“If there were one more thing I could do,it would be to go on safari once again.”
Visiting the Ngorongoro Crater is like stepping into an adventure movie: a huge forested crater teeming with lions, cheetahs and flamingos! Stretching out into this near-perfect blue-green volcanic crater, this is the densest place for wildlife in Africa. You only need to walk the crater wall with your guide to enter one of the most extraordinary habitats on the African continent. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is said to be the best place to see the “big five”. Where else can you find the densest carnivores in Africa, as well as giant tusked elephants and fuchsia pink birds? The 25,000 large animals that live here in the most important and complete volcanic crater in the world, have earned the title of World Heritage and Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. Crossing the rim of the 610-meter (2000-foot) crater, overlooking the entire 264-square-kilometer (101-square-mile) crater, lush and lush, you can see the following wildlife for the first time: black rhino, hippopotamus, buffalo, zebra , Wildebeests, hyenas, jackals and gazelles-graze and sneak on the grasslands, acacia forests and swamps that fill the bottom of the volcano. It’s time to enter this extraordinary Garden of Eden and start a day of extraordinary discovery.
Even without its immense and varied wildlife population, the Ngorongoro Crater would be an unforgettable display of nature’s grandeur and beauty. Add in one of the largest concentrations of animals to be found anywhere and you have a not-to-be-missed safari experience.
Bougainvillea Safari Lodge is located on the outskirts of Karatu, between Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater.
There are 32 cabins in our lush landscaped hotel. Ten rooms of five double cabins are located in the coffee garden. The remaining rooms are located around the pool area.
Each comfortable room has a king-size bed or two single beds with mosquito nets, a walk-in closet, a fireplace, a large bathroom with shower, and a terrace with views of the lush tropical garden. The triple rooms can be notified in advance, and two of the cottages can be used as family suites with connecting rooms.
Everything about the Serengeti National Park is endless. Its vast meadow seems to stretch beyond the horizon. Millions of wildebeest are also advancing in the Great Migration – this is the largest movement of animals on the planet.
This is the most epic Africa. More than any other park on the planet. More than 2 million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle are migrating, navigating ancient natural cycles, amazed by tourists. The river here is full of crocodiles and hippos, and 500 species of birds fly overhead.
When you portray Africa, what may come to mind is the big picture of the Serengeti: a vast grassland, inhabited by a large number of elephants, hyenas, jackals, wolves, wild dogs, honey badgers and seven types of mongooses.
In this endless golden plain, the “Big Five”, such as buffalo and black rhinos, are readily available. The Serengeti Forest is home to a wide variety of baboons and monkeys.
The park is very spectacular and has been named one of the “Seven Natural Wonders of Africa” and one of the “Ten Natural Tourist Wonders of the World”. It has also been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But perhaps the name “Serengeti” comes from the Maasai word “siringet” or “endless plains” and best describes the wonder people feel at the oldest and most popular park in Tanzania.
Though most imagine the plains as the Serengeti, this immense reserve is actually divided into three eco-regions.
These are the great treeless expanses of grassland in the south which most think of as typifying the park. Here the wildebeest breed from roughly December to May. You’ll find other hoofed animals here like zebra, gazelle, impala, hartebeest, buffalo and waterbuck.
This area is mostly known for the Grumeti River and its surrounding forests, where crocodiles, monkeys, hippos and eagles dwell.
This area is primarily open woodlands and hills. Though not heavily visited, this region is a good environment to spot elephant and giraffe.
The vast Serengeti ecosystem is one of the planet’s oldest, its vegetation and wildlife are little different than they appeared a million years ago.
The area is a prehistoric cradle for mankind as well. Early man inhabited the nearby Olduvai Gorge about 2 million years ago. Signs of early tool making, and other artifacts have been found here.
ThornTree Camp is a classic tent-style safari camp, located in the Seronera area of the Serengeti National Park, about fifteen minutes from the Seronera airstrip and visitor center. The camp is open year-round; it offers traditional Tanzanian hospitality and cuisine. Camp is permanently located in the Seronella Valley in the middle of the Serengeti. Due to the continuous water supply, this is the home of wildlife throughout the year. The area is famous for observing lions, leopards and large herds of elephants. From the campsite, you can overlook the classic scenery of Banagher Mountain and the Serengeti Plain.
Kirurumu Serengeti Central Camp is a charming mobile camp that relocates seasonally to take full advantage of the vast Serengeti. The camp is used as a base, a springboard for an early morning safari park, a rest time for a good lunch, a hot respite from a hot day, and the end of a day of adventure where you can exchange stories by the campfire. As a small and private camp, the staff can only receive a very limited number of guests, so the level of care and service is always excellent.
In June, the campsite moved around the picturesque and unusually beautiful Morukopujes. Morro is a unique location for the Serengeti Rhino Project, and with the permanent waters of the area, it has a large population of León, the area is not crowded, and it is more remote and private. The residents’ games are very rich, that’s why there are so many lions. Migration may or may not pass through the area in June, and the migration pattern is difficult to determine in advance, depending on weather patterns and the availability of water for large herds.
