Background
Hippo pool SerengetiThis safari explores three of the most beautiful parts of Northern Tanzania. Visiting and staying with the Masai is an experience few get to have and one that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. The N’gorongoro Crater is part of the larger N’gorongoro Conservation Area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The crater was formed by volcanoes and inhabits a variety of Tanzania’s wildlife, especially rhinoceros that are not present in most other national parks.

Lake Manyara National Park borders the Rift Valley escarpment and Lake Manyara itself is the home to a large flamingo population.
