The Northern Circuit

Africa's Finest Game Experience

The Northern Circuit offers the most unique and exiting perspective of both nature and wildlife in East Africa - a must-see for any traveler wishing to explore the region. These five parks truly represent some of the finest destinations Tanzania has to offer.

Of the 16 protected national parks in Tanzania, the five which comprise the Northern Circuit are the most globally recognized due to their abundance of wildlife and close proximity to both Arusha and each other. Serengeti National Park, the northern-most park, is claimed to have been the main inspiration for the 1994 critically-acclaimed blockbuster "The Lion King".

The five parks are Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire, Manyara and Arusha National Park. Each park brings something unique to the table that is likely to appeal to all types of travelers - from the adventurous cat lovers to the astute bird specialists, and everyone in between.
