Discover Tanzania

Tanzania is a country with infinite beauty for everyone to discover, and with Safari Infinity, we ensure that our guests will return home with an unforgettable experience that will last a lifetime. Karibu, Welcome to Tanzania!

Known as the land that hosts the largest land mammal migration in the world.

Tanzania is home to diverse and vibrant cultures, distinct landscapes, natural gems and world wonders. From the spectacular annual migration of over a million wildebeest and zebra that takes place in the Serengeti, to the “garden of Eden of East Africa”, known as the Ngorongoro Crater, and the enchanting Mahale Mountains where wild chimpanzees freely roam, Tanzania truly marks itself as the top safari destination in the world.

Experience first-hand the majestic and untamed wilderness that runs, stalks and hunts for survival. Be awed by the vivid beauty that can only be experienced as you immerse yourself in the bush experience. As you cruise freely through the endless plains, watch the sunset transform the sky into a mesmerizing orange haze, and listen to the sounds of the surrounding wilderness that lull you into a dreamlike reality—you will truly come to love this place we call home.

And as you return to your tented camp or lodge of the night, sit by the warm campfire and enjoy the humbling view of the starlit skies. As the night falls, the surrounding sounds of hoofbeats inevitably lull you to sleep like a magical spell. And it is then that Hemingway’s vivid description of his love for this land rings true: “All I wanted to do now was get back to Africa. We had not left it yet, but when I would wake in the night, I would lie, listening, homesick for it already.”

Serengeti
National Park

Northern Serengeti

Lobo Valley

The Lobo Valley is a mix of woodlands, open plains, hills and raised with granite kopjes. With permanent water sources, there is an abundance of resident game, offering excellent viewing opportunities especially for big cats such as lions, leopards and cheetahs.

Upper Grumeti Woodlands

The giraffe dominates the Upper Grumeti woodlands, feeding exclusively on the tender leaves of acacia trees. With the Grumeti River flowing across the top half of the Serengeti, before emptying into Lake Victoria, a distinctive gallery forest lines the banks of Grumeti River. This green and lush habitat supports species such as hippos, monkeys, baboons and fish eagles.

Bologonja Springs

With ample shade and fresh water, both migrating and resident animals are attracted to the lush and idyllic springs of Bologonya. Its flourishing resources also support some rare antelope species, including the elusive mountain reedbuck and steenbok. The centerpiece of Bologonja Springs is the Larelemangi Salt Lick, a haven for wildlife, especially for large herds of buffalo and elephant.

Wogakuria

Comprising of mostly open grasslands and studded with smooth granite kopjes, Wogakuria supports the highest concentration of cheetahs in Northern Serengeti while the surrounding broad-leaf woodlands sustain the rare and beautiful oribi antelope. Just northeast of the plains lies Wogakuria Kopjes, home to old buffalo bulls and the surefooted klipspringer antelope.

Mara Rivers

Famous for the legendary wildebeest river crossing and featured in countless wildlife documentaries, the Mara River hosts the most amazing spectacle in Africa. One of Tanzania’s best kept secret is the fact that nearly half of the Mara River is situated in the North Serengeti versus Masai Mara’s segment in Kenya. Birding along the Mara River include fish eagles, kingfishers, bee-eaters, weavers, and rare turaco.

Lamai Triangle

This triangular shaped watershed area, consisting of lush grassland with rolling hills and tree-lined waterways, is a critical refuge for migrating wildlife. During the dry season, the secluded Lamai Triangle holds more of the migration than the more tourist-heavy Masai Mara game reserve.

Central Serengeti

Seronera Valley

With a network of river valleys supplying a stable source of water, the Seronera Valley is home to the world’s largest and most diverse wildlife population of predators in the world. There is simply no better place to observe large carnivores in the wild along with a multitude of smaller predators like the jackal, bat-eared fox, serval and sandy-coloured caracal.

Turner Springs

Turner’s Spring was named after Myles Turner, a once chief wildlife warden in Serengeti National Park from 1956 to 1972. Due to Myles Turner’s continuous dedication for sustainable conservation and anti-poaching efforts, the large herds of wildlife within Africa’s finest wildlife sanctuary still roam free today. During dry season, Turner Springs is a magnet for wildlife.

