Lake Manyara National ParkThe terrain is so diverse that its mammal and bird lists are some of the most impressive in Tanzania. The park is bordered to the west by the dramatic western escarpment of the Rift Valley and to the east by the Lake which spreads out in a shimmering heat haze backed by a narrow band of forest and the sheer red and brown cliffs of the escarpment. The park is home to an abundance of wildlife. Monkey, jackal, mongoose, hyena, zebra, hippo, warthog, buffalo, Masai giraffe, waterbuck, impala and elephant have all been spotted here.
Ngorongoro Conservation AreaOne of the wonders of the world, this area was declared a World Heritage Site in 1978. Explore its mountains, drifting sand dunes and diverse wildlife and be humbled by the Maasai people. Discover people living in harmony with wildlife without causing harm to one another. It is culture and ecotourism smoothly cultivated in the same environment. The area is home to dormant and active volcanoes, soaring mountains, archaeological treasures, rolling plains, rivers, forests, lakes and shifting sand dunes.
Selous Game ReserveThe Selous is one of the last remaining pristine true wilderness areas in the world where Tanzania's greatest population of elephants wander in an area bigger than Switzerland! The Selous (pronounced “Seloo”) is a World Heritage Site named after Frederick Courtney Selous – conservationist, hunter, explorer and author, whose adventure books on Africa became best sellers in Victorian England. The park varies from rolling grassy woodlands and plains, to rocky outcrops cut by the Rufiji River – whose tributaries form a network of lakes, lagoons and channels. Elephant, hippo, wild dog, cape buffalo and crocodile can be found in larger numbers than in any other African game reserve or national park.
SerengetiWith over 3 million large animals involved in seasonal migration, the Serengeti has the greatest unmatched concentration of wildlife in the world. Whilst the annual migration is the Serengeti’s most famous attraction, the park is also renowned for its lion, cheetah, zebra, giraffe, eland, impala, klipspringer and hippo. The Serengeti, whose Maasai name ‘Siringet’ translates as ‘the endless plains’, offers unparalleled ornithological opportunities and an unrivalled natural arena where the glory and harmony of nature can be appreciated as nowhere else on Earth.
