Nighttime Safari

the Exotic African Fauna


Going on a safari is a truly enjoyable experience. From the famous Big Five (lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard) ) to fascinating bird species and unique insects, there's always something new to discover. Witnessing these animals in their natural habitat is an unforgettable adventure that will surely leave a lasting impression. Let's look at some of the extraordinary wildlife you might encounter during your African getaway.

The Big 5

It's hard not to hear about the Big Five when embarking on an African safari. The African elephant, Cape buffalo, lion, leopard, and rhinoceros are the most highly coveted animals to spot and observe. Interestingly enough, this term was not coined by conservationists or wildlife experts. Instead, early game hunters gave these animals their title because they posed the most challenging and dangerous hunts, making them the ultimate prize.

Despite the negative origins of the Big Five's name, today, they are celebrated for their beauty, importance to the ecosystem and overall magnificence.

The Great Migration

Experience one of the world's most breathtaking natural events, the great migration of wildebeest and zebra herds. Witness the awe-inspiring river crossings where the bravest wildebeest takes the leap, followed by hundreds more. Prepare to be amazed as you observe this phenomenon with your own eyes and ears. Head to TAASA for a perfect vantage point to witness the Northern Serengeti migration towards the Mara River.

Resident Wildlife

At TAASA Lodge in Tanzania, you can indulge in unparalleled game-viewing experiences throughout the year. Our resident wildlife species, including elephants, lions, giraffes, zebras, and many more, remain nearby, allowing you to witness their natural behaviors and interactions up close. Our wildlife is a constant presence, ensuring every visit to TAASA is a unique and unforgettable adventure.


This area is home to many different predatory animals. Year-round residents include the magnificent lions, the fast cheetahs, and the cunning hyenas. While you may see them during the day, going on a nighttime safari could improve your chances of catching a glimpse of rare genets and serval cats. You may even witness the impressive leopards that live here as they move stealthily through the bush in search of their next meal. Experience the excitement of getting up close to these fierce predators.

Plains Game

The Serengeti plains, a vast and legendary expanse of land, are widely recognized as a haven for a myriad of herd animals. Among these are the majestic elephant, the awe-inspiring giraffe, the muscular buffalo, the swift Thomson's gazelle, and the iconic wildebeest. Additionally, the plains are home to the critically endangered rhino, an animal whose existence is vital to the region's delicate ecological balance. The Serengeti is truly a sight to behold, and its inhabitants are a testament to the beauty and diversity of the natural world.


Tanzania is home to a remarkable array of bird species, offering avid bird watchers an unforgettable experience. With an astonishing 1,113 species of birds, including 800 resident and 300 migratory species, the country is a true paradise for bird enthusiasts. The lowland forest, acacia bush, and diverse rock formations make for ideal habitats for these feathered creatures, providing abundant food and shelter. From brightly-colored bee-eaters to majestic eagles, Tanzania's bird-watching opportunities are unparalleled.


Tanzania boasts a diverse and fascinating array of reptile species, such as chameleons, lizards, geckos, and turtles. Our knowledgeable and experienced guides will regale you with captivating stories and fascinating facts about these creatures, including the vibrant and strikingly beautiful Agama lizards. Join us for an unforgettable adventure and discover the wonders of Tanzania's reptiles on your African vacation.


From delicate butterflies to buzzing bees, Tanzania is home to a wide variety of insects. These tiny creatures play a vital role in the ecosystem, pollinating plants and decomposing organic matter. With such a diverse range of habitats, including grasslands, wetlands, and forests, Tanzania offers endless opportunities for insect enthusiasts to observe and learn about these fascinating creatures.
