8 Days Tanzania Mid-range Safari


The 8-day Tanzania Mid-range Safari is our most popular offering! The best option if you want to explore the three most beautiful parks in northern Tanzania is our 8-Day Tanzania Safari. The start of your safari will be at Tarangire National Park, the elephants’ habitat. See the spectacular wildebeest migration and the renowned Serengeti, which is home to many different animals. And the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, a natural wonder home to the world’s greatest diversity of wildlife. On this fantastic safari, you might witness these two of Africa’s Seven Natural Wonders.

With its vast savannah, flat-topped acacia trees silhouetted against vibrant orange sunsets, and thousands of animals streaming across the horizon, this journey is an actualization of the idea of a “safari” in the conventional sense. There are several opportunities to observe animals in each park, as well as inviting safari camps and motels where you may unwind each evening. The best wildlife locations in Tanzania are visited on this classic safari, including Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, and the endless Serengeti plains.

The crater was made between two and three million years ago when a sizable volcano erupted and then burst into flames. Its floor area is 260 km2 (100 square meters), and its depth is 610 m (2,000 feet).

Between 4,500 and 5,800 meters tall, or between fifteen and nineteen thousand feet, is how tall the original volcano is estimated to have been. The crater’s “big 5” animals—the lion, elephant, rhino, leopard, and buffalo—are well-known. Other fauna you’ll see are zebras, gazelles, wildebeest, impalas, hippos, and other bird species.
