Serengeti National ParkSerengeti
The vast Serengeti plains, also known as Masaailand, encloses a diverse ecosystem covering riverine forests, swamps, grasslands and forests. It is the site of the famous overland migration of the wildebeest. The wildebeests and zebra migrate to the Maasai Mara territory in Kenya in search of water and forage every October. The two million strong herd returns in April, losing over 250,000 of its kin to fatigue, injury and predators during this journey covering 500 miles.

Besides the wildebeests, 70 other varieties of animals and 500 varieties of birds traverse this ecosystem which includes gazelles, zebras, lions, leopards and buffaloes. An ideal way to explore the wilderness here is on an hour-long trip over the bush land in a hot air balloon!
 
Ngorongoro Conservation AreaNgorongoro Conservation Area
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty and abundance of wildlife. The area is comprised of the Ngorongoro Crater, the Olduvai Gorge, the Empakai Crater and the Oldonyo Lengai Mountain and is situated some 118 miles west of Arusha, between Lake Manyara and Serengeti National Park. Covering approximately 3,200 square miles, the area is a pioneering experiment in multi-purpose land use where the diverse interests of wild animals, plants and people are being integrated. Wild animals are protected in the national parks however the craters of Ngorongoro and Empakai are reserved exclusively for wildlife. The rest of the Conservation Area is shared by wildlife, people and livestock.

There are 25,000 larger animals within the crater itself, mostly Zebra and Wildebeest however this area is undoubtedly the best place to see black rhino while on safari as well as prides of lion that include the magnificent black-maned males. Additionally, there are many of the famous Ngorongoro flamingos along with a variety of other birds around the soda lake. Other game found inside the crater include leopards, cheetah, hyena, elephants, warthog, impala, eland, impala, birds as well as other smaller mammals.
 
Arush National ParkArusha National Park
The closest national park to Arusha town is Arusha National Park. Arusha National Park is also known as Ngurudoto Crater National Park until 1967, Arusha National Park covers an area of about 137 square kilometers. It is located on the slopes of Mt. Meru, which looms over nearby Arusha town, and has a spectacular view of its big neighbour Mt Kilimanjaro. The park and town derive their name from the Waarusha people who live in this area. The Ngurudoto Crater, Momela Lake, the highlands mountains forest, and the rugged Mt. Meru (about 4.575meters above sea level) are the distinctive features of the park. Colobus monkeys, vervet monkeys, bushbucks, buffaloes, red forest duikers, hippos, elephants, and giraffes are found here .Birdlife, especially waterfowl are abundant as well.

One can find animals like Zebras, Black and White Colobus Monkeys, Baboons, Elephants, Giraffes, Buffalos, Hippos, Leopards, Hyneas, Waterbucks, Warthogs and a wide variety of Antelope species. The park is famous for its 400 amazing species of Birdlife including the Red Shark, Hammerkop, Spurwinged Goose, Herons, Grey Parrot and Woodpecker.
 
Mt. Kilimanjaro National ParkMt. Kilimanjaro
Mt. Kilimanjaro, one of the world's most accessible high summits and Africa's highest peak stands at an imperious 5,895 meters or 19,341 feet. It is also the world's highest free standing, snow covered equatorial mountain which continues to attract hikers and climbers from all over the world to try and summit its peaks.The lower levels contain cultivated farmlands and as you climb higher, you reach lush rainforest, alpine meadows, and finally across a barren lunar like landscape. The lower rainforest is home to many animals including buffaloes, leopards, and monkeys and elands are occasionally seen. A trek up Kilimanjaro lures hundreds of trekkers a year, in part because its impossible to walk to the summit without ropes or technical climbing experience. Yet, the climb is a serious undertaking and only worth doing with the right preparation. In addition to reaching the summit, there are also plenty of excellent options for exploring the mountain's lower slopes and learning about the Maasai tribe.
 
