Day 4 Ngorongoro Crater to Serengeti National Park

A World Heritage Site and proclaimed Seventh Wonder of the World, Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park is famous for being host to the annual Great Migration, when some two million hooves pound the open plains, ranging from mega-herds of millions of wildebeest to more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle searching for fresh grazing. Yet, even when the migration moves on, the Serengeti offers the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of giant elephant and statuesque giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of elands, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle. And where there is food, there are predators, so the Serengeti’s big cat and predator concentration is high all year round…

The park is famous for its huge number of elephants, baobab trees and tree climbing lions. Visitors to the park can expect to see any number of resident zebra and wildebeest in addition to the less common animals. Other common animals include waterbuck, giraffe, and olive baboons.

Home to more than 550 species, the park is a haven for bird enthusiasts who can expect so see dozens of species even in the dry season. The swamps are the focus of the largest selection of breeding birds anywhere in the world. Yellow-collared Lovebirds are a common bird sighting in the trees along the Tarangire River.

The park is also famous for the termite mounds that dot the landscape. Those that have been abandoned are often seen to be home to dwarf mongoose.

The landscape and vegetation are incredibly diverse with a mix that is not found anywhere else in the northern safari circuit. The hilly landscape is dotted with vast numbers of Baobab trees, dense bush and high grasses.
