The Serengeti is one of the world’s last great wildlife refuges. This vast area of land supports the greatest remaining concentration of plain game in Africa, on a scale unparalleled anywhere else in the world.

The name comes from the Maasai ‘Siringet’, meaning endless plains. The Serengeti extends over some 5,700 sq. miles supporting over four million mammals and birds and the greatest concentration of wildlife on the planet. Due to the size of the Serengeti, we will concentrate on different areas for the different times of the year. The short grass plains ( Dec-March), transform when the first rains start allowing the grass to grow from a dull brown to a bright green. The volcanic soil enables nutrient.

rich grasses to attract the pregnant wildebeest to feed and give birth. The Central Serengeti (April-June) Moru Kopjes and, the Seronera valley are the most popular areas of the Serengeti, this time of year and is an ideal time to visit. The wildebeest migration will be passing through the area heading out of the short grass plains towards the western corridor.

The Western Corridor provides a very exciting time, between June and August, as the wildebeest migration meets the Grumeti river where some of the largest Nile crocodiles can be found. Northern Serengeti (AugustNovember). The best kept secret of the Serengeti, is relatively devoid of tourists who will venture this far. It is perhaps our favourite area operating in this region for over 10 years, and knowing it intimately. The Migration will be crossing the Mara river, traversing some of the most photogenic areas, a patchwork quilt of colour and diversity.


The views at the rim of Ngorongoro Crater are sensational. On the crater floor, grassland blends into swamps, lakes, rivers, woodland and mountains – all a haven for wildlife, including the most dense predator population in Africa.

The crater is home to up to 25,000 large mammals, mainly grazers – gazelle, buffalo, eland, hartebeest and warthog. There are a small number of black rhinos here too. The birdlife is largely seasonal and is also affected by the ratio of soda to fresh water in Lake Magadi on the crater floor.

Lake manyara

Manyara’s mahogany, sausage-tree and croton are alive with blue monkeys and vervets. Elephants feed off fallen fruit while bushbuck, waterbuck, baboons, aardvark, civet, the shy pangolin and leopard all make their home in the forest. Manyara is a sanctuary to elusive buffalo and hippo, giraffe, impala, zebra and the famous residents – tree climbing lions.

Lake Manyara itself is a magnet for birdlife and a kaleidoscope of different species can be found around its lake shores, including huge flocks of flamingoes.


Located in the Rift Valley, Tarangire covers approximately 2600 square kilometers and contains nine different vegetation zones, each supporting distinct types of wildlife. Panoramic and wooded savannas stretch far and wide in every direction punctuated with majestic Baobab trees. The park’s main source of water, the Tarangire River, attracts nearly as high a concentration of animal life as Ngorongoro Crater.

Large herds of elephant, zebra, wildebeest, eland and oryx congregate along the riverbank until the wet season allows them to migrate to lush new grazing land.

Arusha NP

Arusha National Park is montaine forest habitat with three distinct zones: Mount Meru, Ngurdoto Crater, the Momella Lakes, a group of shallow alkaline lakes fed by underground streams, and Mount Meru, one of the most rewarding mountains to climb in Africa.  Animals here include buffalo, elephant, hippo, giraffe, zebra and a variety of antelope, blue monkey and black and white colobus monkey, leopard and hyena.
