Karibu Central Serengeti

Central Serengeti, often referred to as Seronera, stands as the vibrant heart of the famed Serengeti National Park. Characterized by vast stretches of savannah interspersed with acacia trees, its landscape epitomizes the classic African safari setting. This region boasts an incredibly high concentration of wildlife year-round, thanks to the permanent Seronera River which ensures a constant water supply. As a result, big cat sightings, particularly lions, leopards, and cheetahs, are frequent and often spectacular here.

For avid bird-watchers, the Central Serengeti is a paradise, home to over 500 species of birds. Visitors will also appreciate the network of well-maintained roads, making game drives relatively seamless. The vastness of the plains ensures you’ll always find a peaceful spot to soak in nature’s wonders. Interestingly, the area is dotted with ‘kopjes’—ancient granite rock formations that offer panoramic views and often serve as lounging spots for lions. The Central Serengeti is also a gateway to other parts of the park, making it a strategic base for extended exploration. No visit to Tanzania is complete without experiencing the wild allure and breathtaking beauty of this iconic region.

Olduvai Gorge

The Olduvai Gorge is known as the “Cradle of Mankind”. It is where the oldest archaeological discoveries were made by Richard Leakey and his family. The Leakey’s discovered the remains of the very first hominids in Olduvai Gorge in the early 20th Century. They went on to make some groundbreaking discoveries with most of them older than 2 million years ago. The fossils include that of extinct animals that roamed the area and the more recent stone age man.


Empakai Crater Walk

This is the smaller sibling of the Ngorongoro Crater. The Empakaai Crater was also formed when a volcano collapsed into a 6-kilometer-wide caldera. It is a lesser known crater but with a lot to offer. Much of it is covered by a deep alkaline lake that is 85 meters deep .The rims of the crater are home to pink flamingos, blue monkeys, water bucks, bush bucks, buffaloes, elephants and hyenas. Beyond the crater are stunning views of Mount Kilimanjaro and Ol Doinyo Lengai.


Olmoti Crater Walk

Among the Maasai, Olmoti means cooking pot. The shallow crater is found within the Ngorongoro conservation area highlands and stands at 3080 meters above sea level.
It is where most of the Maasai herdsmen take their domestic animals for grazing alongside buffaloes, bushbucks, eland and reedbuck. You can crown your tour of the Crater by visiting a nearby waterfall (100 meter) that feeds into Lake Magadi.
