Tanzania is a country that is rich in natural wonders, traditions, and cultures. This country is home to a range of diverse landscapes including sweeping plains, tropical rain forests, mountains, lakes, and beautiful beaches. Tanzania is the ideal destination for any type of visitor whether their interest is game viewing on safari, climbing Africa’s highest peak, or relaxing on the exotic beaches of Zanzibar, Tanzania has it all.

An unparalleled one-quarter of Tanzania’s surface area has been set aside for conservation purposes. With areas like Serengeti National Park and the famous Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania is the best safari destination in Africa. Furthermore, Tanzania is one of Africa’s most peaceful and stable countries which makes the country an ideal choice for both first-time visitors and old-timers.

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire is one of Tanzania's largest national parks and sanctuary for an unusually large elephant population. Majestic baobab trees are an interesting feature of the park. Animals concentrate along the Tarangire River which provides the only permanent water supply in the area. There is a great diversity of wildlife including lion, leopard, cheetah and up to six thousand elephants.

Often overshadowed by Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire National Park has immense concentrations of game in the peak months (July - February) and a fraction of the visitors that go to any of the other northern parks. The game viewing is superb and the atmosphere, as well as habitat, is completely different from the other parks. In addition, this park is surprisingly large, giving visitors more space and a more intimate game viewing environment of all the parks in the region.

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti is Tanzania's most popular national park - a world heritage site and one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Africa. The Serengeti is famed for its annual migration when hundreds of thousands of zebra and Thomson’s gazelle join more than 1 million wildebeest on their trek for fresh grazing. Yet, even when the migration is quiet, Serengeti National Park offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa teeming with wildlife including great herds of buffalo, groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala, and Grant’s gazelle as well as a vast population of birds.

The spectacle of predator versus prey dominates Tanzania’s greatest park boasting the largest lion population in Africa. Lion pride feasts on the abundance of plain grazers while solitary leopards haunt the acacia trees lining Seronera River and a high density of cheetahs prowl the South Eastern plains. This place is home to millions of wildebeest during the migration and over the huge flat plains. Furthermore, you are likely to find lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, and many other small predators.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area (Ngorongoro Crater)

Ngorongoro Crater is unique in that almost all the wildlife lives within the crater walls. Hence, you have the opportunity to find the game easily. Rhino, in particular, can be seen regularly as well as prides of lion and other predators like cheetahs.Ngorongoro Crater is the best place in Tanzania to see the “Big Five” due to the shape and size of this incredible natural landscape. This crater is the world’s largest inactive volcano caldera and its beauty is awe-inspiring.

A healthy population of black rhino and some of the largest tusker elephants left in Africa today are highlights. Moreover, Ngorongoro Crater becomes home to strong populations of lions, leopards, and hyenas along with good herds of non-migrating wildebeests, buffalos, and zebras. Other games at Ngorongoro Crater include serval cats, cheetahs, jackals, Grant's and Thompson's gazelles, flamingos, and bat-eared foxes along with approximately 400 species of birds.
