Ruaha National Park

Ruaha National Park Ruaha National Park is the largest national park in Tanzania. The addition of the Usangu Game Reserve and other important wetlands to the park in 2008 increased its size too. Located in the heart of the country, Ruaha is the 'other park' on the Southern circuit. Ruaha's relative inaccessibility has resulted in a park that takes far fewer tourists than the Selous and far fewer than any park in the Northern circuit. The rewards of travelling this far are a wild landscape with baobab studded hills and rocky escarpments, playing host to excellent levels of game including superb predator concentrations, huge elephant and buffalo herds and a cross over of game from southern and Eastern Africa. Birdwatcher's can enjoy ove...

Katavi National Park

Katavi National Park Katavi National Park is located in a remote location offering unspoiled wilderness,it is also a third largest national park in Tanzania. Located Southwest Tanzania, east of Lake Tanganyika. A predominant feature in Katavi is the enormous flood plain, split by the Katuma River and several seasonal lakes. The lakes support enormous groups of hippos, crocodiles and over 400 species of birds. One of the spectacles in Katavi is the hippos at the end of the dry season when as many as 200 try to squeeze into a pool of water. The male rivalry heats up causing territorial fights. Isolated, untrammeled and seldom visited, Katavi is a true wilderness, providing the few intrepid souls who make it there with a thrilling taste of ...

Mahale Mountains National Park

Mahale Mountains National Park Mahale was the research base for a team of Japanese anthropologists for several decades. Despite the gorgeous clear waters of Lake Tanganyika and the obvious draw of the chimps themselves, Mahale was not an established tourist destination until about decade ago. It's still remote, but absolutely worth the trip. Mahale is located in the Western Tanzania to the South of Kigoma town, it is bordering Lake Tanganyika-the World’s longest, second deepest and least polluted freshwater lake-harbouring Besides the 1000 chimps, there are other primates to see too, including the red colobus and yellow baboons. You can take a kayak out on the lake, or spend hours walking through the forest spotting other smaller primate and ple...

Mt Kilimanjaro

Mt Kilimanjaro An almost perfectly shaped volcano rising sheer from Tanzania's northeastern plains, Mt Kilimanjaro is one of Africa's most magnificent sights. Snowcapped and not yet extinct, at 5896m (19343ft) it's the highest peak on the continent. The name of Kilimanjaro is as shrouded in mystery as the mist-enveloped summit. 'Mountain of Light' is one of the several possible translations, although many locals refer to the snowy peak as Kipoo or Kibo. Daunting as it looks, it's possible to scale the mountain without technical mountaineering skills - all you need is determination, warm clothing and a properly equipped guide. There's no doubt you'll go through the pain barrier on the way to the top, but the reward is unforgett...

Udzungwa National Park

Udzungwa National Park Udzungwa National Park, unlike most other national parks in Tanzania, is a high forest area and a place for walking. It is situated along the major fault line delimiting the eastern side of the Southern Highlands. The predominantly westerly winds here have to rise to higher and cooler levels with frequent rains as the result. The vegetation is therefore different from the usual woodlands; it consists of high and dense forest. It is very unusual in Africa to have continuous forest as here, from as low altitudes as about 200 m a.s.l. up to more than 2,000 m. with a gradual change of tree species composition. The Udzungwa forest is part of the so called Eastern Arc, which extends from the Southern Highlands through t...

Arusha National Park

Arusha National Park Lying between the peaks of Kilimanjaro and Meru, Arusha National Park is an outstandingly beautiful area. The Park has a wide range of habitats, from the string of crater lakes where many water birds can be watched, through the highland montane forest and on up to the imposing summit of Mt. Meru. The forests contain a wealth of birds and other animals, like the beautiful bushbuck easily glimpsed in the grades between the ancient cedar trees, or the black and white colobus monkeys climbing along their branches. The interesting geology of the area is reflected in the impressive view of the ash cone and cliff face leading to the summit of Mt. Meru. Everywhere throughout the Park there are chances to observe the n...

Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro Crater The Ngorongoro crater is one of the finest places in Tanzania for watching game. It's a must see and it should be on the top of your priority list. In fact, it's not really a crater it's a caldera, a collapsed volcano. The crater (we still call it a crater) has a diameter of 19km, it is about 600m deep. The bottom is flat, almost treeless and filled with some small creeks and lakes. Ngorongoro is thought to have formed about 2.5 million years ago from a large volcano whose cone collapsed inward after a major eruption, leaving the present vast, unbroken caldera as its landmark. The crater is loaded with game. Gazelles, zebra's, elephants, hyena's, buffalo's, hippos, lions and many many birds including ostric...

Mikumi National Park

Mikumi National Park A Day-Trip from Dar Es Salaam to Mikumi National Park. Around the back of the Dar Es Salaam airport we found a very smart-looking private charter company terminal and hangers, which contrasted strongly with the rest of the decrepit-looking airport. The operation was owned and run by a Canadian guy married to a Tanzanian. One of his 10-seater Cessnas took us on a 50-minute flight to Mikumi National Park about 150 miles inland to the west where we landed on a grass airstrip (Landing is Mainly Recommended during Dry Season) and immediately began a game drive. The park consists largely of flat, lightly timbered savannah and contains a good selection of game. We saw many impala, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, hippopotamus...

Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park About two-thirds of the park is covered by the alkaline lake. Mto Wa Mbu (Mosquito Creek) is a popular base for visiting the park. The village runs its own Cultural Tourism Program here that offers village walks, short bicycle tours and boating trips on the lake. Ask at Holiday Fog Resort or the Jambo campsite. Leopards, lions, elephants, blue monkeys, dik-dik, gazelle, hippo, giraffe, impala, and more inhabit the park and many can be seen throughout the year. There is a hippo pond at one end of the park where visitors can get out of their cars and observe from a safe distance. The leopards and lions are both known to lounge in the trees while not hunting for prey. Lake Manyara National Park is located 1...
