Embark on an unforgettable 6-day adventure with ZAFS Tours, exploring the natural wonders of Tanzania's most iconic wildlife destinations. Your safari journey begins with your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), where our friendly team will greet you and ensure a smooth transfer to your comfortable accommodation in Arusha. Enjoy a restful night, preparing for the thrilling days ahead.

Tarangire National Park, located in northern Tanzania, is known for its diverse wildlife and iconic baobab trees. The park is especially renowned for its large herds of elephants and is often called "The Elephant Playground." Visitors can also spot lions, leopards, giraffes, and various antelope species. Tarangire River flows through the park, attracting a multitude of animals during the dry season.

Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Africa's most
spectacular natural wonders. The crater is a caldera formed by the collapse of a volcano, and it's often referred to as the "Garden of Eden" due to its lush landscapes and high wildlife density. Visitors can see the Big Five (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros) along with numerous other species like hyenas, and hippos. Game drives into the crater provide an opportunity to witness this unique ecosystem up close.

Serengeti National Park is synonymous with the Great Migration, where millions of
wildebeest and zebras traverse the vast plains in search of water and fresh grazing. It's one of the most iconic safari destinations in Africa. Apart from the migration, Serengeti offers year-round wildlife viewing, including predators like lions, cheetahs, and leopards. Hot air balloon safaris are also popular here, providing a bird's-eye view of the sprawling landscapes and herds below.

Central Serengeti (Seronera): Seronera plains in the central Serengeti is a year-round wildlife haven. It's known for its resident big cats, including prides of lions and leopards. The area offers excellent game viewing opportunities with rolling plains and kopjes (rocky outcrops) that are favorite resting spots for lions.

Balloon Safari (Optional): A hot air balloon safari in the Serengeti is a magical way to experience the park's vast landscapes and wildlife from above. It offers a serene and panoramic view of the savannah, with a chance to spot animals from the air. The experience usually includes a champagne breakfast upon landing, making it a luxurious adventure.
