The land of beauty and tranquility

Our journey took us along the famous northern circuit starting in Arusha. We first headed towards Lake Manyara and Taragire N.P. Followed by the Ndutu Area in the southwestern part of the Serengeti before entering the National Park. We finished by driving into Ngorongoro Crater and a relaxing overnight stay at a local farm. With so many impression to share I divided the footage into 5 sections. ย I hope you enjoy it.

Arusha, a pleasant place to start and finish a safari adventure. Situated at the base of Mount Meru, offers a nice dive into Tanzanian life including a special treat of torrential rains at the local airfield ๐Ÿ˜‚

Tarangire National Park

This easy accessible park scores with lush green landscapes, tons of impressive elephants and giraffes amongst and abundance of game, not to forget the friendly grey langurs, mostly known as black-faced monkeys.ย 

Ndutu Area

Ndutu is very special in itsย own way. Remote and overseen by many, it offers the best of the migration during the January/February timeframeย witnessingย hundreds of thousands of animals moving along. Staying a few days completely in the wilderness, hearing lions and hyenas roar all night in one of the few camps isย justย amazing.

Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti is like the icing on the cake but it comes with more human trace like a small village and even an airstrip. However one can see literally all animals including the rare cheetahs and leopards. This is only topped by the legendary acadia trees giving away the serendipity of East Africa. ย 

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Ngorongoro crater packs all of East Africa into a small concentrated area. The caldera of the extinct volcano measures only about 17km in diameter and is the only larger caldera not mostly covered by a lake. We ended the safari with staying at Gibbโ€™s Farm, just outside of the crater, an organic coffee farm and lodge with magnificent views and experience, a must see!
