Nearly 30 per cent of Tanzania is National Parks

Nearly 30 per cent of Tanzania is National Parks

TANZANIA boasts some of the best national parks in the world.

The Serengeti National Park is one of the most famous and best-loved parks, and is home to more than one million species of large mammals.

It’s also a World Heritage Site, and has also had the honour of being named a 7th world wonder.

The Serengeti is the site of the Great Migration, where wildebeest and zebras make their way across the plains in search of fresh grasslands. It’s also home to great buffalo herds, elephants, giraffe, leopard, impala, and gazelle, as well as the endangered Eastern Black Rhinoceros.

Tanzania also features the largest population of elephants; which can be found in the Selous Game Reserve. Ernest Hemingway wrote about the beauty of Mount Kilimanjaro, and this snow-capped, cone-shaped mountain is a site that will take your breath away as well.

Standing some 5,895 meters above sea level, this mountain is the tallest in Africa, and the highest freestanding mountain in the world.

It’s also home to almost every kind of ecological system there is, from cultivated land, to rainforest, alpine desert, and arctic summit. While this dormant volcano provides a breathtaking hike for those who are interested, you’re more than welcome to admire this mountain’s grandeur from the ground.

The Great Wildebeest Migration sees over 1.5 million wildebeest, as well as zebra, and gazelle, make their way through the grasslands of Tanzania and Kenya in search of pasture.

Undoubtedly, the most exciting part of the journey is the Mara River crossing, where massive herds make their way to the Masai Mara, braving crocodiles, and danger at every turn.
