The Northern CircuitSafaris to Tanzania offer you the northern parks of Tanzania, amongst the most famous in the world. Tin Tin Tours can bring you to the home of the most dense concentration of wildlife of its kind in the world, destinations such as Ngorongoro and the Serengeti have unparalleled reputations for game viewing. The Serengeti alone attracts thousands of tourists and researchers per year. Arusha National ParkArusha National Park is located only 100km southwest of Moshi, making it a viable day-trip. With a total area of 137km2, there are over 50km of game viewing roads/tracks in the Ngurdoto and Momella sections of the park. To protect the Ngurdoto crater from the wear and tear of heavy traffic, the 3km crater is void of roads but several viewing spots on the rim offer spectacular game-viewing perches.

Tarangire National ParkTarangire National Park is located 180km from Moshi and covers 2600km2, making it the sixth largest park in Tanzania. Visitors to Tarangire are frequently entertained by encounters with browsing elephants which inhabit Tarangire in large herds. In the park you will also find other game such as buffalo, eland, warthog, the fringe-eared oryx and a large number of impala. Enormous baobab trees whose roots have drawn from the soil for thousands of years add to the scenic splendor of this unique national park.Lake Manyara National ParkLake Manyara National Park's closest town is Karatu, located about 200km west of Moshi. This 325km2 park is located below the massive escarpment of the Great Rift Valley and consists of five distinct vegetation zones hosting a large range of flora. The park is famous for its tree-climbing lions that laze on the branches of acacia trees during the day. Lake Manyara is home to over 350 species of birds, the most abundant of which being the flamingo; during certain seasons, flamingoes cover the surface of Lake Manyara with a pink blanket for kilometers. Finally, the national park is home to great numbers of buffalo, elephant, giraffe, hippo, impala and baboons.Ngorongoro National ParkThe Ngorongoro Crater, at 2286 meters above sea level, is the largest, unbroken caldera in the world. Surrounded by steep walls rising 610 meters from the crater floor, this natural amphitheater has a total area of 259km2. In drier times, thousands of animals descend the crater wall to drink from the lakes at the crater floor. It is not rare to get a rhinocerous, zebra, hippo, buffalo and impala all in the same picture. Ngorongoro Crater is located about 250km west of Moshi.

Oldupai GorgeThe great wildlife sanctuaries of Ngorongoro and the Serengeti lies Oldupai Gorge. The 'cradle of mankind,' as this stone-age site is popularly known, is where the skull of zinjathropus bisei was unearthed by Professor Louis Leakey in 1959; archaeological work continues there today. To the north of the gorge is Oldonyo Lengai, a living volcano. Around these sites of man's origin teem millions of wild animals. Elephant, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, gazelle, rhino, cheetah, hyenas and the black-maned lions can be observed at close quarters in their natural habitats. More than a hundred species of birds not found in the Serengeti have been spotted at Oldupai Gorge.Serengeti National ParkSerengeti National Park is undoubtedly the most well known wildlife sanctuary in the world, unequaled in its natural beauty and scientific value. Within its boundaries are more than 3 million large mammals living in undisturbed freedom on the 'endless plains,' as 'Serengeti' means in the Maasai language. About 35 species of plain animals can be observed, including the 'big five': elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo. Large herds of wildebeest, gazelle and zebra begin their spectacular migration from the central plains to the permanent water in the northwest of the park around the beginning of June.
