Best Safari in Tanzania
To adventure on the Best Safari in Tanzania, means to see a variety of fauna. Tanzania contains approximately 20 percent of Africa’s large mammal population. They live on the reserves, in the conservation areas, in the marine parks, and in the national parks.
The Wildlife resources of Tanzania are described as “without parallel in Africa” and “the prime game viewing country”. The Serengeti National Park, the country’s second largest national park area at 14,763 square kilometers (5,700 sq mi), is located in northern Tanzania and is famous for its extensive migratory herds of wildebeests and zebra while also having the reputation as one of the great natural wonders of the world. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area, established in 1959, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and inhabited by the Maasai people. The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact caldera in the world.
The national parks are also part of the wetlands of Tanzania. The wild animals tend to live closer to the wetlands, particularly the water-loving species; such as the hippopotamus, waterbuck, common warthog, elephant, crocodile, and the sitatunga, as well as water birds such as flamingoes and ducks.
