Northern Circuit

Almost all safaris begin in Arusha and then head on to the respective National Parks. Each park is unique and a visit to each of the parks is recommended.

For example, the Serengeti features the famous migration of the wildebeest, whilst you can see tree climbing lions in Lake Manyara. 

Tarangire has an abundance of elephant, and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area has the most beautiful scenery from the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater.
