Location

Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti is 14,763 square kilometers, which to give some perspective, is larger than Ohio, Belgium or Wales. The Serengeti National Park, or Serengeti Park, or just Serengeti, was founded because the area was used for hunting lions and this led to a vast depopulation of the animals. The British colonial administration in Tanzania created a partial game reserve of around 3.2 square kilometers (800 acres) in 1921 and made it a full game reserve in 1929. This was the foundation of what will one day become known as the Serengeti National Park, which was officially established in 1951. In 1981 it was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, while the migration is lauded as one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

The Serengeti National Park is where safari goers come to truly experience an African safari, the park is featured on many National Geographic shows, the park is rich with wildlife, endless plains and sunrises and sunsets that make the heart go wild. The park is known for its huge wildlife populations. White-bearded wildebeest, zebras and gazelle migrate annually during the great migration from the plains of the Serengeti in Tanzania to the grasslands of the Maasai Mara in Kenya in search of fresh grass and water.

Of all the unforgettable places you can visit in Africa, the Serengeti has that certain something. It’s impossible to forget the Serengeti. The wide open plains where wildebeest and zebra are so often seen, the unbelievably stunning sunsets, and the annual migration are all sights to behold while visiting here.

Ngorongoro Crater & Olduvai Gorge

Ngorongoro Crater is the main highlight of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania. Considered to be the 8th natural wonder of the world, the Ngorongoro Crater is a geological phenomenon of unparallel proportions. A UNESCO World Heritage site since 1979 and one of Africa’s greatest conservation areas, the flat, open plain within the immense caldera of an extinct volcano contains a population of approximately 25,000 large animals including the highest density of mammalian predators in Africa, which live permanently in the crater.

The crater formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed on itself some two to three million years ago, creating a nature enclosure measuring is 610 m deep and a floor which covers an expansive 260 km. Within this crater lies every type of ecosystem, including ravine forests, open plains, freshwater and alkaline lakes which attract a number of wildlife and Africa’s Big Five which can be seen on a Tanzania safari.

Olduvai Gorge known as the cradle of mankind, it is one of the most prominent paleoanthropologist sites in the world. Some of the findings here have shaped our understanding of early human evolution. At Laetoli, west of the Ngorongoro Crater, are humanoid footprints, preserved in the volcanic rock. They are thought to be over 3.6 million years old and represent the earliest signs of mankind so far that has been found in the world.

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is a national park in Tanzania's Manyara Region, it covers an area of approximately 2,850 square kilometers (1,100 square miles).. The name of the park originates from the Tarangire River that crosses the park. The Tarangire River is the primary source of fresh water for wild animals in the Tarangire Ecosystem during the annual dry season, during the dry season; thousands of animals migrate to the Tarangire National Park from Manyara.

One of the outstanding features of Tarangire is the vast number of enormous baobab trees. These giants also known as the upside-down tree are a strange and beautiful sight in themselves. The park is very famous for its massive number of Elephant, baobab trees and lions climbing trees.

This lake supports an expected 2.5 million birds as their only breeding ground. This spectacle is a sight to behold hundreds of thousands of fabulously pink head flamingos come to feed blue-green algae on the lake.
