Tanzania’s Northern Safari Circuit consists of some of the most renowned national parks in the world, from the impressive vastness of the Serengeti plains to the breath-taking views of the Ngorongoro Crater, a world heritage site.

Across these magnificent terrains exist a multitude of animals and the occurrence of one of the most magnificent events; the annual migration.

Over the years the Northern Circuit has developed immensely and is now the most easily accessible of circuits, taking only a few hours to travel from one destination to the next. It is also undoubtedly the most popular of circuits among both tourists and residence alike. Yet, despite its popularity the natural beauty of the Northern Circuit remains intact and unspoiled and is a fusion of beauty, history and culture that is not to be missed.

We have indicated a few sample programs to give you an idea of the types of tours one can do. All programs start with the first night in Arusha, on the assumption that you will be flying into Tanzania for the start of your holiday and the tours end in Arusha. Depending on your arrival and departure times we can tailor make all programs to suit you or plan a whole program specifically to your requirements.

Aside from the game viewing in the parks additional activities are possible such as hiking, visiting the Lakes, visiting a Maasai Village, visiting the Hadzabe (bushmen), Datoga and Barbaid tribes whose history dates back 100 years, village walks, canoeing, mountain biking, walking safaris, boat safaris etc that can be included in your program.
