Tanzania is the location of three out of the seven of the top natural wonders in Africa, it has been revealed.
Dr Philip Imler, president and founder of the New Seven Wonders, based in Texas, US, revealed the list in Arusha on Monday. He said although the seven locations were not placed in rankings, Tanzania's Serengeti National Park stood out above the rest because it offered travellers the chance to witness the wildebeest migration - the largest regular movement of large mammals.
The other entries from Tanzania were the wildlife-rich Ngorongoro Crater and Africa's highest mountain Mount Kilimanjaro. Africa's Seven Wonders of Nature were selected from a shortlist of 12 entries
Mizengo Pinda, Prime Minister of Tanzania, said it was vital all three of these natural wonders were conserved and guarded for future generations as well as all the nation's wildlife and natural resources.
The most popular of the three Tanzania attractions among visitors is the Ngorongoro Crater, which is the destination for 500,000 tourists each year. Every year 350,000 travellers head to the Serengeti National Park to get close to its wildlife, while those in search of spectacular views opt for Mount Kilimanjaro, which attracts 55,000 annual visitors.
