Serengeti National Park
Tanzania’s oldest and most popular National park, also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a worldwide wonder. Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 Zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle join the wildebeest trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game –viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, Topi,Kongoni,Impala and Grant Gazelle
The spectacle of predator versus prey dominates Tanzania’s greatest park
Golden-manned lion prides feast on the abundance of plain grazers. Solitary Leopards haunt the acacia trees lining the Seronera River, while a high density of cheetahs prowls the southern eastern plains. Almost uniquely, all three African jackal species occur here, along the spotted hyena and a host of more elusive small predators ,ranging from the insectivorous aardwolf to the beautiful Serval cat.
Ngorongoro Crater and its wildlife
The jewel in Ngorongoro’s crown is a deep volcanic crater- the largest unflooded and unbroken caldera in the world- 19.2km in diameter ,610 meters deep and 304sq km in area. The rich pasture and permanent water of the Crater floor supports a large resident’s population of wildlife of up to 25,000- predominantly grazing- animals these include Wildebeest, Zebra Gazelle,Buffalo,bushbuck,reedbuck,waterbuck baboons .The steep inner slopes provide a habitat for dikdik.
Predatory animals- lions, leopards, and cheetah’s Serval, cats and larger packs of hyenas. The Crater is a dynamic and constantly changing ecosystem and the numbers and proportion of some animals has fluctuated considerably over the past 30 years
