Serengeti National Park
Serengeti is the Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park , also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a WORLD WIDE WONDER, the Serengeti is famed for it’s annual migration to the Maasai Mara of Kenya from mid July to mid November yearly.
These are the perfect time for mating. Maasai Mara in conducive for mating and also a lot of grass. A million wildebees.
Each one driven by the same ancient rhythm fulfilling its instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life: a frenzied three week bout of territorial conquest and mating; survival of the fittest as 40 Km (25 miles) columns plunge through crocodile invested waters on the annual exodus north; replenishing the species in a brief population explosion that produces 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 Km (600miles) pilgrimage begins again.
Lake Manyara National Park
Lake Manyara National Park offers a wilderness experience in diverse habitats, from its Rift Valley soda lake to dense woodlands and steep mountainsides. Apart from a spectacular setting, the park is famous for its unusual tree-climbing lions and the vast elephant herds it was established to protect.
The shores of the lake, encrusted with pink flamingo, attract more than 400 species of birds, many of them waterfowl or migrants. Large herds of buffalo, cheetah, Masai giraffe and impala roam the lake shores and the forested valley slopes.
A Lake Manyara safari is a fascinating experience, as the park also features a ground-water forest, acacia tortilis woodland and hot springs called Maji Moto. Troops of several hundred olive baboon appear alongside Sykes monkey and short-eared galago. Cape clawless otter, Egyptian mongoose, hippo and klipspringer are other park residents.
The Ngorongoro Crater in Northern Tanzania, once a gigantic volcano, is the largest intact caldera in the world. Some maintain that before it erupted, it would have been higher than Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa.
Today, long since having collapsed and eroded, it is an extensive highland area with the famous 600 m deep Ngorongoro Crater as its focal point. Nearly three million years old, the ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth.
