Getting Up Close and Personal with Nature
Going on a Tanzania safari can make for truly exciting and memorable holidays in Zanzibar. The country offers tourists an opportunity to explore the wild and discover the many wonders of nature through its different natural parks and safaris. A safari adventure gives visitors the chance to observe wild animals right in front of their eyes. It is also an opportunity to get closer to nature through fun activities such as kayaking, fishing, rafting, and mountain climbing.
Serengeti National Park
One of Tanzania’s most famous safaris is the Serengeti National Park. This national park is located in the Serengeti ecosystem, in the Mara and Simiyu regions. Home to almost two million wild beasts, the park is famous for its annual migration of over 1.5 million white bearded wildebeest, 250,000 zebra, and numerous Nile crocodile. Covering 5,700 square kilometres of grass plains, savannah, riverine forest, and woodlands, the United Nations lists the park as a World Heritage Site.
For Animal Lovers
Serengeti National Park lets visitors play hide and seek with Serengeti’s Big Five, a group of animals composed of the African elephant, lion, Cape buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros. These animals are the “big five” according to big-game hunters, as they are the five most difficult animals to hunt in the wild. With over 3,000 lions, Serengeti Park is said to have the largest population of lions in Africa. It also has over a thousand leopards, and a large number of black rhinoceros. The African elephant and buffalo can still be seen going around the park.
The park is also home to many other species such as the cheetah, Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelle, topi, eland, waterbuck, hyena, baboon, impala, African wild dog, and giraffe. You can also have fun with Serengeti’s 500 bird species including the ostrich, secretary bird, Kori bustard, crowned crane, marabou stork, martial eagle, lovebirds, and many kinds of vultures.
