Tanzania is blessed with some of the best safari destinations on the planet. The government has also done a wonderful job in protecting so much of the land to preserve this great asset.
In fact 28% of Tanzania's terrestrial land is under protected status. By far the most sought after destinations for safaris are in the north of the country. With the magnificent Mt. Kilimanjaro also being located in the north, this area receives the most number of tourists. The town of Moshi and Arusha city are where most safari tours start from.
We prefer Moshi due to its small town atmosphere, its cleanliness and the wonderful backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
If you prefer Arusha though, we can easily begin the itinerary from there. Both towns are located 45 minutes from Kilimanjaro International Airport. The Northern Safari Circuit consists of Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Lake Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park, Arusha National Park and Mkomazi National Park. Although they are located close to one another, each park has its own unique qualities that make visiting several of them worthwhile.
