Growing numbers of visitors are choosing Tanzania for a holiday of a lifetime, combining a safari with a relaxing few days on the exotic beaches of Zanzibar, also known as ‘Spice Island’ located 25 miles off the mainland.
Lake Manyara: Famous for its large flocks of flamingos (seasonal), resident elephants, hippo, buffalo and tree-climbing lions.
Ngorongoro: This huge creator is considered to be one of the Wonders of the World and is home to rhino, elephant, lion and wildebeest.
Serengeti: The Serengeti covers over 6,000 square miles of open plains with the largest concentration of animals in the world. This amazing migration of 1.5 million wildebeest travel through the park twice a year. Depending on the rains from October to December they move south to the central plains and then gradually from February they travel north and west. By June or July they cross over into the Masai Mara before returning back to the Serengeti in October to restart their journey again.
Tarangire: A very pleasant park covering 1000 square miles with baobab trees. The resident animals in this reserve include eland, lesser kudu, oryx and many species of gazelles.
