The Serengeti region includes the Serengeti National Park itself, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Maswa Game Reserve, the Loliondo, Grumeti and Ikorongo Controlled Areas and the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.
The vast open plain of Serengeti with the largest concentration of wildlife in the world and famous for annual wildlife migration. Over a million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras flow south from the northern hills to the southern plains for the short rains every October and November, and then swirl west and north after the long rains in April, May and June.
With an area covering almost 50,000 square km, which is larger than Switzerland, the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania is one of the largest areas set aside for wildlife preservation anywhere in the world and is relatively undisturbed by human impact, the selous is Safari Tanzania! >> more

Ruaha is home to a huge diversity of wildlife and scenery and even though it is truely wild, it is far easier to get to than you may think. >> more
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is situated 180 km west of Arusha in the Crater Highlands area of Tanzania. Ngorongoro was declared a conservation area in 1959 and at that point it was separated from the Serengeti National Park, It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. Land in the conservation area is multi-use, it is unique in Tanzania as the only conservation area providing protection status for wildlife whilst allowing human habitation.
The Ngorongoro Crater
The main feature of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is the Ngorongoro Crater, which is the world's largest unbroken volcanic cauldron. The steep sides of the crater mean that it has become a natural enclosure for a very wide variety of wildlife, including herds of zebra, gazelle, giraffe, wildebeest, rhinoceros, lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo (The Big 5) infact most of the species found in East Africa!
Tarangire National Park
Tarangire has alot less visitors thant that of the Serengeti and the place has the feeling of being a remote wilderness, especially as you drive further south as they are very rarely visited by anyone. Located 120km from Arusha, Tarangire is the sixth largest park in Tanzania. With baobab and acacia trees, much like the Serengeti, Tarangire National Park is home to a legions of elephants and you will also find rhino, buffalo, eland, warthog, the fringe-eared oryx, lesser and greater kudu, gerenuk and a large number of impala.
Tarangire National Park is one of the most underrated parks and you could spend a great deal of time exploring this park. It’s usually a stop over day between the Serengeti or Ngorongoro Crater.
Tarangire has some reknown lodges, including the Tarangire Treetops Lodge and Tarangire Sopa Lodge.
Arusha National Park
On the foothills of Volcanic Mount Meru, Arusha National Park is a national park in the Arusha Region of north eastern Tanzania. Although not large, it covers three distinct areas. Momela lies to the east, and has shallow alkaline Momella Lakes in varying algal colours and known for their wading birds. Ngurdoto, to the south, is grassland, featuring the Ngurdoto Crater. West is the Meru Crater and the Jekukumia River and Mount Meru which is the second highest peak in Tanzania at 4566m