Lake Manyara National ParkLake Manyara National Park
Lake Manyara is one of Tanzania’s smallest and most diverse national parks and is bordered by the dramatic Western Escarpment of the Great Rift Valley. The park is notable for its abundant birdlife, diverse vegetation, tree-climbing lions, and hippos among others. Manyara offers a virtual microcosm of the Tanzanian safari experience. Its ground water forests, bush plains, baobab strewn cliffs, and algae-streaked hot springs offer incredible ecological variety in a small area, rich in wildlife and incredible numbers of birds. Manyara provides the perfect introduction to Tanzania’s birdlife. More than 400 species have been recorded, and even a first-time visitor to Africa might reasonably expect to observe 100 of these in one day. Highlights include thousands of pink-hued flamingos on their perpetual migration, as well as other large water birds such as pelicans, cormorants and storks. Even reluctant bird-watchers will find something to watch and marvel at within the national park.

Lake Manyara’s famous legendary tree-climbing lions are another reason to visit this park. The only kind of their species in the world, they make the ancient mahogany and elegant acacias their home during the rainy season, and are a well-known but rather rare feature of the northern park. In addition to the lions, the national park is also home to the largest concentration of baboons anywhere in the world — a fact that makes for interesting game viewing of large families of the primates.
 
Tarangire National ParkTarangire National Park
Tarangire National Park is located roughly 75 miles southwest of Arusha National Park and is second only to The Ngorongoro Crater in its concentration of wildlife during the dry season. With the highest population density of elephants anywhere in Tanzania, its sparse vegetation, it is strewn with baobab and acacia trees which makes it a beautiful and special location. Tarangire National Park has an area of 1,560 sq miles.

Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. Outside of the Serengeti ecosystem, the animals of Tarangire consist of the greatest concentration of wildlife. It is a smorgasbord for predators – and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared Oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed.
 
Saadani National ParkSaadani National Park
Saadani National Park is where the beach meets the bush and is the only wildlife sanctuary in East Africa to boast an Indian Ocean beachfront. It possesses all the attributes that make Tanzania's tropical coastline and islands so popular, yet it is also a place where those idle hours of sunbathing might be interrupted by an elephant strolling past or a lion coming to drink at the nearby watering hole.

Palm trees sway in a cooling ocean breeze with white sand an blue water sparkling beneath the tropical sun here. Traditional dhows sail slowly past, propelled by billowing white sails while Swahili fisherman cast their nets below a brilliant red sunrise.

A surprisingly wide range of grazers and primates can be seen on game drives and walks throughout the park. Giraffe, Buffalo, Elephants, Lions, Hyena, Warthog, Waterbuck, Reedbuck, Hartebeest, Wildebeest, Red Duiker, Kudu, Eland, Sable Antelope, Yellow Baboons and Vervet Monkeys are some of the parks most notable of the animals wandering the parks area. Herds of up to 30 elephants are encountered with increasing frequency and several lion prides are known to be in the area. Also roaming the park are leopards, and black backed jackals.
 
ZanzibarZanzibar Island
Zanzibar Island, also referred to as the spice island is part of the United Republic of Tanzania and lies on the Indian Ocean. The island is a place of great history and the signs of its long past have not been changed by the appearance of five-star hotels and world class tourist resorts. Inhabited for millennia by local African people who found fertile refuge here from the invasions of other cultures, it is a magnificent place to visit.

The island is without a doubt the number one beach location in East Africa and an absolutely wonderful island of tropical white-sand beaches, lush plantations, and an incredible history with fascinating culture. Despite the increasing numbers of visitors that are attracted to its beautiful landscape, the island remains resolutely African
 
Pemba IslandPemba Island
Pemba Island lies approximately 80km northeast of Zanzibar Island and is about the same distance from the Tanzanian mainland, situated directly east of the port of Tanga. Where Zanzibar is a low-lying coral atoll with broad sandy beaches, Pemba is a true island with very fertile hilly terrain and amazing deepwater drop offs for diving. Despite it's proximity to the mainland, the island really is off the beaten track and gets less than 1% of its neighboring islands' traffic. With an incredibly authentic Swahili Coast experience, Pemba is renowned for its voodoo and traditional healers as well as its rich history and traditions.

The coral reefs surrounding the island protect a multitude of marine species and offer some of the best diving in the world. While much of the coast is lined with mangroves, there are a few amazing stretches of shoreline and enough attractive offshore islands with pure, clean beaches and interesting bird life to keep any visitor busy for quite a while.
 
