Places to Visit

Tanzania is most famous for its national parks and conservancies, in which its diverse wildlife can be seen up close and personal from the back of a safari vehicle, on foot, by canoe, or even by hot air balloon.

The 'Northern Circuit' comprised of Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro are the best known parks and allow you to see the Big Five as well as the Great Wildebeest Migration. All located within a day's drive of Arusha, these four parks can be seen in under a week but create a lifetime of memories.
