Tour Overview

The Serengeti Great Migration has been listed as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Not only does it offer incredible views of the plains dotted with huge herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle, but the rivers are often infected with large Nile crocodiles lying in wait. Some of the best safari opportunities in the world are found here, across a landscape made up of volcanic grasslands and vast plains interrupted by rocky outcrops, rivers, and forests. Visiting the right area in the right season will treat travellers to astonishing sightings of this natural phenomenon.

These migratory herds also attract the attention of some of the continent’s most renowned predators, ensuring that if travellers are following the Migration; big cats, crocodiles, and hyenas will never be too far behind.
PLACES TO VISIT: NGORONGORO CRATER, SERENGETI

Day 1: Dar es Salaam - Saadani National Park

Your Tour guide will meet and greet. Give a short briefing of the day’s activities and shortly after at 05:00 hrs depart to Saadani National Park. Arrival for game viewing.

BIRD WATCHING AND BOAT SAFARI

In the afternoon you take a boat safari, we’ll look out for birds as we drive towards the Wami River. The Wami empties into the Indian Ocean, and its waters and swamplands are home to a large population of hippo, crocodile and water birds.

SAADANI TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

Saadani National Park is truly unique because it’s right on the Indian Ocean. The beautiful white sand beaches are stunning but you’re more likely to see lions or elephants on the beach than sunbathers.

A wide range of grazing animals are commonly seen on game drives and walks through Saadani National Park. These include giraffe, buffalo, warthog, waterbuck, reedbuck, hartebeest, wildebeest, greater kudu, eland, sable, yellow baboon and vervet monkey along with herds of elephant and many other creatures of all sizes.

ARRIVAL AT SAADANI NATIONAL PARK FOR GAME DRIVE

Expecting the unexpected is a good rule for your game drive in Saadani. You never know what you’ll see but your guide will be looking out for land animals like elephant, lion, giraffe, buffalo, zebra, waterbuck and sable antelope and birds like the African hornbill.

There’s a good chance of spotting hippo, crocodile and a selection of marine and riverine birds, including the mangrove kingfisher and lesser flamingo, on stretches of the Wami River, and although they’re usually only spotted at dawn or dusk, the beaches here are one of the last major green turtle breeding sites on mainland Tanzania.

LUNCH ON THE BEACH

You’ll enjoy a picnic lunch on the beach with its white sand and sparkling clear water. If you’re a romantic, bring your loved one – it doesn’t get much better than this.

After lunch you’ll continue your game drive or you can take a boat safari if you wish.

In the late afternoon or early evening we’ll start the drive back to Dar es Salaam where we’ll drop you back at your hotel. It’s been a long, exciting day and you’ll have a lot of amazing stories to share.
