Tanzania' and Kenyas game reserves have the largest concentrations of wildlife on the African continent. The wide open plains of the Serengeti and Masai Mara are home to over 2 million wildebeest and zebra migrating annually along ancient animal paths, constantly pursued by a host of predators. Throughout this diverse region animals in their countless millions roam freely through the vast expanses of land dedicated to conservation. With names like Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Masia Mara, this is where safaris were born. The fascinating Maasai people have roamed these plains for years living in complete harmony with the wildlife.

Surrounded by some of the most fascinating and varied national parks in Africa, Arusha sits snugly in a wide expanse of fertile volcanic land in the foothills of Kilimanjaro's little brother, Mount Meru.  Arusha is the starting point for most visitors to Tanzania's northern parks.

Tarangire, arguably northern Tanzania's most interesting park, is famous for the large herds of elephants and spectacular baobab trees - a fantastic choice for safari The permanent water of the Tarangire River lures large herds of migrant wildlife from the parched surrounding areas. In the peak of the dry season, Tarangire's resident populations of wildebeest, zebra, eland, elephant and buffalo rival those of the Serengeti. It is a place of dense woodlands, clusters of palm trees and thick stands of baobabs.

The largest unbroken caldera in the world, Ngorongoro Crater was formed nearly 2.5 million years ago. The 100 square mile crater floor contains one of the highest concentrations of predators in Africa who are drawn by the large herds of prey animals. Although the crater is dominated by lions and hyenas, the elusive serval cat can also be found prowling the marshes for water birds while cheetah are often seen pursuing small antelope. The crater floor is also one of the last habitats of the endangered black rhino. Bird life is prolific with regular visits by large flocks of migratory birds including flamingos, white storks and yellow wagtails.

Day 06: Ngorongoro Crater to Serengeti National Park
After breakfast drive to Lake Manyara airstrip for a scheduled flight to the Serengeti.
 
The Serengeti, Tanzania's oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site, is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson's gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle. The spectacle of predator versus prey dominates Tanzania’s greatest park. Golden-maned lion prides feast on the abundance of plain grazers. Solitary leopards haunt the acacia trees lining the Seronera River, while a high density of cheetahs prowls the southeastern plains. Almost uniquely, all three African jackal species occur here, alongside the spotted hyena and a host of more elusive small predators, ranging from the insectivorous aardwolf to the beautiful serval cat.
 
This afternoon is spent in search of Africa’s big game.

This mass concentration of wildlife and the ensuing interaction between predator and prey creates a spectacle unrivaled in the natural world.
