Join us as we explore these unparalleled destinations and discover why a safari in Tanzania is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Serengeti National Park: Home of the Great Migration

Welcome to the iconic Serengeti National Park, a wildlife haven in Tanzania that is famous for being the stage of the Great Migration – one of nature’s most spectacular events. Picture vast plains stretching as far as the eye can see, dotted with acacia trees and teeming with an abundance of wildlife.

During the migration season, millions of wildebeest, zebras, and other animals embark on a journey across the Serengeti in search of greener pastures. Witnessing this mass movement of creatures is truly awe-inspiring and unforgettable.

Aside from the migration, Serengeti offers year-round game viewing opportunities with sightings of lions, elephants, giraffes, and more. Safari enthusiasts will be thrilled by the chance to spot Africa’s Big Five in their natural habitat.

Exploring Serengeti also means experiencing its diverse landscapes – from grassy plains to rocky outcrops known as kopjes. Whether you’re a wildlife enthusiast or a nature lover seeking adventure, Serengeti National Park promises an immersive safari experience like no other.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area: A Crater of Biodiversity

Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania is a true masterpiece of Mother Nature, boasting a unique landscape that houses an incredible variety of wildlife. At the heart of this conservation area lies the Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This crater is home to an abundance of wildlife species such as lions, elephants, and rhinos.

One of the main highlights of visiting Ngorongoro is the opportunity to witness the annual wildebeest migration – a breathtaking spectacle that should not be missed. The diverse ecosystem within the crater supports a wide range of flora and fauna, making it a haven for biodiversity enthusiasts.

Exploring Ngorongoro offers not only exceptional game viewing but also the chance to interact with Maasai communities living on the outskirts of the conservation area. Their rich culture and traditional way of life add another layer of authenticity to your safari experience in Tanzania’s national parks.

Tarangire National Park: A Haven for Elephants

Nestled in northern Tanzania, Tarangire National Park is a hidden gem waiting to be explored. As you venture into this wildlife sanctuary, prepare to be captivated by the sight of majestic elephants roaming freely in their natural habitat. Known for its large population of these gentle giants, Tarangire offers a unique opportunity to witness them up close.

The park’s diverse landscape, ranging from lush grasslands to towering baobab trees, provides the perfect backdrop for unforgettable safari experiences. Keep your eyes peeled for other iconic African species such as lions, zebras, and wildebeests that call Tarangire home.

Embark on a game drive through the park’s winding trails and feel the thrill of spotting wildlife around every corner. Whether you’re an avid nature enthusiast or simply seeking awe-inspiring moments in the wild, Tarangire National Park promises an adventure like no other.

Mount Kilimanjaro National Park: The Tallest Peak in Africa

Towering over the African savannah, Mount Kilimanjaro is a majestic sight to behold. Its snow-capped peak glistens in the sunlight, drawing adventurers from around the world to conquer its summit.

The national park surrounding this iconic mountain is a haven for trekkers and nature enthusiasts alike. The diverse landscapes within the park range from lush rainforests to barren alpine deserts, offering a unique experience at every turn.

With various hiking routes catering to different skill levels, Mount Kilimanjaro National Park provides an opportunity for everyone to witness the breathtaking views from Africa’s highest point. The sense of accomplishment upon reaching Uhuru Peak is unparalleled, making it a bucket-list item for many travelers.

As you ascend through different climate zones, don’t forget to take in the rich flora and fauna that call this region home. Keep your eyes peeled for unique wildlife sightings amidst the rugged terrain – Mount Kilimanjaro National Park truly offers an adventure like no other.

Ruaha National Park: Off-the-Beaten-Path Adventure

Tucked away in the southern part of Tanzania lies Ruaha National Park, a hidden gem for those seeking an off-the-beaten-path adventure. With its vast wilderness and rugged landscapes, Ruaha offers a truly authentic safari experience like no other.

Home to diverse wildlife including lions, elephants, and rare species such as the African wild dog, Ruaha is a paradise for nature enthusiasts and photographers alike. The park’s remote location ensures a sense of exclusivity and tranquility that is hard to find in more popular destinations.

Exploring Ruaha means embarking on game drives through untouched terrain, encountering breathtaking scenery at every turn. From baobab trees dotting the landscape to the Great Ruaha River winding its way through the park, every moment spent here feels like a step back in time.

For those looking to escape the crowds and immerse themselves in raw African beauty, Ruaha National Park is a must-visit destination that promises an unforgettable safari experience.

How to Plan Your Visit to Tanzania’s National Parks

When planning your visit to Tanzania’s National Parks, it’s essential to consider the best time of year to witness the Great Migration in Serengeti, explore the diverse wildlife in Ngorongoro Crater, observe elephants in Tarangire, summit Mount Kilimanjaro, and experience an off-the-beaten-path adventure in Ruaha.

Ensure you book a reputable tour operator or safari company that can tailor your itinerary to maximize your experience. Remember to obtain all necessary travel documents such as visas and vaccinations before embarking on your African adventure.

