Tarangire offers unparalleled game viewing

After spending a night in Arusha, drive to Tarangire National Park which offers unparalleled game viewing especially in the dry season when elephants abound. 

The breathtaking views of the Maasai Steppe and the mountains in the south make a stopover at Tarangire National Park a memorable experience. Large herds of elephant can be seen scratching the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. Tarangire is renowned for dry-country antelope. It's here where you can observe the Fringe-eared Oryx as well as the Long-necked Gerenuk. After exploring in the wild, relax at the Lemala Mpingo Ridge for two nights with all your meals and local drinks included.

Enjoy more of the wildebeest migrating

Drive to the Serengeti National Park and enjoy watching the great wildebeest migration. Stay in the Lemala Nanyukie located just outside of the Seronera circuit for three nights with all your meals included. 

This tented camp is situated just outside of the Seronera circuit allowing some private game viewing but in reach of the world famous Seronera area - famous for its large concentration of cats and resident wildlife due to its abundance of water in the many rivers. Additionally, the tented suites cater for honeymooners with private bush dinners, small groups, and families. 

Experience guided wildlife viewing, bird watching and nature walks in the central Serengeti, while balloon safaris are a romantic and evocative way of experiencing the wilderness of East Africa. This affords you a unique perspective as you silently fly over the plains.
