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. Tarangire is a beautiful area stretching south-east of Lake Manyara around the Tarangire River. Ngorongoro Crater is one of the world's greatest natural spectacles; its magical setting and abundant wildlife never fail to enthrall visitors. It borders the Serengeti National Park to the north and west.
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. Arusha National Park, although one of Tanzania’s smallest parks, is one of its most beautiful and topographically varied. Animal life in the park is abundant. You can be fairly certain of sighting zebras, giraffes, waterbucks, reedbucks, klipspringers, gooses, dik- diks, warthogs, baboons, and vervet and colobus monkeys, although there is dense vegetation in some areas.
