When planning a Safari you are bound to come across the term Big Five which refers to the five big game, i.e., African Lion, African Leopard, African Elephant, Rihno and Cape buffalo.
"African Big Five", the expression was initially begat by early game hunters who perceived that these species were the hardest and most risky creatures to chase by walking. This made them the greatest prizes, thus, the Big Five. However, now-a-days the term has come to speak as the most looked after safari sightings.
He's frequently alluded to as the ruler of the creatures, and it's not difficult to perceive any reason why. The African lion is the undisputed lord of the sub-Saharan savannah and is the world's second-biggest feline after the tiger. In spite of the fact that lions once in a while chase amid the day, they are regularly increasingly dynamic during the evening which is the reason most daytime safari sightings are of felines dozing in the shade. Lions can rest for up to 20 hours per day.
The African leopard is the most elusive of the Big Five creatures. Normally bashful and solely night time, leopard spend the sunlight hours hidden from sight. They are great climbers, utilizing trees to check for prey and to store new slaughters from scroungers like lions and hyena. Leopards are sublimely disguised with a progression of dark spots, or rosettes.
The African elephant is the world's biggest and heaviest land creature, with the greatest individual on record tipping the scales at more than 10 tons/22,000 pounds. They are found in 37 sub-Saharan nations and are fit for making due in a wide scope of various territories, from lavish wetlands to dry deserts.
Cape buffalo are found in water-rich diversion stores and national stops all through sub-Saharan Africa. There are four sub-types of Cape buffalo, the biggest of which is the one most normally found in East and Southern Africa.
There are two types of rhino in Africa: the dark rhino and the white rhino. Both are in danger of elimination because of the poaching plague caused by the interest for rhino horn in Asian societies. It is evaluated that there are around 5,000 dark rhino and 20,000 white rhino left in nature.

You will be picked up at the Kilimanjaro International Airport and transferred to Arusha town, at your arranged hotel. You will meet your driver guide who will brief you on your upcoming safaris, then rest until the next day morning.
Pick up from Migration Safaris and transfer to the Ngorongoro Conservation area. We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and after lunch we will descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife for an afternoon safari tour.
Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park, is it’s dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the south western corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually been seen here.
Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.
After breakfast we head towards the Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species.
We arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti national park.
Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation booked on trip.
After breakfast, enjoy a full day game drive in the Serengeti National Park. The area around Lobo and the Grumeti River has good resident game throughout the year. Non-migrating game like elephant, buffalo, gazelle, zebra, lion, leopard and cheetah can be seen here all year round. The game viewing is very good and you can follow game for long periods without seeing other vehicles – truly one of the forgotten corners of the Serengeti Plains. Magnificent riverine trees can be found along the river lines and bird life such as kingfishers and fish eagles can be found here.
Dinner and overnight in the Lobo area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.
Our day starts by descending into the Great Barranco, a huge ravine. We then exit steeply, up the Great Barranco Wall, which divides us from the southeastern slopes of Kibo. It’s a climb over rock, not technical, but long and tiring. Passing underneath the Heim and Kersten glaciers, we head towards the Karanga valley, which is our last stop for fresh water before the summit. Scree now forms the terrain as we walk through arid and desolate land towards Barafu camp.
We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and after lunch we will descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife for a half day’s safari tour. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park, it’s dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually been seen here.
Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.
After breakfast enjoy a full day game drive in the Wagakuria area. Resident wildlife numbers are exceptionally high in the Wagakuria area, with prides of lion up to 30 strong, however from August to October the area turns into a wildlife paradise. The key feature is the Mara River and it is not uncommon to see the herds cross the Mara River north on one day and then back south a few days later. Please take note – to actually finding a crossing is very difficult and is sometimes a matter of luck. A herd can be seen next to river and only decide to cross or not cross until a couple of days later. This area is a stunning region with kopjes, woodland, riverine vegetation and open plains, similar to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve.
Dinner and overnight in the Wagakuria area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.
After breakfast at the lodge, we depart to the Kogatende airstrip and enjoy a game drive en-route to the airstrip.
Around mid-morning, join a scheduled flight from Kogatende airstrip to Migration Safaris airport. Upon arrival to Migration Safaris airport, meet our driver and transfer to Moshi/Migration Safaris town. You will be taken to your hotel, which ends our safari services.
