Virtually Explore Tanzania
In the vast plains of Serengeti National Park, comprising 1.5 million hectares of savannah, the annual migration of two million wildebeests plus hundreds of thousands of gazelles and zebras - followed by their predators in their annual migration in search of pasture and water – is one of the most impressive nature spectacles in the world. The biological diversity of the park is very high with at least four globally threatened or endangered animal species: black rhinoceros, elephant, wild dog, and cheetah.
Lake Manyara National Park is located in between Tarangire National Park and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, making it the ideal addition to any Northern Circuit safari. It is bordered to the west by a dramatic Rift Valley escarpment; and dominated in the wet season by the soda lake for which it is named. Although the park is relatively small with a total area of just 130 square miles, it’s one of Tanzania’s most underrated safari destinations. It boasts no fewer than 11 distinct ecosystems (from open savannah to dense evergreen forest) and one of the world’s highest densities of large mammals.
Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area are without doubt the most famous safari destinations in Tanzania. But if you travel a little further south, you’ll step off the beaten track and into the spectacular surrounds of Tarangire National Park. This lesser-known game reserve is often left off tourist itineraries in favour of its more famous neighbors; yet during the dry season, it has a greater concentration of wildlife per square kilometer than any other park in Tanzania. It takes its name from the Tarangire River, which is the area’s only source of permanent fresh water during the driest months. The park is defined by lush grasslands studded with ancient baobabs and sun-baked termite hills, and is a key staging ground of the annual Great Migration.
The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the top safari destinations in the world. A paradise for the wild animals because of the abundant year-round food and water supply and no need for migration. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a protected area surrounding the crater; it is listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Tanzania is an unforgettable destination. The land of the Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti and the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar, Tanzania offers adventure, excitement and splendor in all forms. With a young and growing population, Tanzania's new business blueprint is in line with the country's consolidated efforts to market itself as an investment hub within the African continent.
