Tanzania Photographic Safaris February / March
Day 1 Arrival
Tanzania Photographic Safari pick up on arrival at Kilimanjaro airport meets your guide and transfer to Arusha for overnight, New Arusha Hotel
Day 2 Tarangire Safari Lodge, Tarangire National Park
Tanzania Photographic Safari after breakfast, drive to Tarangire National Park, the third largest national park in Tanzania.
This delightful park, covering an area of 2,600 sq km was established in 1970, and it is the numerous baobab trees that will initially catch your eye. The Tarangire National Park derives its name from the Tarangire River that rises in the highlands of central Tanzania and winds its way through the game sanctuary.
The river irresistibly lures the herds of plains migrants from the parched surrounding area to its shrunken – but permanent – brackish waters during the dry season.
Tarangire is said to have the highest recorded number of breeding bird species for any habitat in the world. As the rainless days continue the Tarangire pools are clotted with thirsty migrants, and elephants begin to dig for underground streams in the dry riverbed. Dinner and overnight at Tarangire Sopa Lodge
Day 3 Full day Game drive Tarangire National Park
after breakfast game viewing, with picnic lunch ,Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It’s the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem – a smorgasbord for predators – and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed. evening drive to the lodge for dinner and overnight at Tarangire Sopa Lodge
Day 4 Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Tanzania Photographic Safari after breakfast, descend into the crater for a full day of game viewing. A picnic lunch will be taken on the crater floor.
An odd feature of the crater elephants is that they are almost exclusively bulls. Breeding herds – comprising large numbers of females and young with a few attendant older males – are probably unable to find sufficient quality food in the crater. Ngorongoro has carnivores in quantity, drawn by the large herds of prey animals. It has the densest population of large predators, mainly lion – about 100 – and more than 400 spotted hyenas, living in eight clans of up to eighty individuals. Both lions and hyenas will scavenge from each other, depending on weight of numbers and of course, hunger. Dinner and Overnight at Ngorongoro Serena Lodge
Day 5: Full day Crater Tour
Tanzania Photographic Safari after breakfast, descend into the crater for a full day crater tour with picnic lunch. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCAA) is a conservation area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated 180 km (110 mi) west of Arusha in the Crater Highlands area of Tanzania,a large volcanic caldera, lies within the area. The crater supports up to 25,000 large mammals. Grazers dominate: zebra, wildebeest – accounting for almost half the animals – gazelle, buffalo, eland, hartebeest and wart hog. Giraffe, for example, stay away because there is insufficient food at tree level; topi because they compete directly with wildebeest.Later in the afternoon return for dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro Serena Lodge.
Day 6 :Ndutu Area
Tanzania Photographic Safari early morning half-day excursion to Ngorongoro Crater.
Afternoon drive to Ndutu Safari Lodge, via Oldupai Gorge.
After breakfast we will head to the Lake Ndutu area, situated in the Ngorongoro conservation area, part of the southern Serengeti eco-system. Lake Ndutu is alkaline, like most of the other Rift lakes, however the water is still drinkable and used by a wide array of local wildlife.
We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge or camp, and after lunch we will do an afternoon game drive in the Ndutu area. The majority of the wildebeest migration can normally be found on the short-grass plains from December to April. The area is usually heavily populated with elephant, birds and resident game.dinner and overnight at Ndutu Safari Lodge
Day 7 to Day 12 :Ndutu Area
Tanzania Photographic Safari after breakfast at your camp a full day migration viewing at ndutu Area , A newborn wildebeest helped by his mother. Vast herds of wildebeest spend the rainy season in the volcanic open plains below the Ngorongoro Crater and in the Southern Serengeti where the grass growth is most productive with a high nutrient content. This area is the starting point for one of the great wonders of the world: the Serengeti annual wildebeest migration.as the sea of grass provides little cover and the young are easy pickings for a variety of predators, wildebeest have therefore evolved synchronized birthing, which means, about 90% of calves are born within a three-week period. With such a sudden and massive surge of available food, predators do not make any significant dent in the newborn calf population. Wildebeest calves can run minutes after they are born. Within three days the calves are strong enough to keep up with the herd,overnight at Ndutu Safari Lodge
Day 13 :Ndutu – Serengeti National Park
Tanzania Photographic Safari after breakfast drive to central Serengeti National Park, As well as the migration of ungulates, the park is well known for its healthy stock of other resident wildlife, particularly the “big five”, named for the five most prized trophies taken by hunters:
Lion: the Serengeti is believed to hold the largest population of lions in Africa due in part to the abundance of prey species. More than 3,000 lions live in this ecosystem.
African Leopard: these reclusive predators are commonly seen in the Seronera region but are present throughout the national park with the population at around 1,000.
African Elephant: the herds are recovering from population lows in the 1980s caused by poaching and are largely located in the northern regions of the park. Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Serena Lodge
Day 14: Serengeti National Park (Central)
Breakfast at the full day game drives in the Serengeti with a lunch and leisure break at the lodge or campsite in the mid afternoon. It is possible to view all the big five. Animals here are seen in very large herds, especially wildebeest, zebra gazelle and other antelopes.The park is one of the largest in the world; it’s animal concentration and abundance is unequalled. The annual migration of wildebeest and zebra occurs in this park in May/June. In the parks central plains there are carnivores like Lion, Leopard, hyenas and cheetah. The evening meal and an overnight are at Serengeti Serengati Serena Lodge
