Tanzania – Serengeti Lodge Safari

Serengeti safari features Ngorongoro, Serengeti and Lake Manyara National Parks.

Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken caldera in the world which has been described as one of the greatest natural wonders of the world and is home to many species of wild game and birds. With the exception of impala and topi, almost every species of African plains mammal lives in the crater including the endangered black rhino.

Serengeti National Park is Tanzania’s oldest park, one of the world’s last great wildlife refuges. It is contiguous with Kenya’s Maasai Mara Game Reserve and stretches as far as Lake Victoria to the West. Its name comes from the Maasai word Siringet, meaning endless plains’. The Serengeti ecosystem supports great concentration of game in Africa, including more than three million large mammals that roam the park freely.

Lake Manyara National Park, two thirds water and one third dry land and is also home to a spectacular concentration of game for such a small area. The park is famous for Flamingos that carpet the lake and lions that sprawl on trees.