Pack appropriate clothing for both warm days and cool nights, comfortable walking shoes for safaris and hikes, sunscreen, insect repellent, and a good camera to capture unforgettable moments.

Immerse yourself in Tanzania’s natural beauty by respecting wildlife habitats and local cultures. Leave only footprints behind while taking memories with you that will last a lifetime from this extraordinary destination filled with unparalleled biodiversity.

Above & Beyond
Review of: 3-Day Gorillas trekking and Batwa Experience
Sedrick went above and beyond to accomodate our request for an itinerary alteration due to our compressed time in Uganda. He also compeltely took care of scheduling our covid 19 testing and drove us to the site on arrival.

Our driver/guide Ben was also outstanding!

**We highly recommend using a porter during gorilla trekking as their are some complex parts to the trail/terrain. This also benefits the local people by providing them work.**

Seeing Lots of Animals and Uganda
The schedule suited my time in Uganda exactly and was a great opportunity to view some of the top wildlife and natural wonders of the country. Lodgings range from mid-range to near upscale and are in beautiful locations. Food is good and ample. My driver, Stanley, was expert at spotting wildlife and, very importantly on the Ugandan roads, a careful and skilled driver. You see various parts of the country on this tour, and due to distances, be aware you'll spend quite a few hours on the road. One thing they might add is an itinerary going into more detail ahead of time on each day's activity and suggested things to bring. I was concerned about the needed COVID test for return home, but they took care of arranging that, and it turned out successfully. Overall the tour was a real highlight and is highly recommended.

I went on an 11 day safari visiting Kampala, Jinja, Lake Mburo NP, Bwindi NP, Queen Elizabeth NP and Kibale NP. Communications with Ngoni were prompt and easy from the start. As soon as I made my booking, Sedrick contacted me through WhatsApp and guided me through the rest of the process. Leading up to the tour he made sure I was well-prepared to begin. He was always very clear and friendly. Service was exceptional. I had the pleasure of going on this safari with three members of Ngoni's staff - Sedrick, Nelson and Joel. These guys made my comfort their priority from the moment we met. Whether it was checking if I was okay with the accommodations or making sure I always had a bottle of water, I always felt like I was being well taken care of. Nelson is an excellent guide. His knowledge about the flora and fauna of Uganda was extensive, always able to answer any questions I had and was eager to teach - it's obvious that he has a great love for his country and it's environment and is eager to share this love with his clients. My experience with Ngoni and Uganda surpassed all expectations I had. Absolutely amazing, and thanks to the guys at Ngoni it feels like a new home - can't wait to come back and visit. Webale, brothers!

Sedrick was unique and stood out from the rest in the high quality communication he provided since the first inquiry. He called me to provide information about the itinerary and see if I had any questions even before booking the tour. We communicated through WhatsApp for any other questions that came to mind after that call. After picking me up from the airport, he and Pilot (additional tour guide) provided plenty of information about the country to give me some context and we started our long drive to the impenetrable forest. The food was delicious with many options; the accommodation was very clean with exceptional service; and the transportation from Entebbe to Bwindi park was very comfortable (although long). As a solo female traveler, both tour guides (Sedrick and Pilot) did an exceptional job at enduring I accomplished everything intended to in Uganda, and always made me feel safe. I highly recommend to book your safari with this company because the quality and professionalism will not let you down.

I was going on a gorilla safari with my friend and this was going to be the first ever safari for the both of us. Luckily, the communication with the office was super easy and we got answers to all of the questions we needed. The driver / guide (Sedrick) was very professional and funny and made our time very pleasant. Also, he had a proper knowledge of the local area close to the Mgahinga national park and he promptly spoke some 7 languages which we thought was super positive. The safari was surely the highlight of out East African trip!

My Team and I did a five day trip, including Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, Murchison Falls and Kidepo. It was truly an incredible experience. Our guide, Sedrick, was knowledgeable, skilled in driving in some challenging settings and just plain fun to hang out with for five days. The lodging was perfect, especially Savannah Lodge. The tents and beds were high quality. The views were spectacular. Meals were delicious and varied. I recommend Ngoni safaris Uganda with all my heart and soul!

Pilot May 28, 2019
Our six days trip was amazing. The driver/guide had an incredible knowledge of animal and bird-life and are so interesting to talk to. His driving skills through lashing rain and massive puddles was admirable! The cooks managed to produce varied and delicious meals from the kitchen, which we ate both at accommodation or roadside when we were travelling from one place to another . At all times we felt safe and well-looked after. All in all, an incredible experience, due not only to the abundance of wildlife we were lucky enough to see, but also to the great efforts put to have our Safari a better one . The safari was full of fun. Traveling with ngoni safaris is my life time memorable experience and I highly recommend it to travellers who would love to visit uganda or EastAfrica for holidays, vacations or Adventure.. Even five stars are too small .
