Overview On Parks & Reserves In Tanzania

ngorongorocraterlodgesmall3The Tanzanian National Parks Authority (TANAPA) has varied gazetted national parks which, with surrounding game reserves, concessions and aquatic reserves, covers a quarter of a country, which would take a lifetime to explore every nook of it. But you can select a customized or recommended Tanzanian safari with AfricanMecca visiting the places that particularly appeal to you. How can you choose between the national parks and game reserves that contains a fifth of all the large mammals in Africa? Travel in northern Tanzania takes you from Rubondo Island on Lake Victoria, a water bird and fish breeding sanctuary, through the Serengeti, past Ngorongoro’s vast Crater, and Tarangire to Lake Manyara, all teeming with big game. The annual Great Migration of Wildebeest by the millions traverses much of this corridor, across never ending grassland, fording crocodile infested rivers and falling prey to big cats. Amongst beautiful soda lakes and volcanic highlands, Mount Meru in Arusha is the place to acclimatize yourself to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest free-standing mountain on earth. Gombe is a smaller, fragile version of Mahale, both remote western havens for wild chimpanzees on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, and a research base for the Jane Goodall Center. Ruaha, wild and demanding to access, neighbors Mikumi and the immense Selous Game Reserve crossed by the majestic Rufiji River with its oxbow lakes, where you can boat and walk, with Katavi, even wilder and more remote, in the west. Saadani is a coastal park in the east, for barefoot beach and bush African vacations. Udzungwa Mountains in the eastern arc are forest zones known as the African Galapagos, containing 30 threatened endemic birds, whilst Kitulo is a paradise for botanists, known as the Garden of God.
