Tanzania Attraction destination

Serengeti National Park
Siringitu: the place where the land moves on forever.
Serengeti National Park, a vast and beautiful expanse of 14,763 square kilometers, is perhaps the world’s most famous wildlife sanctuary. A World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve, the Serengeti supports the largest concentration of plains game in the world. In addition to watching the incredible procession of almost two million wildebeest and zebra that takes place each year from December to August, many people visit the Serengeti to search for big cats.
The park draws 90,000 visitors annually, all hoping to view the long files of wildebeest and the predators that stalk them. Given the important biological value of the park, several conservation and research efforts are underway in the Serengeti. The Tanzania National Park Association and the Frankfurt Zoological Society manage the park jointly.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Often called the seven wonder of the world, Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken caldera in the world, and is one of the only places in Africa you can view every member of the "big five" (rhinoceros, lion, cheetah, leopard and elephant) on a single game drive. Unique to Ngorongoro, indigenous tribes are permitted to live in the conservation area and local Maasai graze their livestock on the crater floor in harmony with nearby herds of buffalo and wildebeest. Walking is permitted in Ngorongoro Conservation Area but not on the Crater floor.

 

 

 

Tarangire National Parkelephant at Tarangire national park
Tarangire National Park is famous for its giant baobab trees as well as the thousands of elephants and giraffes feeding along the banks of the Tarangire River. It is home to large lion prides and boasts around 500 bird species. Tarangire has the largest termite mounds in Tanzania, some of which reach up to fifteen feet in height. Many of Tarangire's animals migrate out of the park during the wet season; thus Tarangire's best game viewing is during the dry months of July through November when wildlife congregates around the Tarangire River. Bush walks and night drives are permitted from some camps in Tarangire.

 

 

 

Lake Manyara National Park & Karatuflamingo at Manyara National Park
Lake Manyara National Park lies 130 kilometers outside of Arusha town and encompasses Lake Manyara and its surroundings. There are five different vegetation zones including groundwater forest, acacia woodland, open areas of short grass, swamps and the lake's alkaline flats. The park's wildlife includes more than 350 species of birds, baboon, warthog, giraffe, hippopotamus, elephant and buffalo. If lucky, catch a glimpse of Manyara's famous tree-climbing lions. Night game drives are permitted in Lake Manyara.

Karatu is a picturesque farming town that lies just outside Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Many upscale hotels have opened in Karatu over the last few years, making it an easy launching point for safaris to Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater.

 

Arusha National Parkblack and white colubus monkey at Arusha national park
The oft-overlooked Arusha National Park offers some of the most breathtaking scenery in Northern Tanzania. Arusha National Park includes Mount Meru, and game highlights include giraffe, cape buffalo, elephant, zebra, flamingo and hippo. Several primate species including black and white colobus monkey, Syke's monkey and vervet monkey thrive in the tropical forests.
