Tarangire National Park: Along with the large herds of buffalo, zebra and wildebeest, large herds of elephant meander through Tarangire National Park making for big and exciting game viewing. Tarangire is quieter than the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater so visit for a less busy safari that is filled with incredible wildlife.

Western Corridor [Grumeti River ] In Serengeti : In June/July, the Grumeti River in the Western Serenget National Park i is the place to be to witness the most dramatic stages of the Great Migration. Watch as the herds make the treacherous river crossing before moving onto the perilous banks of the Mara River.

Mara River-The biggest  migration Crossing Points: One of Earth’s most spectacular wildlife events takes place each year in the heart of eastern Africa, culminating at a river crossing where nature coldly decides who lives to see another season.

Mount Kilimanjaro: One of the most breathtaking sights in Tanzania seeing the highest free standing strato-volcanic Mountain in the World . Even if you’re not climbing it, stopping under its foots steps  to take in the view of Africa’s highest peak is a definite must-do.

Best Time to Visit: The best season to visit Tanzania is definitely during the Dry Season which runs from June to October. The weather is milder and there is little rain. The dry weather also means the vegetation is less thick making animals easier to spot. Wildlife congregates around water sources also making for easier sightings.
