Serengeti - Ngorongoro Safari

Serengeti National Park- Ngorongoro Crater Safari

The Serengeti is a vast wilderness that features rolling savannah plains and countless animals such as wildebeest, buffaloes, lions, cheetahs, hyenas, zebra, elephants, and over 500 different species of birds including ostriches, tawny eagles, secretary birds and many more. It is the most popular tourist attraction in Tanzania, as it plays host to one of the world’s great wonders, The Great Wildebeest Migration.Ngorongoro Crater is also a potent tourist attraction, being the world’s largest unfilled volcanic caldera. The crater is teeming with life and unlike the Serengeti, the over 30,000 animals here mostly don’t migrate and epic game drives are accessible year-round. The greater Ngorongoro Conservation Area is also a UNESCO Heritage Site due to some of the earliest human remains and artifacts dating to almost 2 million years ago were found within the region, specifically at Olduvai Gorge. This safari is bound to exceed your expectations and evoke awe at the splendor that Tanzania and East Africa have to offer!

Essential Travel Tips for Your East African Adventure

Clothing On Safari

Make sure you pack different layers of clothes. During the day temperatures may vary and wearing different layers makes it easy to quickly adapt to weather changes. Pack protective clothing against the sun and mosquitoes. Also don’t forget your swimming clothes and a poncho and/or a raincoat to stay dry during unexpected rain showers.

Sunglasses

Sunglasses are another essential item to pack for a safari in Kenya. The sun can be pretty harsh, so protecting your eyes from the glare is necessary. We recommend packing a pair of polarized sunglasses that will reduce glare and provide 100% UV protection.

Hat

A hat is a must-have item when going on a safari in East Africa. Not only will it protect you from the harsh sun, but it will also keep your head cool and prevent mosquito bites. We recommend packing a wide-brimmed hat to provide maximum protection against the sun. A baseball cap or visor will do the trick if you don’t have a wide-brimmed hat.

Insect Repellent

Remember to pack insect repellent! Mosquitoes are everywhere in Kenya, so protecting yourself from bites is essential. Pack a strong insect repellent that contains at least 30% DEET. Apply the repellent liberally all over your body, especially in areas where mosquitoes are known to bite, such as the ankles, wrists, and neck.

Single Use Plastic

The import of plastic is banned in several countries in East Africa. When traveling, ensure you don’t carry plastic bags or other disposable plastic items. We fully support this change and recommend you bring your drinking bottle to refill with the water we provide on your safari. If you have any questions about which items are allowed in the country of arrival, do not hesitate to ask us!

Tipping on safari

Although not mandatory, tipping is an expression of your gratitude and appreciation for your guide and other staff making your safari more memorable.
