Here are our Top 4 Safari Destinations in Tanzania
The Serengeti National Park is home to what is widely regarded as the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth – the great annual migration of zebra and wildebeest.
The migration sees over 1.4 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra and gazelle travel over 1,800 miles each year- a truly spectacular sight.
The Serengeti is also home to other amazing wildlife including lions, cheetah, elephants, giraffe, and a great range of exotic birds. This makes a Serengeti Safari one of the very options for wildlife photography holidays and birding holidays inTanzania andAfrica as a whole.
The Ngorongoro conservation area in northern Tanzania is home to an incredible variety of wildlife species only found inEast Africa, including the critically endangered black rhino.
The Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest intact caldera and shelters some of the densest population of wildlife in the world.
With so much wildlife to see in such a small area, Ngorongoro safaris are an amazing way to see some ofAfrica’s most incredible wildlife up-close.
Lake Manyara boasts opportunities to view some of Africa’s most impressive mammals including lion, leopard, giraffe and elephant; however, the lake is probably most famed for playing host to more than 400 species of birds, making it an amazing destination for photographic safaris and Tanzania birding holidays.
The Tarangire National Park, like Lake Manyara, is a much smaller area than the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro conservation area. As a result visitors often prefer to combine their visits to Tarangire and Manyara with other national parks or as part of Tanzania safari and beach holidays.
In spite of its size Tarangire offers an amazing opportunity to see some of Africa’s most amazing wildlife. Tangire safaris are particularly impressive during the dry season between June and October when the drying river beds play host to an amazing variety of wildlife.
