LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK: BREATHTAKING VIEWS AND CLOSE ENCOUNTERS
The Lake Manyara Park is characterized by the presence of the lake which covers almost half of it and by a dense forest where numerous animals hide while large groups of baboons accompany the visit.
The famous arboreal lions stationed on the trees in search of fresh air and the elephants immersed in the vegetation and in absolute silence give emotions not to be missed.
THE NGORONGORO CRATER: AN ECOSYSTEM UNIQUE IN THE WORLD
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is the epitome of uniqueness. Already from the Crater View Point you can admire the beauty and singularity of the place.
This enormous caldera is one of the most extraordinary places you can visit in Tanzania, a unique ecosystem in the world where you can enjoy an incredible concentration of animals, including some black rhinos, now a rarity.
THE SERENGETI: PURE ADVENTURE
Bordering the Ngorongoro crater, lies the Serengeti, a fantastic, enormous, almost fifteen thousand square kilometers of wild nature, made up of predators and prey, unforgettable sunsets and continuous surprises.
All the big five are there: lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino, but also antelopes, zebras, wildebeests on the move and much more.
The Serengeti is the dream of every traveler in search of emotions: contact with nature and its mysteries and the possibility of experiencing the journey with all the senses. It is romance in its pure state.
THE LAND OF THE MAASAI
The name of this park was given by the Maasai tribe. In Maa, the Maasai language, siringet means “the endless plain”.
The Maasai have their ancestral lands in these places and experience the territory as part of their being, of their essence.
A visit to a Maasai village puts you in contact with a very different and very fascinating culture at the same time.
THE GREAT MIGRATION
If there is an extraordinary natural phenomenon in the world, this is the Great Serengeti Migration, a gigantic movement of ungulates that challenge nature and dangers to find water and fresh pastures by walking thousands of kilometers throughout the year.
Being present at the passage of the Mara river to the north of the park between August and October is among the most incredible adventures you can have.
