This itinerary offers the “ultimate safari” through the Tanzanian most popular northern parks revolving around Ndutu in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It has been designed to coincide with the calving of the wildebeest that takes place in Ndutu from end of December / beginning of January to end of March / beginning of April. With some luck you will get to witness this great phenomenon which will be the highlight of your safari!!  

Your accommodation has been carefully selected to include relatively small to medium size properties that offer very personalized services with an exception of Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge which is a larger property but due to cool temperatures around the crater, we feel it will provide you with the much needed warmth. The right location is equally important and this has been considered too.
