Tanzania is the ideal destination for anyone looking to experience the safari adventure of a lifetime. From the vast Serengeti plains abundant with wildlife to the majestic snow-capped peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania offers something worthwhile for every traveler.
The Serengeti National Park, with its vast plains spanning 1.5 million hectares, is home to an incredible annual migration of two million wildebeests, along with hundreds of thousands of gazelles and zebras. What makes this spectacle even more impressive is that it is followed closely by predators in search of food and water. The park's biodiversity is exceptionally high, with four globally threatened or endangered animal species: black rhinoceros, elephant, wild dog, and cheetah.
The (809,440 ha) area encompasses vast highland plains, savanna, savanna woodlands, and forests, stretching from the Serengeti National Park in the northwest to the eastern arm of the Great Rift Valley. It was designated as a multiple land use area in 1959, allowing wildlife to coexist with the semi-nomadic Maasai pastoralists who practice traditional livestock grazing. This extraordinary region includes notable features such as the breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater, the largest caldera in the world, and the remarkable Olduvai Gorge, an impressive 14km long ravine.
In Tarangire National Park, you will have the incredible opportunity to encounter a wide range of animals. This park is renowned for its large elephant population, boasting herds of up to 300 individuals per herd, making it one of the largest elephant populations in Africa. Additionally, you will find abundant impalas, elands, buffaloes, giraffes, Bohor reedbuck, Coke's hartebeest, Thompson's gazelles, greater and lesser kudu, and occasionally, rare sightings of the unique gerenuk and fringe-eared Oryx. It is believed that a few black rhinos still inhabit this park.
Lake Manyara National Park, located in the northern part of Tanzania, is centered around its namesake alkaline lake, which serves as a vital habitat for a diverse range of bird species. From November to April, the scenic shores of the lake attract thousands of greater and lesser pink flamingos, along with pink-backed pelicans, yellow-billed storks, grey herons, and hippo pods.
Mto Wa Mbu, known as a melting pot of cultures, is a unique village in Tanzania where representatives from all 120 tribes live harmoniously side by side. Despite its name translating to "Mosquito River," we were fortunate to find that the village had fewer mosquitoes due to its reliable water source. Your guide, who is a native of the village, will provide you with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to see the community through their eyes. The duration of the tours is typically around 5 hours, but they can be flexible to accommodate your preferences.
The Hadzabe, a fascinating tribe with a population estimated to be under 2,000 individuals, are among the few remaining groups who have held onto their rich tribal heritage. Living far from the influence of tourism and globalization, they have managed to preserve their way of life throughout the years. Nestled near Lake Eyasi, the Hadzabe people reside in caves, which together with their dwindling numbers, have helped them avoid the spread of diseases like HIV that often result from intertribal marriages.
Lake Natron, situated not far from Lake Manyara in northern Tanzania, is a fascinating salt or soda lake. Located in the Gregory Rift, which is the eastern branch of the East African Rift, the lake lies at the base of the Ol Doinyo Lengai, an active volcano. Its shallow depth, measuring less than three meters, and variable width, dependent on the water level, make Lake Natron quite unique. Stretching 57 kilometers in length and 22 kilometers in width, the area experiences irregular seasonal rainfall, primarily occurring between December and May. The temperature at the lake often exceeds 40 °C.
Accompanied by our knowledgeable guides, you will have the opportunity to explore the stunning Rift Valley, picturesque rice fields, and even visit the picturesque Lake Manyara. Immerse yourself in the local Tanzanian culture by enjoying authentic Tanzanian cuisine at the "Mama Africa House." Additionally, we will take you to the hidden gems of this unique area that are off the beaten path.
