend to budget at least 7 days. All safaris are private and with your own 4-wheel drive vehicle and experienced driver/guide you travel through lush bush and over endless plains. To shorten the driving hours you can opt for a flight from or to Arusha at the beginning of end of your safari.
