Location

Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park is a superb example of what the Rift Valley has to offer. The park sits at the bottom of the 600 meters high escarpment, that is part of a tectonic crack that marks the entirety of East Africa, from Ethiopia to Malawi. With the soda lake itself running along its eastern edge, the park is a thin concentration of game and is the home to some of Africa’s most famous lions, that have learned how to climb trees for a little rest and relaxation.

Along with the good elephant and some of Africa’s smaller breeds of antelopes, such as the klipspringer and some of the best raptor populations on the eastern side of the continent, this is truly a worthwhile destination. In the very north, the park features some large and hard softwood forests, with towering figs and mahoganies, giving cool shade and cover for the game.

As you move down into the park, you will come across the lake itself and the marshland area that is a favorite of the cape buffalo and the wandering elephant. From here, the park becomes more desolate, with hardy olive trees and boulders that have rolled off from the escarpment above.

Serengeti National Park

The Masai word Serengeti means endless plains, which is a perfect description of this magnificent area of over 6000 square miles. Arguably the most famous destination for safaris in Africa, the vast, open plains of the Serengeti epitomize, are for many, what Africa is all about. In the Serengeti National Park, the grasslands are roamed by millions of wildebeests, zebras, and others, while being stalked by some of the continent’s fiercest predators, the mighty lion, the leopard, and the cheetah.

This stunning eco-system, part of the Serengeti grassland plains, has long been held as a must see destination, in part for the diversity and number of animals, but also for the uniqueness of this environment which, while often thought of as the norm in Africa, is actually quite rare.

Loosely speaking, the southern plains of the Serengeti, around the Ndutu Plains, and the northern plains of the Lamai Wedge and into the Masai Mara, Kenya, are the two main feeding grounds for the wildebeest herds and they oscillate between the two on a yearly basis. In between these two open plains, there is a series of small ravines, rivers, and bushes, or scrublands.

This area of the Serengeti National Park is a predators’ delight with plenty of places to lay in and wait for the unsuspecting calves as they begin their own safari, moving north and south.

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is probably the least visited of the northern Tanzanian game parks, and retains a real air of undiscovered Africa, particularly in the south of the park. It lies at a little distance from the south east of Lake Manyara and covers an area of approximately 2600 square kilometers. It is named after the Tarangire River that flows through the park.

Animals can be seen in the greatest concentrations during the dry season that runs from June to November. The normal plains and savannah animals are found here in great numbers, along with many resident species. A wildlife census during the wet season in 1980 indicated animal numbers at the following levels 32000 zebras, 30000 impalas, 25000 wildebeests, 6000 buffaloes, and 3000 elephants.

The Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest intact caldera (collapsed volcano). Over 30000 animals live within this enormous natural bowl, which is the most densely packed concentration of wildlife in Africa. Wildlife here offers some of the best game viewings in all the National Parks of Tanzania. It has a rich variety of birds and animals that make the area their home. Its varied habitats support between 30000 and 40000 animals a year.

In the crater, the Mandi and grog or swamps are areas of marshland, the legal forest is dominated by yellow barked acacia trees, and in the center, there is Lake Magadi, a soda lake, often visited by flocks of flamingos. The rainy season lasts from November through May, with the dry season running from June through October. June and July are the coldest months of the year. The rim of the crater is often shrouded in dense cloud.
