Stunning Male Giraffe – Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire and Lake Manyara Parks 

The vast area of Northern Tanzania offers some of the world’s most diverse safari opportunities known as the ‘Northern Circuit’. Among these are the world famous Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and Highlands, Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara National Park

Northern Tanzania is an essential safari destination on everyone’s travel list. The iconic wildebeest migration cycle that takes place in the Serengeti is one of the most amazing wildlife spectacles. A safari on the crater floor at Ngorongoro is a game-viewing environment that has no equal.  Away from the tourist hotspots, quieter parks such as Tarangire are superb for game viewing. Towering above it all is Kilimanjaro the world’s highest freestanding mountain and arguably Africa’s toughest challenge.
