THE SPECIAL WILDLIFE PARKS OF TANZANIA
Celebrate Our Astonishing Variety of Wildlife
Did you now that three of the 7 Natural Wonders of Africa call Tanzania home?
They include: Mount Kilimanjaro, Ngorongoro Crater & Serengeti Migration
A Tanzania safari. The land, the parks, the wildlife. Welcome to our limitless world of wonder.
Whether you’re exploring the savannah amongst millions of wildebeests, trekking by monkeys and antelope in the rainforest, or descending into an otherworldly volcanic crater humming with every sort of wildlife, Tanzania’s parks and game reserves can fill a special need to connect with our natural world.
A World of Surprises
Where but Tanzania can you find parks alive with literally thousands of lions, or elephants? Where else can you walk amongst the largest population of giraffes in the world?
Here you can scale the planet’s highest free-standing mountain, go on a canoe safari, delight in the company of infinite heavenly pink flamingoes, and be astounded by tree-climbing lions.
The sights, sounds, colors, and movements of Tanzania’s stalking, prowling, swinging, flying, and racing wildlife will touch something deep within you. Our parks are not only a refuge for every manner of wildlife but quite often a revitalizing haven for our safari-goers as well.
Witness the Millions
A visit to the great Serengeti National Park will bring you up close to endless herds of wildebeests and zebra. During the calving season in February and March, the sprawling plains are alive with tens of thousands of newly born calves.
And just a few months later in June, you’ll see the great herds transform into the largest movement of animals on the planet – The Great Migration – in search of water and taller grasses on which to survive.
But never far off are the big cats of the Serengeti, over 3,000 lions alone. The savannah here hums with the vast populations of predators and grazers, playing out the ancient rhythms of survival.
Towering Into the Sky
You can see its mighty flanks reaching into the clouds for a hundred miles.
It stands as a beacon of Africa’s grandeur and all its possibilities, for each year thousands trek up to tackle its incredible heights.
Mt. Kilimanjaro is the continent’s tallest peak and the largest free-standing mountain in the world. We’ll help you conquer its slopes on this exhilarating once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
An Unexpected Gem
So unusual in so many ways – the alkaline lake of Lake Manyara National Park takes up most of the reserve. And upon this lovely body of water is perched a sprawling pink canvas of flamingoes, drawn to the lake’s algae.
Another unexpected oddity of the park is its famous tree-climbing lions. You may find yourself staring up at the overhead branches of an acacia tree to find a sleeping lion resting peacefully above.
Lightly-Touristed But Fascinating
The town of Arusha is the portal to your northern Tanzania safari but not far off you’ll also find a wonderfully diverse smaller reserve, Arusha National Park. Known for its intact volcano, Mt. Meru, the park will delight with a variety of surprises.
Arusha’s seven algae lakes provide a refreshing palate of greens on which you can take a canoe safari, likely seeing giraffes – there are more here than at any other spot on the planet. Plus, this compact park provides opportunities to trek through rainforests, alpine moorlands, and even a miniature Serengeti.
If you like elephants (and who doesn’t?), come to Tarangire National Park, where the big tuskers number over 3,000. Plus over 700 lions, wildebeests, buffalo, and zebra. The only species the park lacks are tourists! You’ll see more wildlife than human life in this overlooked reserve.
