Location

Arusha National Park

In spite of its proximity to Arusha town, Arusha National Park is little visited, despite offering the opportunity to explore a beguiling diversity of habitats within a few hours. Dominating the park is the volcanic Mount Meru, Tanzania’s second highest mountain. The national park and its fringing forest reserve encloses much of the mountain, including 3.5-kilometer wide Meru Crater on the summit and the entire eastern slope.

Lake Manyara National Park

Set against the impressive 600-meter high backdrop of the Great Rift Valley’s western escarpment, Lake Manyara National Park, which covers the lake’s northwestern corner, is a rare flash of green in an otherwise unremittingly dry land. The compact game-viewing circuit through Manyara offers a virtual microcosm of the Tanzanian safari experience.

Mount Kilimanjaro National Park

Kilimanjaro National Park covers the entire mountain above the tree line, together with six forest corridors running down to around 2000-meter Mount Kilimanjaro. Not only is this the highest peak on the African continent, it is also the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, rising in breathtaking isolation from the surrounding coastal scrubland - elevation around 900 meters.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Ngorongoro Conservation Area occupies the volcanic highlands between The Great Rift Valley and the Serengeti Plains. It is the product of the volcanic upheavals that accompanied the formation of the Rift Valley, and its varied habitats virtually guarantee sightings of the big five - elephant, lion, leopard, rhino, and buffalo. The Ngorongoro Crater is also called “The Eighth Natural Wonder of the World.”

Serengeti National Park

As one of the world’s most famous wildlife areas, the Serengeti needs little introduction. Bordering Ngorongoro in the east, Kenya’s Maasai Mara Game Reserve in the north reaching to within eight kilometers of Lake Victoria in the west, the Serengeti is also Tanzania’s largest national park, as well as the oldest and most popular national park, and a world heritage site.

Tarangire National Park

Occupying almost 4,000 square kilometers of pure Rift Valley wilderness southeast of Lake Manyara, Tarangire comprises Tarangire National Park and the adjacent Tarangire Conservation Area. Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, as well as the crowding migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest, and eland.
