Tanzania Travel Highlights
Serengeti National Park – the Endless Plains
Famous for the Great Migration and wide open savannah grasslands teeming with wildlife. The Serengeti Plains roll on in a seemingly endless sea of iconic African landscapes. The oldest and most popular national park in Tanzania, the Serengeti Park is a world heritage site. The annual Wildebeest Migration is one of the most awesome wildlife spectacles on earth, consisting of hundreds of thousands to millions of stampeding wildebeest, zebra, Thomson’s gazelle and other antelopes, in turn attracting an array of predators!
Ngorongoro Crater – the Garden of Eden
This extinct volcano is home to the highest density of wild animals found in one area in Africa. The largest unflooded Caldera in the world, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is one of the top places for sighting predators, especially lions.
Zanzibar Islands – the Spice Islands
An idyllic beach paradise where Arabic and African influences meet to create a fascinating cultural and historic journey. Zanzibar offers some of the world’s finest scuba diving and snorkelling sites along the shores of its tropical islands.
Tarangire National Park – less touristy wildlife gem
Tarangire is best known for its huge elephant population and tree climbing lions, as well as being home to a huge variety of birds. Tarangire Park is scattered with baobab trees and termite mounds, adding to its unique landscape. Tarangire is said to host one of the world’s highest concentrations of elephants per square kilometer. Tarangire is also inhabited by Tanzania’s second highest concentration of wildlife during the dry months.
Lake Manyara National Park – the loveliest Lake in Africa
This national park includes diverse habitats supporting incredibly varied wildlife. Known for the huge falmingo flocks and other birds attracted to shallow Lake Manyara, along with tree climbing lions and numerous other wild animals.
Southern Tanzanian Safari Circuit
The southern safari circuit of Tanzania includes the Mikumi National Park, Ruaha National Park, Selous Game Reserve and the Udzungwa Mountains National Park.
Mikumi National Park is the closest national park to Dar es Salaam, covering 3230 km² of open savannahs resembling the Serengeti Plains. Mikumi is home to over 400 bird species, predators including leopards and lions, and populations of elephants, giraffes buffaloes, zebras, greater Kudu and wildebeest, as well as antelopes.
Ruaha National Park, a relatively wild and less explored wilderness area, is Tanzania’s second largest National Park. The park is set within a transitional zone between southern and east African flora and fauna species incorporating a unique variety of animals, birds and vegetation. Ruaha is known for its large elephant and buffalo herds and is home to an abundance of lion, leopard and cheetah.
The remote and less touristy Selous Reserve is considered the largest game reserve in Africa, and is home to one of the greatest concentrations of big game in the world. This untamed wilderness area is a World Heritage Site, hosting one of Africa’s largest populations of endangered African Wild Dogs, as well as critically endangered black rhinos.
The Udzungwa Mountains National Park is not a conventional game viewing destination, but it is a World Biodiversity Hotspot, hosting numerous endemic plant and animal species. This pristine and unique park covers a mountainous region of rich rainforests, and is exceptionally scenic. The Udzungwa Mountains are sometimes called the Galapagos Islands of Africa, given the high biodiversity and species endemism.
