Tanzania Northern Safari Circuit is the most visited by tourists since its parks are fairly close to each other. Many of the Tanzania’s most famous sights, such as Ngorongoro Crater/Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Serengeti National Park and Mount Kilimanjaro are all a part of this safari circuit. Due to the fact that all the parks are within easy reach of one another, one can tour this entire safari circuit by vehicle with only a couple of hours in-between destinations. The most visited part of the northern circuit is the Ngorongoro Crater, where wildlife graze and hunt in one of the largest volcanic craters in the world. Other parks in this circuit are Lake Manyara National Park and Tarangire National Park which are located less than 3 hour drive from Arusha town.
The Great Wildebeest Migration
The great migration of the wildebeest is also found in the northern Tanzania safari circuit specifically in the Serengeti. The wildebeest migration tends to be Serengeti for the duration of about 9 months from December to Late August of each year. The wildebeest migration is triggered mainly by rainfall where by the animals tends to move in search of the green pastures and fresh water. To see the migration closely it is advised to choose a mobile camp accommodation during your visit to Serengeti national park. For hikers, still the northern circuit has something to offer. Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro or the crater of Mt. Meru as well as the live Volcano of Oldoinyo lengai is an adventurous tour.
