Tanzania Safari from Mwanza to Arusha

Tanzania Safari from Mwanza to Arusha : When travelling from Mwanza to Arusha/Kilimanjaro International Airport, it will require some effort to see the amazing wildlife and forested landscapes, but the itinerary will be well worth it.

A Tanzania Cultural and Wildlife Safari will grant you exclusive access to some of the most popular safari locations worldwide, such as the Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Eyasi, Lake Natron, and the fabled Serengeti National Park. However, this tour’s cultural interactions will be well worth it.

An eight-day, once-in-a-lifetime Tanzania Cultural and Wildlife Safari will expose you to breathtaking scenery that is both exciting and fascinating.

Visiting Serengeti National Park.
Part of the larger Serengeti ecosystem, which spans 12,000 square miles (30,000 sq. km) and includes multiple game reserves, is Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. The actual size of the national park is 14,763 square kilometres.

Serengeti National Park is well known throughout the world for its high biodiversity, diversity, and abundance of wildlife. In the park, visitors can encounter all five of the Big Five: the lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo.

Other than lions and leopards, other predators include African wild dogs, cheetahs, hyenas, jackals, African golden jackals, honey badgers, and servals. You have a good chance of seeing the majority of the predator species because the park’s terrain is so open.

Best Time To Visit Serengeti National Park.
The best time of year to see wildlife is during the dry season, which runs from late June to September. The highlight of this season is undoubtedly the wildebeest migration.

Every year, the migration’s best viewing window is in June and July, while the wildebeest calving season runs from late January to early March.

Visiting Ngorongoro Crater.

Within Tanzania’s 8,292 square kilometer Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the Ngorongoro Crater is the primary attraction. A geological phenomenon of unparalleled proportions, the Ngorongoro Crater is regarded as the eighth natural wonder of the world.

About two to three million years ago, a massive volcano erupted and collapsed on itself, leaving behind a crater that is 610 metres deep with a floor that spans 260 kilometres.

Every kind of ecosystem can be found inside this crater, including freshwater and alkaline lakes, open plains, ravine forests, and more. These habitats draw a variety of species, including Africa’s Big Five, which can be viewed on Tanzania safari tours.

Best time to visit Ngorongoro crater.

In the Ngorongoro Crater, you can always see amazing wildlife. On the other hand, during the dry season (June through September), there is less grass on the crater floor, which facilitates animal observation. November through May, the months of the wet season, offer a lush and breathtaking scenery.

Visiting Lake Eyasi.

At the foot of the Serengeti Plateau, on the Great Rift Valley floor, lies Lake Eyasi, a seasonal shallow endothermic salt lake.

In Tanzania’s crater highlands, directly southwest of the Ngorongoro crater and to the south of the Serengeti Plateau. The lake is located in the Eyasi-Wembere branch of the Great Rift Valley and is elongated, with a southwest to northeast orientation.

The Hardzabe bushmen, who inhabit the Datoga and Mbulu tribes in the Lake Eyasi region, are the main draws of the area.

Large flocks of pink-headed flamingos are known to congregate in Lake Eyasi’s alkaline waters, and you can go on a walking safari through the villages.

Visit Lake Natron

In the eastern portion of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, in northern Tanzania, near the Kenyan border, sits Lake Natron.

An estimated 2.5 million birds use this lake as their sole breeding habitat. Hundreds of thousands of magnificent pink-headed flamingos descend on the lake to feed the blue-green algae, creating an amazing spectacle.

The lake is roughly 260 square miles in size. A salt lake, numerous flamingo populations, Oldonyo Lengai Mountain, Engaruka rains, and Engare Sero waterfalls are the main draws here.

Visiting Tarangire National Park.
In Tanzania’s Manyara Region, Tarangire is a national park that spans about 2,850 square kilometres, or 1,100 square miles.

The Tarangire River, which flows through the park, is the source of the park’s name. Thousands of animals migrate from Lake Manyara to the Tarangire National Park each year during the dry season, with the Tarangire River serving as their main source of fresh water for the wild animals in the Tarangire Ecosystem.

The abundance of massive baobab trees in Tarangire is one of its most remarkable features. Even by themselves, these enormous beings, sometimes referred to as the upside-down tree, are an odd and lovely sight.

Best Time to Visit Tarangire National Park.

The best time of year to see wildlife in Tarangire National Park is during the middle and end of the dry season, which runs from late June to October. During the Wet Season, the majority of the park’s animals migrate out, making it much less productive to see wildlife.
