8 Days Kenya Tanzania Safari: Overview of national parks / game reserves you will visit during this 7 nights Nakuru, Maasai Mara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro crater private safari.
Safari to Lake Nakuru National Park Kenya.
The first park you will visit during this 8 days Lake Nakuru wildlife viewing safari.
Lake Nakuru is best known for its thousands, sometimes millions, of flamingos nesting along the shores. The surface of the shallow lake is often hardly recognizable due to the continually shifting mass of pink.
Also of interest is an area around the lake fenced off as a sanctuary to protect Rothschild giraffes, black rhinos and white rhinos.
Among the predators are lion, cheetah and leopard, the latter being seen much more frequently in recent times. The park also has large sized pythons that inhabit the dense woodlands, and can often be seen crossing the roads or dangling from trees.
As well as flamingos, there are myriad other bird species that inhabit the lake and the area surrounding it, such as African fish eagle, goliath heron, hamerkop, pied kingfisher and verreaux eagle. The first day of your 7 nights Kenya Tanzania wildlife safari will start here.

The second park you will visit during this 7 nights Maasai Mara wildlife safari in Kenya.
Maasai Mara is globally famous for its exceptional population of lions, leopards and cheetahs, game, and the annual migration of zebra, Thomson's gazelle, and wildebeest to and from the Serengeti every year from July to October, known as the Great Migration.
Masai Mara Game Reserve is ranked amongst the world's finest wildlife sanctuary with well over 450 species of animals having been sighted in this marvel of nature.
The endless plains of the Maasai Mara are the setting for the world's greatest wildlife spectacle - over 1.5 million animals, including the wildebeest and zebra migration.
They are in turn relentlessly tracked by Africa's great predators, including lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas and wild dogs, making for some of the most amazing hunting scenarios witnessed in the wild.

Safari to Serengeti National Park Tanzania.
The third park you will visit during this 8 days private Serengeti wildlife safari in Tanzania
The Serengeti National Park hosts the largest terrestrial mammal migration in the world, which is one of the ten natural wonders of the world.
The Serengeti is also renowned for its large lion population and is one of the best places to observe prides in their natural environment.
Each year around the same time the circular great wildebeest migration begins in the Ngorongoro area of the southern Serengeti of Tanzania. A natural phenomenon determined by the availability of grazing. It is January to March when the calving season begins.
Some 250,000 wildebeest die during the journey from Tanzania to Maasai Mara Reserve in lower Kenya, a total of 800 kilometres (500 miles). Death is usually from thirst, hunger, exhaustion, or from the numerous predators on their trail.

Safari to Ngorongoro Crater National Park Tanzania.
The fourth park you will visit during this 7 nights luxury Ngorongoro Crater private wildlife safari.
The Ngorongoro area originally was part of the Serengeti National Park and, to the northwest, adjoins the Serengeti National Park.
The annual Great Migration passes through Ngorongoro, with millions of wildebeest and zebra moving south into the area in December and then moving north in June.
Large animals in the crater include the black rhinoceros and the hippopotamus. There also are wildebeest, the zebra, the eland, and Grant's and Thompson's gazelles.
The crater has one of the densest known population of lions while on the crater rim you will find numerous leopards, elephants, mountain reedbuck and buffalo. A large lake in the middle of the crater is inhabited by hundreds of flamingoes, and from a distance, they appear as a pink border of the lake.
