Lake Manyara National Park
Tree-climbing lions and over 400 species of birds
Large ecological variety in a small area
Lake Manyara National Park, an underestimated gem of the safari parks, offers a large ecological variety in a small area. The alkaline soda of the lake appeals to impressive numbers of birds thriving on its water. More than 400 species have been identified and one of the highlights are the thousands of strolling flamingo’s. From the entrance of the park, the road winds through a groundwater forest area where baboon troops can be seen hanging about on the roadside and in the trees.

The world’s largest, inactive, intact and unfilled caldera
Is commonly referred to as the 8th wonder of the world
Nothing can prepare you for the breathtaking beauty that is the Ngorongoro Crater. As you stand at the viewpoint looking out over the crater, clouds hovering around the tip of the rim with the cool mountainous breeze in the air, there is no mistaking the divinity of mother nature. The Ngorongoro Crater is a world heritage site, the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and is commonly referred to as the 8th wonder of the world. Due to its natural borders, there is an abundance of wildlife throughout the conservation area which is home to the Big Five including the African Black Rhino as well as hyena, zebra and elephants to name a few. The Ngorongoro Crater is an absolute must on any northern circuit itinerary.
The heart of the Great Migration and the natural habitat of many different big cats!
The Ndutu Region is 8,000 square meters in size and is a component of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The area extends all the way to the unfenced southern Serengeti National Park and contains the famous Ngorongoro Crater.
The Ndutu Lake is saline or alkaline in nature, and the region surrounding it is covered in short grass plains as well as acacia woodlands.
The enormous herds of wildebeest and zebras that inhabit this area are drawn there by the abundant seasonal rain that falls nearby. The calving season, also known as the rainy season, is when female wildebeest give birth to a significant number of their calves. The majority of predators are drawn to this location since there are so many prey animals to catch. The area attracts a variety of bird species, both migratory and native, which attracts many bird watchers to the region.
Lions, cheetahs, small-spotted genets, caracals, elephants, giraffes, leopards, owls, and striped hyenas are the principal animal species found around this lake. It won’t take long before you see all five of the big five animals because it’s the only site where you can find them all in one small area. The six different species of big cats—leopards, lions, cheetahs, caracals, servals, and wildcats—can only be found in the Ndutu region.
Pololeti Game Reserve
An important area for breeding wildebeest, with an abundance of wildlife
The new Pololeti Game Reserve, is part of the Loliondo Game Controlled Area, now operating under the NCAA (Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority), an important area for breeding wildebeest, and a corridor for the animals coming from the Serengeti NP.
Because wildlife knows no boundaries, you will find a wide variety of animals in the game reserve, such as hunting lions, roaming elephants, grazing buffalo, running antelope and more.
