AFRICA'S BIG FIVE

When planning a Safari you are bound to come across the term Big Five which

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.

African Lion

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.

African Leopard

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.

African Elephant

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

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.

Rhino

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.

Itinerary View All

Day 1: Arrive to Tanzania

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.

Day 2: Arusha - Tarangire
Non game-viewing travel time: 1:40 Hours
Distance: 110.33km or 68.56miles

After breakfast your driver/guide, will be ready there to pick you head into the Tarangire National Park for a game drive. The park runs along the line of the Tarangire River and is mainly made up of low-lying hills on the Great Rift Valley floor. Its natural vegetation mainly consists of Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with huge swamp areas in the south. Both the river and the swamps act like a magnet for wild animals, during Tanzania’s dry season. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa. This African national park is also home to three rare species of animals – the Greater Kudu, the Fringed-eared Oryx, as well as a few Ashy Starlings. We eat lunch at picnic after which we continue with game until late evening, then drive to the accommodation for overnight.

Day 3: Tarangire - Serengeti
Non game-viewing travel time: 3 Hours
Distance: 172 km, 107miles

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.

Day 4: Serengeti

After breakfast continue with game viewing drive along the Sogore River Circuit, which loops into the plains south of the Seronera River, and which is good for possible Lion, Thomson gazelle, topi, ostrich and cheetah sightings. In the afternoon we will enjoy a relaxed picnic lunch at the centre in the shade of the giant acacia trees or hot lunch at the lodge. After lunch, we will follow the Kopjes Circuit, which goes anti-clockwise around the Maasai Kopjes, which usually attract a number of lion and some formidably large cobras. Kopjes are weathered granite outcrops, scattered around the plains, most of which are miniature ecosystems, providing shade and drinking water in pools left in the rock after the rains. This makes the kopjes particularly good for spotting wildlife in the dry seasons – including lions, which like to lie in wait for animals coming to drink! If you booked for a hot balloon this will be the day to ride

Day 5: Serengeti

After breakfast we head towards the western reaches of the Serengeti National Park, also known as the Western Corridor. We will do a game drive en-route from the Seronera area to the Western Corridor area. We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and after lunch will we enjoy an afternoon game drive in the area. The wildebeest migration can normally be found in the Western Corridor area in June, depending on rainfall patterns.

Day 6: Serengeti - Ngorongoro carter
Non game-viewing travel time: 2 Hours
Distance: 147 km, 91 miles

After breakfast we continue with game drive until lunch time. After lunch we head to Ngorongoro for overnight. On the way we can experience the Maasai traditional life and experience a little bit of these cultural people lives in the Ngorongoro conservations.

Day 7: Ngorongoro crater - JRO
Non game-viewing travel time: 4 Hours
Distance: 181.21 km, 112.60miles

After early breakfast 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, its 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.

After lunch we will start ascending from the crater and go straight to Airport.
