Northern Circuit

It includes the world famous Serengeti, Lake Manyara, Tarangire and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the latter with the Ngorongoro Crater, the Crater Highlands and the Ngorongoro Plains, which is part of the Serengeti ecosystem. The northern circuit has the advantage of having the parks decidedly close or in a neighbouring area, allowing you to experience very different habitats and ecosystems with short transfers by African standards. Also of great interest in the northern circuit are the Lake Natron region with the active Oldoinyo Leng’ai volcano, the Lake Eyasi region (home to the interesting human groups of Cushite Datoga herders and the Hadzabe hunters), and the Western Kilimanjaro region.

The time to spend in each park will depend on the interests and photographic needs of each guest. As a rough idea, one day will be enough for Lake Manyara, a day or two (at most) will suffice for the Ngorongoro Crater, one or two days to be devoted to Tarangire, at least two days (preferably three or four) for the Serengeti.

Below we include a list with some sample itineraries. To see a description of the parks or the areas visited, just click on the name of the park or the area in question. The list of itineraries shown below is by no means exhaustive and they can all be modified (shortened or extended for each park or area visited, according to personal interests), and various types of accommodation are available (see Accommodation). You will have good chances to see the famous migration by carefully choosing the area of the Serengeti to explore according to the season. Depending on arrival and departure flight times, each of the itineraries listed may require an additional night in Arusha at the beginning and/or end of the safari.
