Tanzania is blessed with some of the best safari destinations on the planet. The government has also done a wonderful job in protecting so much of the land to preserve this great asset. In fact 28% of Tanzania's terrestrial land is under protected status.
By far the most sought after destinations for safaris are in the north of the country. With the magnificent Mt. Kilimanjaro also being located in the north, this area receives the most number of tourists. The town of Moshi and Arusha city are where most safari tours start from. We prefer Moshi due to its small town atmosphere, its cleanliness and the wonderful backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro. If you prefer Arusha though, we can easily begin the itinerary from there. Both towns are located 45 minutes from Kilimanjaro International Airport.
The Northern Safari Circuit consists of Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Lake Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park, Arusha National Park and Mkomazi National Park. Although they are located close to one another, each park has its own unique qualities that make visiting several of them worthwhile. Eco-Africa Climbing Offers luxury lodge safaris, permanent tented safaris as well as camping safaris. We can fit most every budget. You can choose to fly into parks by small plane or by safari vehicle. Our vehicles are all well maintained 4x4 wheel drive with safari viewing roofs. On our camping safaris, we supply quality tents and we prepare meals for you. We can accommodate special diet needs (if notified before the trip).

Lake Manyara National Park offers breathtaking views and a large variety of habitats. Acacia woodlands, water forests, baobab strewn cliffs, algae-streaked hot springs, swamps and the lake itself. And thanks to this the small Park is able to support a large number of animal species and incredible bird life. Manyara has the largest concentration of baboons anywhere in the world and the lions here are also renowned for their tree climbing. Dinner and overnight at Heaven Nature Lodge and campsite.

Day 3: Ngorongoro Crater – Moshi or Arusha
After an early breakfast, You will descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro conservation Area supports
avast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park, is it’s dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater.
A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually been seen here. Late afternoon transfer to Moshi or Arusha For dinner and Overnight or airport drop off. (
Accommodation can be included upon request at extra cost )
NB:This safari can be done by replacing Lake Manyara National Park with Tarangire National Park if you wish so. Tarangire is especially a nice National Park during the months of July
through November. If you wish to add an extra day you may be able to do both Lake Manyara National Park and Tarangire National Park.
