Serengeti National Park
“the golden plains”
Due to it’s scenery and magnificent diversity in wildlife, Serengeti is the most popular among Aloito Africa visitors. The name originates from the Maasai word, “siringet” which means a place where the land runs on forever. The Serengeti ranges from savanna, endless plains of grasslands and enchanting woodlands. It is most famously known for the spectacular migration of over 1 million wildebeest and 250 000 zebra that takes place annually and is assumed to have one of the largest population of lions in Africa.
Throughout the Serengeti you will also see Kopjes which are stacks of rocks that peak out over the grasslands. Lions will often be found here, examining their surroundings or relaxing in the sun. Pride Rock from “The Lion King” movie was inspired by these Kopjes.
If you’re interested in experiencing Serengeti National Park from up above, we can also arrange a Hot Air Ballon Safari during your visit.
We highly recommend this park as it provides diverse animal viewings!
Tarangire National Park
“home of the elephant”
Tarangire boasts of it’s high concentration of elephants and is the perfect place to experience this extraordinary animal on a more intimate level.
It’s landscape, speckled with large baobab trees, many bird species and the Tarangire River offers a view that’s filled with beauty. The river is the only permanent water supply in the area and attracts many wild animals during the dry season months.
Many safaris headed to Serengeti and Ngorongoro will stop along their journey to visit Tarangire National Park.
“a mini safari paradise”
Lake Manyara National Park is also located along the road to Serengeti and Ngorongoro.
Here you will find a strip of land surrounded by the rift valley and a large soda-lake. Flamingos gather around the lake during the green season months while many bird species can be viewed throughout the year.
Elephants and hippos may be spotted here and if you’re lucky, you may have an opportunity to see a tree climbing lion.
A perfect place to spend the day exploring!
