The Natural Treasures of Tanzania
Bestowed with unmatched wildlife riches, Tanzania is a must-have piece in the collection of any traveller. Coupled with immersive, captivating scenic vistas, the diversity of wild animals and vegetation will mesmerize even the most ingrained globe-trotters. You will see the world in a condition that preceded the outset of our civilization. Startling panoramic views of the Tanzanian savannah will become your lifelong memories.
Some of the most amazing wildlife spectacles, featured in our Tanzania safari packages, include:
The Great Wildebeest Migration
The view of the biggest herd of the ungulates on the planet (more than a million of wildebeest, zebra and gazelles) galloping in search of new pasturelands is both mesmerizing and awe-inspiring. The unique wildlife spectacle under the blue sky occurs when the herds deplete their habitual grazing fields
The mightiest collective effort of the hoofed mammals on the planet is a popular spot for the teams of the National Geographic and the Animal Planet to capture this one-of-a-kind show directed by Nature. From a distant observation point, you will see a pulsing and breathing vivid giant, moving at high speed and raising clouds of dust.
Getting closer presents a multitude of impressive episodes of this saga - the Migration attracts hundreds of feline predators (lions, leopards and cheetahs), lurking around and looking for the weakest and the oldest. Stirring scenes occur when the wildebeests, zebras and gazelles cross the rivers - insidious, cold-blooded and watchful crocodiles are staging bloody ambushes. Breathtaking hunting dramas are played out.
The Great Migration season in Northern Tanzania is from July till September. The herds are crossing the main water artery of the National Parks, River Mara, a hideout of the bloodthirsty crocodiles, in June.
The Plains of Serengeti
Endless savannahs of Serengeti National Park amaze with its beauty and grandeur. Listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site, Serengeti is a must-visit place in Tanzania. With the largest number of mammals species collection, Serengeti unconditionally beats any other wildlife sanctuary of Africa. This is the best place to see the Big Five, as well as it is where the Great Migration starts and ends its annual odyssey. Majestic elephants, mighty rhinos, towering giraffes slender leopards, kingly lions and funny warthogs - this all about Serengeti. It is the vibes of Serengeti that inspired the Disney studio to immortalize its beauty in the ‘King Lion’ cartoon’.
The first contact with Serengeti sends a deceptive message that you are in the realm of tranquility and harmony. Going deeper in the park, you will witness the bloody hunting games between the feline predators and the herbivorous, where the cats are not always victorious - a powerful ‘circular defense formation’ of buffaloes has left many lions hungry and badly damaged.
Due to painstaking conservation efforts of the Tanzanian government and international activists, all types of human development activities in Serengeti are strictly forbidden. You will see Serengeti at its rawest and see the same scenic vistas, which inspired Hemingway to create his immortal works.
Oftentimes referred to as the ‘cradle of civilization’, another Tanzanian UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ngorongoro Conservation Area offers unparalleled encounters with the wildlife and cultural experiences.
The lost world inside the Crater
Ngorongoro Crater is the last memoir of the giant volcano, which eruption formed a colossal caldera. The wild animals inside are virtually ‘locked’ inside, but not by the walls of the crater - contrary to a popular misconception, the animals can freely walk inside and outside through many loopholes. The site has exceptionally favorable conditions for mammals - plenty of water and juicy grass are the reason why Ngorongoro Crater has an unbelievably high density of herbivorous animals, which, in their turn, attract the predators. Thousands of wild animals inhabit the crater, forging the reputation of Ngorongoro as a mecca for wildlife adventurers.
The cradle of humanity
The world-famous archeological site Olduvai Gorge is the place where the fossils of the first humans (homo habilis) to inhabit the planet have discovered by the team outstanding British paleontologist Louis and Mary Leakey.
The ongoing scientific research never stops there, and many treasures are awaiting their explorers. However, in contrast to other excavation sites, Ngorongoro is open to the general public. You may walk down the ravine and stand at the same place, where the first hominids stood many years ago. Informative and comprehensive lecture of the local guides will bring the new insights about the onset of our civilization.
Tanzania is a famous destination both among the professional ornithologists and amateur twitchers. With over a thousand of recorded bird species living in the protected areas, Tanzania safari tours is a paradise for the enthusiast - this is the best place to complete your list.
The birds here are everywhere - you may begin your expedition in the tropical forests of Kilimanjaro, then move to the Northern Circuit National parks, and nowhere your intimate contact with the feathered race will be the same.
Annual competition - Arusha Birding Day - is organized for the true aficionados.
Mighty Baobabs, Tree-Climbing Lions and other Surprises
Describing all wildlife attractions of Tanzania will produce a volume larger than a complete edition of Encyclopedia Britannica in size and magnitude.
For example, Tarangire National Park shelters one of the largest herds of elephants in the world. Roaming between the towering baobabs, the present quite a fantastic view for the wildlife photographers.
Tanzania parks also feature one-of-a-kind encounters with the tree-climbing lions - a unique sight nowhere else to be found.
