Our new tour explores the famous and quintessential birding and wildlife reserves of northern Tanzania, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. The tour will focus on Tanzanian endemics and regional specials whilst having ample time to marvel at some of the highest concentrations of wildlife to be found anywhere on our planet, and all this amidst spectacular scenery in one of Africa’s wildest, most stable and least spoilt destinations! Some of the many regional specials and endemic birds that will target on this tour are the beautiful Fischer’s and Yellow-collared Lovebirds, Ashy Starling, Grey-breasted Spurfowl and Rufous-tailed Weaver. With Mt. Kilimanjaro as a backdrop, we will search for the highly localized Beesley’s Lark, one the world’s rarest lark species with perhaps no more than 250 birds left! Our tour uses a superb standard of accommodation and comfortable safari vehicles with pop-up roof hatches to optimize viewing. This is an incredible and immensely rewarding birding safari is augmented by some of the most outstanding mammal viewing the world has to offer.
