This itinerary focuses on offering the best possible Northern Circuit Tanzania safari for the dry season from July to October. Not only must you consider the parks to visit but also carefully select which areas of the parks to visit in order to maximise on game viewing.
These winter months will offer warm and sunny days and chillier nights and early mornings, with fewer mosquitos! From a safari perspective, there will be thinner vegetation and limited water sources, making wildlife easier to spot.
Our selected circuit includes a stay at the Tarangire National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti National Park. The Tarangire is a must-see in the dry months, particularly if you are looking for large herds of elephants. These animals will congregate around the permanent waters of the Tarangire River, making for excellent photo opportunities. To potentially catch the Serengeti's wildebeest herds during these months we have selected a camp based in the northern Serengeti.
Whatever your budget, our travel experts will work with you and give expert advice to make the very most of your available time and funds. They will guide you on the best time of year to travel, select the best value destinations and secure the little ‘add-ons’ that will make your tailor-made trip that extra bit special.
We are confident that we will offer highly competitive rates direct from our supplier network but we are always happy to compare with other quotes to ensure you secure the best value.
