Rufous-tailed Weaver - © James F Wittenberger and Exotic Birding ToursNorthern Tanzania embodies everyone's vision of East Africa. It offers numerous colorful and unusual birds in a variety of habitats plus sweeping savannas home to game animals and predatory mammals. Our extended Tanzania birding and big game safari is the same as our standard tour but also includes a traverse of the western Serengeti and two nights on the shores of Lake Victoria where some specialty birds are found. The tour begins with a full day in Arusha National Park followed by a morning spent outside Arusha looking for the rare and endemic Beesley's Lark along with other birds of dry savanna. The tour continues to Tarangire National Park, a less visited place of beautiful savanna studded with Baobab trees that is home to a large Elephant population and various endemic birds. Of special note are Yellow-collared Lovebird, Ashy Starling, and Rufous-tailed Weaver. From there the tour proceeds to Ndutu, an extension of the southern Serengeti, where Blue Wildebeest spend the rainy seasonCheetah - © James F Wittenberger and Exotic Birding Tours calving and where predatory cats including Cheetahs are quite common. Then transfer to the central Serengeti, which provides the best chance for seeing Leopards, most easily seen around Seronera. From Seronera the tour route drops back south to famed Ngorongoro Crater, where the crater rim features several highland specialties and the crater floor offers excellent game viewing as well as birding. The tour concludes with an overnight stay near Gibb's Farm, situated at the outside base of the Ngorongoro caldera, where additional bird species await. Accommodations are comfortable throughout the tour.
