Where this 5 day Big 5 safari Tanzania takes you
The 5 days safari in Tanzania starts and ends back at Arusha town which is the base town for all the safaris that we offer in the Northern Tanzania Safari Circuit.
On this safari, you get to visit all the most famous parks in the Northern Tanzania Safari Circuit namely; Tarangire National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater as well as the endless plains of the Serengeti National Park. 5 Day safari Tanzania.
A classic safari in Tanzania for 5 days like this gives a chance to sample all that this beautiful country has to offer in terms of wildlife safari.
Serengeti National Park is the second largest after Ruaha National Park, but the most famous park in the Northern circuit owing to the fact that it is the home to the wildebeest migration which sees more than a million herds of wildebeests accompanied by more than 400,000 Thomson’s gazelles, 300,000 zebras, and about 12,000 elands ponder the endless plains crossing ultimately to the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya in search for fresh grass and water.
This results in a yearly world-famous animal spectacle that sees the animals dare the dangerously Nile crocodile-infested Mara River a phenomenon often referred to as ‘The Great Wildebeests Migration’.
Other resident animals in their thousands roam the Serengeti all year round and this is not all. This program takes you to the equally celebrated wildlife area in the world and a UNESCO world heritage Center;
The Ngorongoro Crater is actually a large caldera that resulted from the collapse of an ancient enormous Volcano; believed to have been larger than Mt Kilimanjaro which is the largest and highest mountain in Africa.
To add icing to the cake you start with a visit to Tarangire National Park a vast park (5th largest in Tanzania) where you will hope to see many large and small game alike including the rare ones like the long-necked gerenuks, and the oryxes.
Where to stay in the 5 day Big 5 Safari to Tanzania
This is a ‘lodging safari’ so you will be staying in a nice mixture of comfortable lodges and tented camps for that ‘out of Africa’ feel, but if you wish you can also do an ‘all lodge stay’ safari at a revised price. Just let us know if you want that.
At Tarangire for example we can highly recommend the nice mid-range Sangaiwe Tented Lodge with great views over the plains and the Lake Burunge further afield.
