Lake Manyara National Park is one of Tanzania’s smallest parks, its vegetation is diverse, ranging from savanna to marshes and acacia woodland, enabling it to support a variety of habitats. Serengeti, which cover 14 763sq km and is contiguous with the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya, is Tanzania’s largest and most famous national park. The Serengeti is famous for its lions, but you’re also likely to see Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles, elands, impalas, klipspringers, and warthogs, as well as rich birdlife.
One of the Serengeti’s main attractions is the annual migration of wildebeest herds in search of better grazing. The Ngorongoro Crater is just one part of much larger area of interrelated ecosystems consisting of the Crater Highlands (to which the Ngorongoro Crater belongs) together with vast stretches of plains, bush and woodland. The entire Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) covers about 8300sq km.
