The Serengeti National Park is the world’s last great wildlife refuge as it contains an estimated three million large animals, most of which take part in a seasonal migration (each year this huge herd of wildebeest together with over 200,000 zebra and gazelle migrate in a clockwise direction around the Serengeti, up to the Masai Mara in Kenya and then back down to the Serengeti to have their young around 8000 wildebeest are born a day, between mid Feb and mid March).

We spend our holiday in Tanzania. We are a family with three children 11,10 and 6 years old.. I asked to Black rhino a special tour for everybody with appropriate travel for children.. We were so lucky finding black rhino because they organized for us everything.. Special guide, perfect help-guide, comfortable car and PERFECT ORGANIZATION. We went in tarangire, lake Manyara, lake Eyasy Serengeti Ngorongoro and Arusha National park. We spent less then MANY other travel-company in Europe and everybody was so kind with us in any situation..

Tarangire, Lake Maniara, Lake Eyasi, Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Lake Natron
This tour is one of the most complete tours of the northern part of Tanzania attractions. We had a private guide and we stayed in very nice lodges. We had the opportunity to see the big five and other spectacular animals. The outlooks are wonderful, various and colored. The nature is very different from a park to another, from thick forests to wild savannah. Big lakes, outstanding volcanos, incredible villages and people, everything in Tanzania is a new spectacular discovery.
What a wonderful tour! Great time with Black Rhino Tours!
