Super Game Tanzania Safaris and Tours
The Wildebeest/ migration heads north, through the park, and towards the Kenyan border where it will arrive by end of July…August…..September It is from this point that the migration takes on one of its most spectacular and deadly advances: – the river crossings; in the Serengeti the Mbalangeti and Grumeti rivers, and in Kenya, the most famous crossing; the Mara river. For most of the year these rivers are relatively placid and often dry, but come the rains they become violent torrents presenting major obstacles to the progress of the wildebeest

Pick up from your hotel in Arusha at 8:30 AM and drive to Tarangire National Park, enjoy a full day game drive with a picnic lunch. The park consists of natural vegetation mainly Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with huge swamp areas in the south. Both the river and the swamps act like a magnet for wild animals, during Tanzania’s dry season. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa.
After breakfast, we head towards the Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high-lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species. We arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti National Park
After breakfast, we head towards the far northern reaches of the Serengeti National Park, also known as the Wagakuria. We will do a game drive en route from the Lobo area to the Wagakuria area. As we head north, good sightings of giraffes, plain game, herds of buffalo, and elephants can often be seen.A long stretch of the Mara River runs through the northern Serengeti National Park and the Mara River provides the migration with its most difficult obstacle. Witnessing the frantic herds of wildebeest crossing the Mara River is amazing.
After breakfast you will have a half-day game drive at the Mara river area, later afternoon you will depart to central Serengeti Seronera We head to the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species.

Enjoy early breakfast and meet your guide to having a last morning game drive in Serengeti National Park then depart to the Ngorongoro Conservation area with an en-route game drive and picnic lunch. Ngorongoro is a special conservation area and not a National Park. The whole area is managed by both animals and local Maasai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife.
After breakfast, descend into the crater, enjoy 5 hours game drive in the crater. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most densely crowded African wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals including some of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhinos. We will enjoy a picnic lunch on the crater floor.
Late afternoon drive back to Arusha and drop off at your hotel or Airport.
The destination for today is Manyara National Park where you will have a half-day game drive. As you enter the national park by 10 AM, lush forests of Acacia and Mahogany trees begin to set the mood for what is waiting ahead. Another spectacle of the Lake Manyara National park is the tree-climbing lions, however, spotting them is a game of luck.
After breakfast, the driver will drop you at the airport.
