Wildebeest Calving Special – Tanzania
Visit all of northern Tanzania’s great wildlife parks and savor the beauty of your surroundings from beautifully-designed lodges in prime locations. Begin with a game drive of Tarangire Park. Experience nature up close on a full day of impressive wildlife encounters in the Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti, Tarangire and Lake Manyara Parks. Cap your safari with a thrilling two night stay in the heart of the action of the world-famous Serengeti Plain.
Welcome to Africa!
Warm and fairly dry, January to March is a great time to visit the region with large herds of topi, zebra, eland, giraffe and Thompson’s gazelle starting to gather on the open plains. This is also the calving season and thousands of these animals, including big herds of wildebeest that stay behind, give birth over a period of a few weeks.
The concentrated herds attract the attention of predators, especially the big cats, and the sightings of leopard and lion are common. Scattered rain showers freshen up warm days and produce bright green landscapes and crisp, clear skies conducive to beautiful photography.
|Arusha - "The Safari City"||
It is probably the busiest Tanzanian town after Dar es Salaam. As the starting place for the great safaris in the north of Tanzania – the Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Olduvai Gorge and Arusha National Parks it can be very busy with tourists, mostly either in transit to, or returning from, these attractions.
