Interesting Facts about Ngorongoro CraterThe Ngorongoro Crater is the remnant of the explosion of a huge volcano, which happened two to three million years ago. Being as high as 1,800 meters (5,900 feet) above sea level, this area can be hot in the day with cold highland nights. With its 264 square kilometer (102 square mile) expanse of the Crater floor nested between the steep 610-meter- (2,000-foot)-tall sides of the Crater, it is a must-see destination. Ngorongoro Crater lies in the Crater Highlands of North Tanzania. It is part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and is one of the Seven Wonders of Africa. In 1951, in great part thanks to the efforts of Michael and Bernard Grzimek, the Ngorongoro Crater was declared a National Park. The zebra-striped airplane they used to undertake aerial surveys and animal census was a common site over the Crater and neighboring highlands at the time. One of these flights ended in tragedy, when the twenty-five-year-old Michael Grzimek died in a crash. His father Bernard wrote the famous book "Serengeti shall not die" which we strongly recommend to all those travelling in the North of Tanzania.

Lake Manyara National Park stretches in Tanzania’s rainforest at the foot of The Great Rift Valley. Not only has the park attracted predators; it also has become home for huge colonies of pink flamingos whose number amazes even experienced travelers. The thick pink spot along the shore reflected from the water surface seems to raise manyfold their already huge population.
Serengeti National Park
Serengeti National Park, which is rightfully deemed a World Heritage Site, is the one place where one can witness the Great Migration, when Wildebeest and Zebra in their hundreds of thousands follow the yearly rain patterns in search of green pastures. This takes place against the backdrop of the pristine “endless plains of Africa", spanning 15 thousand square kilometers. This Park offers something for visitors of all ages. Adults can not help but be struck by the surrealism of the multitude of herbivores, followed by lions, cheetah and hyenas, moving with the single mindedness of the struggle for survival. The younger children will, in turn, be thrilled to experience the place that inspired the makers of “The Lion King”. And, of course, all those familiar with National Geographic and the Animal Planet channel will readily recognise the Serengeti National Park of Tanzania as the place where many of their documentaries were filmed.
Tarangire National Park
The name derives from Tarangire River that cuts through the park supplying all plant- and animal life with water. One of the largest colonies of baobab-centenarians can be found in Tarangire National Park. When the dry season comes to Tanzania, herbivores migrate to the river seeking salvation from drought. The herds of wildebeest, zebra and buffalo hovering at the edges of dried-up riverbeds attract lions and leopards. And they all await elephants who dig holes in the riverbeds to get at ground water.
Arusha National Park
While leaving your game drive vehicle outside of campsites and lodges may be forbidden in most national parks in Tanzania, Arusha National Park offers Guided Walks with an armed ranger. Experiencing the African montane forest with its plethora of game- and bird-life on foot is an experience well worth having. The walk first meanders among small bushes, runs through a cozy valley and ends by the Ulyulyusya waterfall which cuts through a mountain range.
We know that there are many places in the world with extreme habitat which sometimes look quite harmless and friendly, but it is hardly possible to say something similar about Lake Natron. Trying to describe it in lively colors, soon only such epithets come to mind as an alien, bloody and lifeless, that is partly true. But as they say, all depends on the perspective. Conversely, for someone this place gives a chance of survival.
Lake Eyasi is a picturesque creation of the Great Rift Valley. The lakeshore is a home for Hadza and Datooga tribes, absolutely different from each other. Hadza people were nomads in the past, they were living by hunting and gathering and little by little they had settled in this region. Their skill of survival in a wild world is extremely high and, of course, the ability of archery exceeds all expectations. In their turn, Datooga people, in contrast, always occupied with the cattle-breeding and land farming. They were drove to Lake Eyasi by other tribes who had better weapons and numerical preponderance. Being far away from the developing world, Hadza and Datooga people left in a wild state and could retain their way of life. And now, due to this fact, we can plunge in the atmosphere of the primal African life and even go hunting with tribes.
