The park is one of the most attentiveness of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem (a smorgasbord for predators) and has one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelopes such as the stately fringe-eared oryxes and peculiar long-necked gerenuks are regularly practiced. Also, this place is the only national park that holds the migrant during the dry season and home of different species of animal.

Note

As a general rule of the thumb, the level of sophistication and the number of options available depending on the lodge’s distance from suppliers. It has been said that “The more remote the lodge, the simpler the menu, and the closer it is to the city center or towns, the more sophisticated the menu.” This can be really be expected but this doesn’t mean you can underestimate the culinary powers of the safari lodge chefs. As a matter of fact, you can be surprised. People with special diets don’t have to worry as well.
