Newly added for 2020, experience Tanzania and show your camera the wild side of photography!!! During the months of December – April, the wildebeests are always at Ndutu area within Ngorongoro conservancy. They spend time in Ndutu plains calving, so we will see many wildebeest calves.

A hyena runs through flamingos.

We will spend 3 nights in Ndutu . Ndutu plains is located at the boundary of Ngorongoro conservancy and Southern Serengeti.

The jewel in Ngorongoro's crown is a deep, volcanic crater, the largest un flooded and unbroken caldera in the world. About 20kms across, 600 meters deep and 300 sq kms in area, the Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtaking natural wonder.

Then we head to from Ndutu plains, to Gol Kopjes in the Serengeti National park.

Granite islands of Gol Kopjes. The Kopjes are granitic rock formations or gneiss of volcanic origin. Millions of years ago, lava and ashes from volcanic eruptions, that took place in the area, deposited sediments here. During the course of millennia, they caused the formation of these outcrops. . It is called the world's largest Japanese rock garden, and can offer fantastic game viewing in Africa during the green season.

The Gol Kopjes had one of the highest concentrations of cheetahs in Africa.

We will stay in camp around the Gol Kopjes for 3 nights, then move to Southwest part of Central Serengeti is where you find the Moru Kopjes. This is the place with black rhinos as well.

The Kopjes are rock formations that give preying cats vantage points while hunting.

We stay 2 nights in Moru Kopjes. This gives us more time to explore the area. Serengeti is a huge park.

Central Serengeti is where the Seronera Valley is located. This is a marshy ground with several rivers running through, enabling many resident animals to thrive year-round since this is where most wildlife come to drink water.

 From Central Serengeti, one can easily access Eastern, Southern, Northern and Western Serengeti, depending on where there is wildlife concentration and activity is.

We stay there 2 nights before we start our journey back towards Arusha and home .


PLEASE NOTE- There is NO smoking while on game drives. And please respect the wildlife.
