Tarangire National Park
The wildlife of North Tanzania
Tarangire National Park is famous for elephants. The gentle giants of the savannah can be seen cooling in the shade of ancient baobabs or wading in swampy areas, usually in family groups, with an elephant calf or two hiding in its mother’s thick legs.
The park is also home to large carnivores: lions and cheetahs may be spotted lazing in the shade, a leopard spied high in a tree, and hyenas slinking through the tall grass. Here you will also find giraffes, zebras, Thomson's gazelles, mongooses and even rare gerenuks for a full wildlife experience.

Interesting Facts about Tarangire National ParkFrom July to October, the dry season, Tarangire National Park is teeming with animals as wildlife, including large elephant herds, do not stray far from the river bed. Elephants need between 100 and 300 litres of water a day to survive and the holes they dig in the sands of the river are the only source for hundreds of miles of kilometres around. These holes attract other animals, who drink the water after the elephants have had their fill. If all the herbivores are in Tarangire, the great lions and leopards will soon follow to get their dinner, as well. Tarangire National Park also provides great opportunities for birdwatching: being the nesting grounds for a large number of bird species. The largest flying bird in the world, the Kori Bustard is often spotted here. Hornbills, the yellow-collared Lovebird as also endemic to the area. There are options for night safaris and short walking safaris for travellers who wish to spend a few days in Tarangire National Park.

Safari in Other National Parks
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.
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 unmatched experience.
The ancient Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the most interesting parks of Tanzania. A safari tour of the Ngorongoro National Park is your chance to see the greatest number of wildlife species per square kilometer. The Crater – set amidst the tropical forests of the Great Rift Valley highlands – is the crown jewel of Tanzania’s National Parks. The tour, beginning at the Crater rim with its breathtaking views of the Crater floor and carrying on to the game drive in the Crater itself with its plains, acacia woodlands and lakes teeming with bird- and wildlife, shall leave you with a sense of wonder to be cherished for the rest of your life!
Travelers looking for an off-the-beaten-path adventure, something a bit more rugged, should consider visiting Lake Natron. This remote location encourages travelers to experience nature away from the safari vehicle. Perhaps get a bit wet on a waterfall hike or some dirt on their hands while climbing an active volcano.
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.
