View the 2016 annular eclipse in Katavi National Park. The wilderness of Katavi National Park, located in the western area of Tanzania, is one of the most untouched areas of the entire country, indeed of all East Africa. It offers unspoilt Tanzania Safari wildlife viewing in the country's third-largest national park, in a remote location far off the beaten track. This is Africa at its most wild: unadulterated bush settings, spectacular views, and rich wildlife. An incredible backdrop to witness an annular eclipse. More info →
the incredible Serengetti Migration
The great Serengetti Migration has to be one of Africa`s most breathtaking experiences. Sometimes referred to as the ‘Greatest Show on Earth', The Great Wildebeest Migration is a movement of approximately 1.5 million wildebeest throughout the Serengeti and Masai Mara ecosystems. 400,000 zebra and 200,000 gazelles accompany them along the way, making a total of over 2 million migrating animals!
The dry season (from late June to September) offers the best wildlife viewing in general. The timing of the migration varies every year (the best chance of seeing it is during June and July).
See the tree-climbing lions of Lake Manyara
Lake Manyara is a lovely scenic park on the road from Arusha to the Ngorongoro Crater. Famous for its tree climbing lions, Manyara is often visited for an afternoon's game drive on the way to Ngorongoro. Why these lions habitually climb trees is still up for debate but viewing a pride relaxing in an acacia tree is an incredible site. Lake Manyara is also know for its incredible elephant population, abundance of the pink flamingos and is home to the largest concentration of baboons anywhere in the world.
take a game drive into the Ngorongoro Crater
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is located 180 km west of Arusha in the Crater Highlands area of Tanzania. It was once an enormous volcanoe and now an estimated 25 000 large mammals are resident in this bowl of plenty, including a population of approximately 6 000 resident wildebeest, 16 highly endangered black rhino and around 70 lions. Cheetah move in and out of the Crater, while leopard are most often encountered in the spectacular Lerai Forest.
TAKE a SAFARI INTO THE SKY ON A HOT AIR BALLOON
Can you imagine viewing the vastness of Serengeti in a hot air balloon? Serengeti Balloon Safaris will have you floating high in the sky where you can witness wildlife from a completely different perspective.
With very few power lines, roads or fences, this ranks as one of the most scenic balloon flights that you can do. Launching at dawn, rising as the sun rises, you gently float over the plains of the magnificent Serengeti.
