Its natural environment consists primarily of Acacia forest and massive African Baobab trees, with vast marsh areas in the south.

During Tanzania’s dry season, both the river and the swamps serve as a magnet for wild animals. Tarangire National Park has some of Africa’s largest elephant herds. This African National Park also has three uncommon animal species: the Greater Kudu, the Fringed-eared Oryx, and a few Ashy Starlings.

Day 3: Drive to Serengeti National Park

Get up early, eat breakfast, and travel to the Serengeti National Park, passing via the Ngorongoro highlands. Visit the Masai community located between Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti National Park. Your visit will include a display of traditional Masai dancing, a look at the day-to-day operations of a Masai village, and the opportunity to buy locally crafted jewelry. Drive to the endless plain after getting experience. The Serengeti National Park is vast, covering around 12,000 square miles. It is Tanzania’s oldest park and has the most complex environment on the planet. The flora and fauna are nearly identical to what they were hundreds of years ago.

Serengeti National Park has a lot to offer and will keep you busy. Seronera Valley is one of the best sites in the world to see huge predators such as lions, leopards, cheetahs, and hyenas. On any given day, you can witness elephants, zebras, elephants, giraffes, wildebeest, and a variety of other animals.

Day 4: Full Day Game Drives Serengeti National Park

On this day, you will go on two game drives: first, before breakfast, you will go on a sun-rise game drive, which will take around 1-2 hours, after which you will be transported back to your lodge for breakfast and a little rest until lunch time. After a great lunch at your lodge, you will go on a second game drive from the afternoon until sundown, and then return to your lodge.

Take an optional hot balloon tour across the huge plains (at an additional cost of $590 per person). Seeing the wildebeests, zebras, and gazelles from above would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The Hadzabe live in caves and do not use clothes, instead covering their private regions with little strips of animal skin.
