Besides the amazing wildlife in Kogatende another very positive feature is that there are very few lodges and camps here so all the viewing can happen with few others around.
Lake Manyara National park is a very good all-year park. It is a small park bordered almost on all sides; it is hard for animals to move out (although it's not like they want to move out with all the water and food there). So, for a guaranteed good wildlife experience visit this park any time of the year.
The Ngorongoro Crater is also good year-round. It does get very dry during some seasons but the wildlife is always plentiful. Peak seasons (December - January and July - August) can be very busy with other tourists.
Tarangire National Park is amazing during the dry season. This long river valley is the only source of water for animals from July till mid November and massive herds can be found in the park. Especially elephants since the population in this park is massive.
We take guests on a 3 to 5 day walking safari to the very remote southern part of this park. An unique experience.
