-- Embarking on a Tanzania safari holiday is something that can provide you with the thrill of a lifetime. No matter what location you decide to explore, the options in both game viewing and accommodations are something to behold.
A small park whose landscape differs from other Tanzania safaris is Lake Manyara National Park. This location is especially known for it's tree climbing lions. The lake itself covers about three quarters of the area, but it is due to this that you will find many animals grazing here, attracting big game as a source of food. The park is also known for it's baboons, but because of it's landscape which makes for an excellent grazing ground, elephants, wildebeest, buffalo, giraffe and hippo will also be found here. Due to the terrain they may not be as easy to spot as these other creatures, but there is a good population of leopards here as well. Flamingos and the long-crested Eagle are just two of the over 300 species of birds you can expect to see here as well. There are several camps and lodges located in and around the area to make this Tanzania safari experience one you will not soon forget.
In northern Tanzania you will find the Kilimanjaro National Park. The lush green plains and snow covered cap of Mount Kilimanjaro make this a place where you will want to bring your camera. Melting glaciers that run down the mountain, green vegetation, and tropical forests can all be found before getting to the rocky, icy, desert-like landscape. Before embarking on your trek up this mountain, be sure to get clearance from your doctor before taking part in this Tanzania safari experience. On your way up the mountain you will be able to scout elephants, buffaloes, and many different species of rare birds. December to February and July to October are the best times of year to explore Kilimanjaro National Park, and there are a number of excellent accommodations available here as well.
Other points of interest for a Tanzania safari include the Serengeti, Ruaha National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Selous Game Reserve, Zanzibar, Saadani National Reserve, and Tarangire National Park. Whatever destination you choose, your Tanzania safari will be something that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Chances are after you experience one of these places, you won't want to miss out on exploring more of them.
