6 days Tented Lodge with Balloon Safari

Tanzania is one of Africa’s top safari destinations. The wildlife viewing is out of this world and big cats are especially easy to see. All members of the Big Five can be found in various Tanzanian parks and reserves, and all five are present in the Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park. Almost 40% of the country is protected and set aside for conservation, which means that it’s easy to go on a Tanzania safari for two full weeks and drive from park to park while rarely leaving the bush.This is one of our most popular tours as it allows you to spend a very reasonable amount of time in the Serengeti (3 nights), visit Tarangire National Park, still have the chance of exploring Ngorongoro  crater.

DAY 1:  CENTRAL SERENGETI

Early morning we head towards the central Serengeti National Park, also known as the Seronera. We descend into the heart of wild Africa-the Serengeti National Park-with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species.

On this day expect the very long drive from Moshi to Central Serengeti, also you can opt to fly directly from Kilimanjaro Aiport or Arusha Airport to Seronera Airstrip at Serengeti but additional costs will occur.