Selous Game ReserveSelous Game Reserve
Covering 45,000km of pristine wilderness with grassy plains, open woodland, forests and mountains, the Selous Game Reserve is Africa's largest game reserve. The reserve covers more than 5% of Tanzania's total area, is about three times the size of South Africa's Kruger National Park and twice the size of Serengeti National Park. It is home to roaming elephant populations, the area's famous wild dogs and some of the last black rhino left in the region as well.

Due to its remote location and because it is most easily accessed only by small aircraft, the Selous Game Reserve has remained one of the untouched gems of Tanzania's national parks and game reserves. It offers visitors a chance to see a wild and expansive Africa far from the populated roads and gift shops. Travelers usually flock to the north of the reserve while large portions of the south are still reserved for hunting. The Rufiji River Delta is a striking feature of the game reserve as well, connecting the Great Ruaha River with the Rufiji River and empting out into the Indian Ocean along the Tanzanian Coast.
 
Ruaha Game ReserveRuaha Game Reserve
Ruaha is one of Tanzania's best kept secrets. Because of its inaccessibility, the park has remained unchanged for centuries and offers the type of wild safari that early explorers were privy to. Bordered on the east by the Great Ruaha River and the west by the Mzombe River, visitors are struck with the beauty and vast expanse of wilderness. The river contains swirling rapids and deep pools inhabited by crocodiles and hippos. The terrain of the reserve varies with wild fig trees, rare baobab forests and gorges of orange sandstone.

Ruaha is a permanent hunting ground for lions, hyenas, wild dogs and jackals who prey on zebras and numerous antelopes. Kudu, sable antelope and the stunning roan are also found in this reserve as well as thousands of elephants and buffalo. This new and undisturbed reserve holds the second largest elephant population in Tanzania and also its largest elephant sanctuary among the national parks. Inhabiting the river are large amounts of crocodiles, hippos, turtles and fish as well.
 
Mafia IslandMafia Island
Mafia Island, Tanzania, lies off the mouth of the Rufiji River in Southern Tanzania. It is one of the least developed parts of an undeveloped country, yet it has been, and continues to be, part of important historical processes. The island's spectacular marine life is becoming increasingly well known since the setting up of the Mafia Island Marine Park which has brought more attention and infrastructure to the island. Mafia has a great deal to offer as an unspoiled, little-visited alternative to other Indian Ocean locations around Zanzibar and along the coast. However, as with Pemba, Mafia has better diving than Zanzibar, but the beaches are known to be better elsewhere. Mafia is the one island off Tanzania's coast that really encourages visitors to explore its offshore islands and sand bars.

The island is ideal for active people including divers, sailors and walkers looking for something different and unusual.
 
Gombe StreamGombe Stream
Gombe Stream National Park is situated beside Lake Tanganyika in Western Tanzania and is the smallest park in Tanzania with an area of only 52 square kilometers. It is a fragile strip of chimpanzee habitat straddling the steep slopes and river valleys that hem in the sandy northern shore of Lake Tanganyika. Its chimpanzees are habituated to human visitors and were made famous by the pioneering work of the late Jane Goodall. Located within the Rift Valley, the park is one of Africa's last havens for chimpanzees. Apart from the Mahale Mountains, south of Kigoma, there is nowhere else in the country where chimpanzees can be observed in the wild.

Other primates found in the park are baboons, red colobus monkeys, blue monkeys, bushbucks, buffalo, leopards as well as other mammals. In addition, the parks 200 odd bird species range from the iconic fish eagle to the jewel like Peter's twinspots that hop tamely around the visitors centre.
 
Dar-es-SalaamDar-es-Salaam
Dar es Salaam is a hustling, bustling seaport on the coast of Tanzania accessing one of the most important sea routes on earth. To most travelers though, the city is just a convenient port of call on the way to the more exotic Zanzibar, Pemba or Mafia islands, Tanzania's national parks, or as a business destination. Of its cities, Dar-es-Salaam is the largest, and Tanzania’s commercial capital. While in the city, you can tour the St. Joseph's Cathedral, the White Father's Mission House, the Botanical Gardens, and the historic State House besides the waterfront and the city centre. A few km north at the Bongoyo Island Marine Reserve you can take up snorkeling and diving.
