Tanzania is one of the African countries that offer its rich culture, unique history, and undemanding way of living. Apart from this, the country would transport travelers onto a new world of wildlife sightings and exploration.
If you want to experience and discover the country’s real and exotic beauty, here are the 3 main wildlife attractions that should be in your top list when visiting Tanzania.
Mt. Kilimanjaro National Park
Mt. Kilimanjaro National Park is the most sought after wildlife attraction in Tanzania. As the highest mountain in Africa, it is wowed by many travelers due to its fantastic view and summit area. It has the almost perfect ecosystem as it has cultivated lands, rain forest, heath, moorland, alpine desert, and a northern summit.
Would you believe that you would not find any wildlife animal in the mountain? Although it’s famous for hikers, the mountain is not a good place for wildlife species. Instead, you can find them on the mountain forest beneath it. You can expect the sightings of the Big Five (lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo, and rhinoceros) in the area along with other species of birds.
Serengeti National Park
Serengeti National Park is known for being one of the oldest ecosystems. It houses a variety of wildlife species. You can also see different flora and fauna species that cannot be seen in other national parks.
Annual migration events of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles are one of the reasons why tourists visit Serengeti on their bucket lists. Big Five can be also spotted in the park. With the high number of wildlife species, the government of Tanzania and Kenya work together to conserve the exotic and charming beauty of Serengeti.
Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Ngorongoro Conservation Area features the world’s largest and inactive caldera – the Ngorongoro crater. It also has vast plains, forests, and savanna that is an excellent place for wildlife species to live.
Many travelers who visited the area described it as a picture-perfect landscape area where they can see and discover diversified species of animals and fauna. It is also dubbed as Africa’s Garden Eden as it shares the same characteristics with our known Garden of Eden.
