To do a Safari through some of the most known National Parks in the world is the experience of a life time! After arriving in Arusha, near the Kilimanjaro, we toured the northern national parks of Tanzania for one week: Lake Manyara, the Serengeti, the N´gorongoro Crater and Tarangire.
On the flight to Tanzania, we anxiously wondered if we would get to see plenty of wildlife, elephants, zebras and wild beasts, not talking about lions, rhinos or cheetahs. Well, what a surprise, after our arrival. The number of animals was sheer overwhelming. Since it was the right time of the year we also got to see lots of newly born zebras and wild beasts staggering around on their skinny legs.
Zebras, wild beasts, giraffes are a common and universal sight but they still didn’t go unnoticed even after a week. So were large herds of elephants, hippos, thousands of buffalos, many different kinds of gazelles, monkeys and birds! Even lions became a regular sight, the absolute highlights were the viewings of two rhinos grazing happily in the plain of N’gorongoro Crater, a cheetah circling our jeep and a leopard hiding up in a tree.
But above all we enjoyed the enormous vastness and the fabulous quietness of the northern Serengeti and the comfort of the lodges. Again, an unforgettable experience!
