Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is a natural amphitheatre created about 2 million years ago when the cone of a volcano collapsed into itself, leaving a 100 sq. mile cauldron-like cavity.

Game viewing vehicles descend the steep crater wall every morning and spend the day on grass plains that are teeming with animals. Predators such as lion, spotted hyena, jackal ...

Lake Manyara Highlight

Lake Manyara N.P.

Stretching for 50km along the base of the rusty-gold 600-metre high Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara is a scenic park, with a setting extolled by Ernest Hemingway as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”. Despite the fact Lake Manyara National Park is only 330 square kilometers in area, of which about 230 square kilometers are lake, it contains a large variety of habitats: the rift wall, the ground water forest, acacia woodland, areas of open grassland, the lake shore, swamp, and the ...

In the 19th century Mzizima (Swahili for "healthy town") was a coastal fishing village on the periphery of Indian Ocean trade routes. In the late 1900’s Sultan Majid bin Said of Zanzibar began building a new city very close to Mzizima. He named it from an Arabic phrase bandar as-salam meaning harbour of Peace.

Ruaha N.P.

Ruaha was recently expanded to become one of the largest national park in Tanzania (followed by the Serengeti) and also one its best kept secrets, partly due to its remote location in the heart of South Tanzania.
