8 DAYS AMBOSELI/ L.MANYARA/ SERENGETI/ OLDUVAI GORGE/ NGORONGORO/ TARANGIRE/ ARUSHA
The plains of Amboseli is just below below the great Mountain of Kilimanjaro. The waters from molten snow drain down the mountain peaks under lava flows and surface in Amboseli creating a green belt of swampy land amidst dusty plains. Here, hippos, elephants and bird life can be seen against the backdrop of the magnificent snow-capped mountain.
Also the game parks of Northern Tanzania are amongst the best in the world and offer some unique game viewing. Ngorongoro Crater is renowned for its packs of Hunting Dogs and a wide range of other game. Lake Manyara provides a chance to see the tree-climbing lions, where the lions have developed a liking for residing in the branches of trees, up to five meters above the ground where they can both sleep and stalk their prey. Serengeti on the other hand is globally known as the origin of annual migration of the wildebeest.
