Overview

The annual journey of the Great Migration spanning across Tanzania is one of the most phenomenal wildlife events in the world. Millions of wildebeest and zebras migrate in a circular journey from the Serengeti Plains in Tanzania to the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya in search of fresh grassland and then back to the Serengeti every year.

 

The visuals of the herds moving across the crocodile-infested rivers are a sight not to be missed, with predators and crocs waiting upon a chance to feast on the herd, while the wildebeest and zebras galloping to save their lives is a spine-chilling experience. The Great Migration can be witnessed for around nine months and in the Mara region for three months, which Makes Tanzania the best destination to watch the Wildebeest Migration Safaris.

 

Ngorongoro Crater, extinct volcanic caldera in the Eastern (Great) Rift Valley, northern Tanzania. … Ngorongoro is thought to have formed about 2.5 million years ago from a large active volcano whose cone collapsed inward after a major eruption, leaving the present vast, unbroken caldera as its chief remnant.

The crater has evolved into a unique and integral part of Tanzania’s ecosystem.

The crater is actually a caldera, measures 22.5 km’s across and the rim walls stand 600m high. Views from within and from the rim are breathtaking.

Day 04 & 05: Balloon Safari & Game Drive at North Serengeti National Park

Balloon Safaris:

One of the most magically memorable of the Serengeti experiences, a balloon safari allows you to drift in silence above the splendour of the plains, to dip down to visit the hippo pools of the Grumeti River, and to enjoy a bird's eye view of the wildlife theatre as it is enacted below you.
Awakened by an early-morning cup of tea (around 5.30 am) you will be driven to the balloon take-off point, where you will meet your fully-qualified balloon pilot and watch as the team inflates the vast rainbow-colored balloon.

As dawn breaks, the balloon slowly rights itself, the guests are helped into the wicker basket (a typical balloon carries around 8 passengers and is equipped with seats and safety belts), the sandbags are cast off, and the balloon rises majestically into the cool of the morning air.

Driven by the wind, and guided by jets of hot air from the gas-burners (which allow it to rise or fall according to the pilot's direction), the balloon will fly for a period of around 45 minutes (trailed by a team of ground vehicles). Eventually, it descends to a gentle controlled landing on the plains.

To celebrate, the ground crew offers the guests a glass of chilled champagne, while the pilot prepares their personal ‘flight certificates'. Later, everyone sits down to a full English breakfast, which is traditionally cooked on the burners of the balloon. After breakfast, guests can enjoy a leisurely game drive back to the lodge.