Retina Pool

The Retina Pool offers the best hippo viewing in the Serengeti. You can leave the vehicle and view the hippos on foot from the top of the riverbank. Roughly 200 hippos are huddled together, playing, spouting, grunting in the deep pool of water, ensuring excellent photography and video opportunities.

Simba Kopjes

Simba Kopjes are the tallest kopjes in Serengeti and refuge for life as they provide excellent vantage points to survey the surrounding area for food sources. As the name ‘Simba’ suggests, this is great place to spot lions, oftentimes found basking under the sun.

Seronera River

With seasonal swamps and deep pools of water, the Seronera River keeps the vegetation plentiful, supporting the surrounding wildlife throughout the year. This is a good hunting ground for lions as they patiently wait at the base of the river to ambush their prey. The elusive leopards are also commonly spotted, usually resting in the branches of sausage trees.

Makoma Hill

There is tremendous conflict in this prey-rich area between the predators due to their overlapping territories. Directly in front of the hill lies a small but idyllic plain, which is used extensively by cheetahs and hyenas. The centerpiece of the plains lies the stunning Thatch Kopjes, a popular den site for the resident lion pride.

Moru Kopjes

The Moru Kopjes is home to the small population of the endangered black rhinos in the park. Be sure to also head to Gong Rock and see a series of Maasai rock paintings. The nearby saline Lake Magadi offers good sightings of pink flamingos.

West Serengeti

Mbalageti River Valley

The Mbalageti River Valley links the plains to the woodlands and forms a
natural corridor. This area consists of a thicket of acacia trees interspersed with disintegrated woodlands and open plains. Although less ventured by those visiting the Serengeti, the Western Corridor retains a substantial resident population of lion, wildebeest and zebra, and overall offers decent game viewing year round.

Grumeti Woodlands

Every year, thousands of migrating wildebeests and zebras take the cold plunge and cross the raging waters of the Grumeti River. Large predators such as Nile crocodiles, leopards and lions lie in wait for those injured in the effort, too weak for the strong currents or who get stuck in the muddy quagmire at the river’s edges. The lush tangled forests and thickets that shade the river is also home to the black-and-white colobus monkey.

Musabi Plains

Musabi is an extensive area of plains covered by acacia woodlands and a favored breeding ground of the topi antelope. The Musabi plains are also in areas of unimpeded drainage on black cotton soil, which when wet, make travel by car exceedingly difficult. Giraffes, elephants and warthogs are also commonly found here.

Ruwana Plains

There are two resident lion prides that inhabit the Ruwana Plains. Several large clans of hyena maintain territories within Ruwana and can frequently be seen hunting or battling with neighboring clans. The Ruwana waterhole is a unique spot to witness both lion and hyena hunting especially in the dry season.

East Serengeti

Naabi Hill

This hill blanketed by acacia trees acts as the Serengeti’s park gate and shelters antelope, elephant and giraffe. It’s also the home base for the Naabi lion pride and den site for cheetahs. During the green season, Naabi Hill is the epicenter of the great migration.

Gol Kopjes

The Gol Kopjes boast the highest concentration of cheetahs in Africa and offering the finest game viewing during the green season. With a little patience, there is a good chance to witness the world’s fastest land animal sprinting across the plains in pursuit of the fleet footed Thomson’s Gazelle.

Barfafu Gorge & Kopjes

Barafu Kopjes Complex, a series of seven pinkish granite kopjes that straddle the eastern border of the Serengeti

Sametu Marsh & Kopjes

Sametu Kopjes is a hidden gem on the remote edge of the Serengeti. The marsh, which lies directly in front of the kopjes, is fed by underground springs, attracting surrounding wildlife as it holds the only source of water in the area.

South Serengeti

Mbalageti River Valley

The Mbalageti River Valley links the plains to the woodlands and forms a
natural corridor. This area consists of a thicket of acacia trees interspersed with disintegrated woodlands and open plains. Although less ventured by those visiting the Serengeti, the Western Corridor retains a substantial resident population of lion, wildebeest and zebra, and overall offers decent game viewing year round.
