NATIONAL PARKS

Tanzania is truly a safari destination without peer. An unparalleled one-quarter of its surface area has been set a side for conservation purpose , with the world renowned Serengeti National Park and incomprehensibly vast Selous Game Reserve heading a rich mosaic of protected areas that collectively harbor an estimated 20 percent of Africa’s large mammal population.

And yet there is a more to Tanzania that just safaris. There is mount Kilimanjaro and Meru, respectively the highest and firth-highest peaks on the continent.

Gombe Stream and Mahale Mountains National Parks vie with each other as the best place in the world to track wild chimpanzees.

SERENGETI

Serengeti is the Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, also a World heritage site and recently proclaimed a World wider wonder, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when six million hooves pound the open plains , as more that 200,000 zebra and 300,00 gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quite , the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillation game-viewing in Africa.

KITULO

Locals refer to the Kitulo Plateau as Bustani ya Mungu-The Garden of God- while botanists have dubbed it the Serengeti of Flowers,” one the great floral spectacles of the world.” And Tanzania’s newest national parks is indeed a rare botanical marvel, home to full 350 species of vascular plants , including 45 varieties of terrestrial orchid, which erupt into a riotous wildflower display of breathtaking scale and diversity during the main rainy season of late November to April.

TARANGIRE

Herds of up to 300 elephant scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra , buffalo, impala , gazelle , hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It’s the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem , smorgasbord for predators and the one place in Tanzania where dry-county antelope such as the stately fringe-eared oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed.

MIKUMI

The park is about the norther border of Africa’s biggest game reserve-sealous and is transected by the surfaced road between the most accessible part of a 75000 square kilometers (47,000 square mile) tract of wilderness that stretches east almost as far as the Indian Ocean.

The open horizons and abundant wildlife of the Mkata Floodplain, the popular centro-piece of Mikumi.

ARUSHA NATION PARK

Arusha National Park Located closet to Arusha and Kilimanjaro. A day trip can be arranged for those who do not have time for a safari, for example after Kilimanjaro. You can see buffalo, elephants, giraffes and antelopes, but not the large concentrations. A nature near the city, but it’s just a taste of safari. It is one of the smallest parks in Tanzania, but is very attractive and topographically varied. It consists of: Ngurdoto Crater, the Momela Lakes and Mt. Meru.

RUAHA

The game viewing starts the moment the planet touches down. A giraffe races beside the airstrip, all legs and neck , yet oddly elegant in its awkwardness. A line of zebras parades across the runway in the giraffe’s wake. In the distance, beneath a bulbous baobab tree, a few representatives of Ruaha’s 10,000 elephants , the largest population of any East African national park. Ruaha has the largest population of greater Kudu, the park emblem, distinguished by the male’s magnificent corkscrew horns..
