Tanzania's Northern Safari Circuit includes some of the most famous and remarkable sights in the world, such as the annual Wildebeest Migration and the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater.
Combine the big game of Mikumi National park with the eastern arc forest, waterfalls and endemic primates of Udzungwa Mountains National Park. Mikumi is also an IUCN Important Bird Area and is outstanding for raptor viewing. Udzungwa is part of the Eastern Arc mountain range, know as the 'Galapagos of Africa' owing to its high degree of endemism. Please note discounted residents rates are available.

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.
