About Tanzania

Tanzania is an East African country known for its vast wilderness areas. They include the plains of Serengeti National Park, a safari mecca populated by the “big five” game (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino), and Kilimanjaro National Park, home to Africa’s highest mountain. Offshore lie the tropical islands of Zanzibar, with Arabic influences, and Mafia, with a marine park home to whale sharks and coral reefs. Also on the coast is the bustling capital, Dar es Salaam, where Swahili culture meets a modern African city. In the north, the archaeological site of Olduvai Gorge was inhabited by the first humans 2 million years ago. Olduvai is next to Ngorongoro Crater, a massive volcanic valley that’s major wildlife conservation and safari area, inhabited by the indigenous Maasai, who still pursue traditional tribal practices. Lake Tanganyika is the location of Jane Goodall’s primate research center, where visitors can track chimpanzees along the shoreline.
Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park, in northern Tanzania, is known for its massive annual migration of wildebeest and zebra and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Seeking new pasture, the herds move north from their breeding grounds in the grassy southern plains. Many cross the marshy western corridor’s crocodile-infested Grumeti River. Others veer northeast to the Lobo Hills, home to black eagles. Black rhinos inhabit the granite outcrops of the Moru Kopjes.
Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is in northern Tanzania. The area is named after Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera within the area. It is home to the vast, volcanic Ngorongoro Crater and big 5 game such as elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino. Huge herds of wildebeests and zebras traverse its plains during their annual migration. Livestock belonging to the semi-nomadic Maasai tribe graze alongside wild animals. Hominin fossils found in the Olduvai Gorge date back millions of years.
Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It has three volcanic cones Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira. It is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest single free-standing mountain in the world at 5,895 metres above sea level and about 4,900 metres above its plateau base.
Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is a national park in Tanzania's Manyara Region. The park is famous for its high density of elephants and baobab trees. Visitors to the park from June to November during the dry season can expect to see large herds of thousands of zebra, wildebeest, and cape buffalo. Home to more than 550 bird species, the park is a haven for bird enthusiasts and is also famous for the termite mounds that dot the landscape.
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.

Lake Victoria

Lake Victoria is one of the African Great Lakes. The lake was named after Queen Victoria by the explorer John Hanning Speke. In terms of volume, Lake Victoria is the world's ninth-largest continental lake. The lake includes many species of fish that inhabit nowhere else, especially cichlids. Invasive fish, such as the Nile perch, have driven many endemic species to extinction.

Lake Tanganyika and associated wetlands are home to Nile crocodiles including famous giant Gustave, Zambian hinged terrapins, serrated hinged terrapins, and pan hinged terrapins.
Lake Natron

Lake Natron is a salt or soda lake in Arusha Region in Tanzania. The lake is the only regular breeding area in East Africa for the 2.5 million lesser flamingoes, whose status of "near threatened" results from their dependence on this one location. The alkaline water in Lake Natron has a pH as high as 10.5 and the water's alkalinity comes from the sodium carbonate and other minerals that flow into the lake from the surrounding hills.
Mount Meru

Mount Meru is a dormant stratovolcano located 70 kilometers west of Mount Kilimanjaro in the country of Tanzania. It is the second-highest mountain in Tanzania, after Mount Kilimanjaro. The Momella route which starts at Momella gate, on the eastern side of the mountain is used to climb Mount Meru.
