Tanzania is a Muslim country on the East side of Africa which boarders the Indian Ocean. Much of Tanzania remains undisturbed by technology or modern interventions. Your Tanzania holiday will bring you up close to African plants and animals.
One of the best known habitats is the Serengeti in northern Tanzania. This area consists of 12,000 miles of open space and animals. The Massai nations also inhabit this area. The Sarengeti consists of forest, woodland, grasslands and swamps. The Serengeti has the longest and largest migration of land animals in the world. The animals migrate twice a year, following the rain schedule of the Serengeti in October and April of each year. Some animals live inside the Ngorongoro Crater, the largest unbroken volcanic caldera in the world which can also be visited on your safari.
The Serengeti features gazelles, zebras, buffaloes, and blue wildebeests. The area also has cheetahs, lions, elephants, and hippos. The movie “Lion King” was based on this area of Tanzania. Safaris are available that feature traveling in jeeps, walking, or on animal transportation. Accommodations range from camp sites to modern lodges. The campsites feature beds, tents, and showers. The lodges have all of the modern conveniences. Spring in Tanzania starts in October and fall begins in March.
The Sarengeti has a large Hippo Pool where,at certain times, hippopotamuses congregate. This is one of the best areas to see hippos out of the water and mud. These are truly huge animals.
The Serengeti also has an area known as Oldivai Gorge which is an international archeological site and can be visited by tourists. The gorge is 30 miles long and over 200 feet deep in places. Fossils and other remains are easily viewed here.
A Tanaznia holiday will clearly offer the visitor a unique journey.
