Explore Tanzania's Natural Wonders

Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire are the national parks which are part of the Northern Tanzanian Safari circuit. All four are within easy reach of Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO).

Exquisite nature and wildlife abounds in each of these amazing parks.


From the wonder of the Great Migration in the Serengeti, to Ngorongoro Crater the world's largest intact caldera, to Lake Manyara, known for its tree climbing lions, and Tarangire which contains some of the largest elephant herds in Tanzania, there is beauty all around to explore.

Our Safaris

All of our safaris are private, personalized itineraries and can be as short as 2 days, or up to as long of time as you have.

Our vehicles are 4WD safari Land Cruisers with an open roof hatch for 360 degree sightseeing and photography. 

Depending on group size we use our short chassis or long chassis vehicle.

We have created four suggested safari itineraries which have been loved by previous clients. In addition to lodging while on safari, our itineraries also include a night in the hotel before and after your safari.

Contact Us with your safari preferences and the Local Moshi team will create your tailor made itinerary.

Planning your Safari

One important thing to consider when planning your safari will be the driving distances between parks.


Therefore our itineraries have been created to maximize your time on game drives instead of on the road.
