Drive to Ngorongoro, the park is the crater of a huge extinct volcano, which is said to be the world’s largest caldera and the right park to spot the BIG 5 animals.
Visit the less famous but no less of a drawcard which is Tarangire National park which covers quite a large area south-east of Lake Manyara, mainly along the course of the Tarangire River and the swamplands and floodplains which feed it from the east also the best place to see the herds of elephants and other wildlife animals.

If you are looking for the best experience of Tanzania Wildlife then this is it.
The main tourist season starts from June to October and December to March, as the weather at this time of year is generally considered to be the best — hot and dry. It’s also when you’ll find the largest concentrations of birdlife on the Rift Valley lakes – Lake Manyara and Lake Natron and the animals in the game parks in Ngorongoro and Tarangire tend to congregate more around the watercourses as other sources dry up, making them easier to spot. This time of the year is when you will witness the Great Serengeti Migration.
The average Tanzania weather day temperature is 30C with a possible maximum of 32C, except in the highlands, where the day range is 14C to 10C. There are four discernible seasons: the long rains from mid-March to mid-May, the long dry from mid-May to mid-October, the short rains from mid-October to mid-December and the short dry from mid-December to mid-March. During the wet seasons, the average rainfall is 175 mm per month. Humidity is generally low outside the wet seasons.

We (me , my wife and our 2 kids)are from London and selected Shizi Safari from internet on the basis of a small company with personalised care. I read about them on their website and trip advisor. Then I contacted Thomas who is a local lad and runs this company. Every time I phoned or texted him on Whats app he was very understanding and helpful. We planned together the itinerary which is as follows:- Arusha to Manyara NP, then Tarangire NP after that we spent 2 nights in Northern Serengeti ( Lobo Campsite) as we were interested in watching the migration, then a third night in Central Serengeti in a excellent tented lodge. From there we visited the Ngorongoro Crater for 1 day and then back to Arusha to fly back. The cost was very reasonable. What can I say?....Initially and even after reaching Arusha we were a bit sceptical as we didn't know whats it will be like....but I can say now that Shizi did live upto our expectation and beyond. Thomas himself was a very nice person to deal with and honest. But as we all know for a good safari you need a good guide. And we got a remarkable guide in the name of David Simba with us ( we saw his picture in the Shizi safari website) and a sturdy Toyota Land cruiser. He is a real wildlife enthusiast and very knowledgeable and knows the routes like the palm of his hand inspite of no Google maps etc in that wilderness. Moreover he knows probably half the other drivers and chefs. By the way we were given a wonderful chef Rojas with us for the Serengeti visit. Both of them kept my 9 and 14 year old children entertained and have shown great care for all of us. I am sharing some pictures below, but remember its African safari and not going to the zoo so we all need a bit of luck to see all the action which I don't think we had a lot. But that's in no ones hand. David tried his best to show us everything possible. Overall it was very enjoyable and pleasant trip and we came back with lots of good memories. I would highly recommend Shizi safari to everyone.
