ARUSHA –A stop over to the most famous safari destinations in the Northern circuit

‘This is a land of superlative with the greatest wild life spectacle in Africa’
Probably you have plan your trip and you don’t know what exactly you are going to experience in the Northern circuit of Tanzania; JovagoTanzania shares an experience that you will never forget for your life time.

Just an hour drive from Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA) and you will be in the heart of Tanzania’s northern highlands. You can also fly in to Arusha International Airport or arrive via bus from Dar es Salaam.

Arusha is a home to Mount Meru which is often trekked in preparation for the more challenging climb to Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak. You can also climb Ol Doinyo Lengai, East Africa’s only active volcano, situated south of Lake Natron where it’s possible to camp to enjoy amazing views of the Great Rift Valley.

Arusha, is not only a place to enjoy about Maasai life style, but also is the gateway to some of the most famous safari destinations in the world. Just ahead 120km from the town and you arrive at
Lake Manyara National Park. The moderately small park contains both thick bush land and forest boasting some 350 species of birds and mammals

Southeast of Manyara you will find the 4000 sq km of terrain comprising the Tarangire National Park and adjoining Conservation Area. Tarangire is famed for its elephant herds, ancient baobab trees and tree-climbing lions. The area also seems an annual migration of elephants, wildebeest, zebra and fringe-eared Oryx.
Ngorongoro, a UN World Heritage Site, is a multi-use conservation area covering 8,200 sq km. Here you can find Maasai communities living side-by-side with game. It is known as the ‘Cradle of Mankind’ because of the ancient hominid finds from Oldupai Gorge that offer clues to the origins of mankind. Descend into one of the world’s largest volcanic craters to see some 30,000 large mammals. Here you find grassland, forests and swamps. Striking flocks of flamingos feed around Lake Magadi while the rare black rhino may be found in surrounding grassland. Within the conservation area there are a number of luxury lodges. Campsites, hotels and lodges at different price ranges are found nearby in the Karatu area.
Olduvai Gorge
Serengeti, the ‘land of endless plains’ has a national park covering 14,760 sq km and is famed for the annual wildlife migration that occurs between December and July. You can access the park by road or fly to the several airstrips in the vicinity.
