We offer a wide selection of affordable special camping safaris across the popular Northern Safari Circuit and including Serengeti NP, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara National Park. This short safari of 4 days and 3 nights is an ideal Tanzanian experience covering beautiful regions. The driving distances are quite short adding to the value of this safari.
In the morning after breakfast, leave the hotel in Moshi/Arusha and drive to Lake Manyara National Park which is best used as a soft introduction to a safari. The scenic beauty of Manyara is the main reason to travel here and certainly deserves a visit. But the game viewing pales into insignificance compared to the quality of game viewing on offer in Tarangire, the Ngorongoro and the Serengeti. Being famous for its tree-climbing lions, flamingos, breathtaking scenery and the soda-ash lake in the center makes it reason enough to visit here for a day.

The Serengeti National Park covers 12,944km2 of open plains which make it one of the largest in the world. The rocky outcrops commonly known as Moru kopjes in the eastern part of the park are of scenic beauty and occasionally cats can be seen lazing on them. The park contains vast herds of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle and other antelopes.
Wake up Early in the morning, depart for the morning game drive, enjoy the sunrise in Serengeti plains and try the luck at spotting as some big cats are out for early morning hunting in Serengeti plains. After enjoying the morning game drive it’s a time to return to the campsite for brunch, then after, pack all the belongings and drive to Ngorongoro Crater with an en-route game drive in Serengeti National park with the possibility to see all big predators, reptiles and large herds of herbivores including wildebeests. The wildebeest migrations are normally in Serengeti from November to July and the early of August.
Dinner and overnight at the Lodge/Campsite located at the rim of Ngorongoro Crater.
After breakfasts, with well prepared picnic lunch, descend into the crater floor until in the afternoon the tome which you will ascend the crater and drive back to Moshi/Arusha.
The crater provides a protected habitat for thousands of mammals and birds. The entire day is spent on the crater floor viewing lion, hyena, wildebeest, zebra, black rhinoceros, and many species of small antelopes. The Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area is located between the Serengeti and Lake Manyara. It is home to the famous Ngorongoro Crater which is the largest unbroken caldera in the world.
The Crater is a spectacular setting in which to experience your African safari. Some scientists maintain that before it erupted, Ngorongoro Crater the largest intact caldera in the world would have been higher than Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest point in Africa. Covering a mere 260 square kilometers (100 square miles), the 600 meter (1969 foot)-deep Crater is home to a permanent population of more than 30 000 animals. It is one of the few places in Africa where you stand a very good chance of seeing the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant) in the course of a game- drive.
The local Maasai have permission to graze their cattle on the Crater floor, and it is not unusual to see Maasai cattle and buffalo grazing together with lion mere meters away. There are around 1000 lions in the Crater, approximately 20 black rhino, and the spectacular Lerai Forest is one of the best places in Africa to spot leopard. This is one of the natural wonders of the world.
