6 Day Luxury Tanzania Safari Highlights
The highlights of this medium length safari in Tanzania is the best park in Africa; the Serengeti National Park. Having voted as the best park in Africa across multiple awards, the Serengeti National Park features endless savannah plains where thousands of animals call home. Big and small game roam this vast wilderness spanning over 14,743 Km square, a truly legendary wildlife safari destination in Africa.
Serengeti National Park is a Big five destination so apart from many animals and birds, you may be luck to spot all the BIg Five of Africa; Elephants, Lions, Buffaloes, Leopards and Rhinos. Serengeti is also where the wildebeests herds of the famous Great Migration spend most of their time, migrating to Kenya only between August and October.
Apart from the Serengeti, you will visit the Ngorongoro Crater which is one of the few UNESCO world heritage sites. The Ngorongoro is also one f the world biosphere reserves, and recently the first geopark in East Africa was created within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA).
Best time for the 6 Days Luxury safari in Tanzania
This is a safari package that you can take any time of the year but the best time to take this luxury safari in Tanzania is during the drier months between June and October but also January to March. The other good time to visit is November to December when the parks are green and beautiful but also temperatures are cooler.
April & May are the long rains season and it is always good to avoid this time if you can, but if you want to enjoy the luxury accommodations and the luxury safari experience at a discount price, then this is the best time to visit. The lodges offer Green Season rates during the months Of April & May.
