Tanzania and Kenya is one of Africa's original safari destinations and its 'northern circuit' remains its most famous. The Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara masai mara and Tarangire national parks are renowned for fantastic scenery and great game, whilst the Serengeti is famed for its vast open plains and astounding density of predators.
For those on a tight budget, consider a comfortable lodge safari. You'll stay at large hotel-style accommodations that might lack the personal touch, but that typically have prime locations and spectacular views.
