The Northern Safari Circuit of Tanzania includes some of the most famous and remarkable sights in the world, such as the annual Wildebeest Migration and the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater. Certain locations are very popular and early bookings are recommended to ensure you can have your ideal Tanzania safari.

Northern Circuit Safaris start in Arusha, usually by car, though it is popular to fly either to the Serengeti National Park, or the way back. The international airport serving the Northern Circuit (and Kilimanjaro) is Kilimanjaro International Airport - KIA for short. KIA is about half way between Arusha Town and Moshi Town.

There are a number of slightly less visited destinations in Northern Tanzania, which are not part of the normal tourist trail and offer unique African experiences.

  • Usambara Mountains
  • Mkomazi Game Reserve
  • Ol Doinyo L'Engai active Volcano & Lake Natron
  • Rubondo Island National Park
  • Lake Eyasi

  • We had an excellent time and the trip was very well planned, the guides (and vehicles) excellent. Thank you very much for arranging it all!

  • All the Parks visited are really wonderful, especially Ruaha and the "king" Katavi that worth absolutely the long trip (at least in our point of view). Yahaya and Salim are like two friends.
