3 Days Serengeti Safari | Ngorongro Crater & Olduvai Gorge

One of the most concentrated national parks on the African continent, the world-famous Serengeti National Park, may be explored on this 3-day Serengeti safari that is a well-organized and personalized safari package. Stunning landscapes, an abundance of wildlife, and a rich tapestry of cultures make Tanzania a safarier’s delight. On this 3-day Serengeti safari, you’ll also visit the famous Ngorongoro Crater, also known for its verdant landscapes and rich wildlife. The Serengeti Endless Plains is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is home to many animals, including lions, and cheetahs, and, during certain seasons, the annual wildebeest migration is likely to be experienced, among many others.

In the indigenous Maasai language, “Serengeti” means “endless plains,” and it is truly awe-inspiring to see the grassland stretch out into the distance before blending into the sky on the horizon. The Serengeti is home to the majestic “Big5″—elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, and leopard—and spans an expansive 14,763 square kilometers. Sightings of the “Big 5” and other stunning African animals, such as the impala, would make for a wonderful safari. The largest concentration of plains wildlife in Africa may be found in the Serengeti-Mara habitat. Due of its extraordinary lion and leopard populations, the illustrious Serengeti National Park is well known as a safari destination. One of the Serengeti’s most diverse ecosystems is located in the park’s central Seronera section. It showcases the Seronera River, a vital water supply that brings in animals that provide a good representation of the Serengeti’s biodiversity. Seronera is home to numerous lion prides, thus visitors should use extreme caution. Also, keep an eye out for the Serengeti “Kopjes,” which are huge granite rocks set in a sea of grass. Many different kinds of plants and animals find plenty of protection in them.
