If you’ve read any of our other blog posts about the different national parks in Tanzania, then you probably would already be convinced that a safari at Tanzania’s national parks is just what you need. But if you’re still considering reasons why you should invest in a safari experience in Tanzania, then keep reading!
The number of animal species in Tanzania will shock you. A safari in Tanzania will bring you up close to the mighty king of the jungle: The Lion! The world-famous Ngorongoro Crater, situated in northern Tanzania, is a renowned destination that anyone should visit at least once in a lifetime. This agriculturally productive valley, thought to have formed as a consequence of a volcano eruption, is one of the world’s finest natural wildlife safari locations.
The Ngorongoro crater has even been given the name as one of Africa’s Seven Natural Wonders. Buffaloes, elephants, leopards, and rhinos, as well as a slew of other exclusively African animals, like the zebra, wildebeest, gazelle, cheetahs, and even hippos, can all be found in this magnificent crater. The crater’s confined nature has generated its own environment, and it can be called one of the best game-spotting prospects.
Apart from the Ngorongoro crater, you can spot teeming wildlife in Ruaha, Selous, Tarangire, Mikumi, and other national parks as well.
A stay at any of Tanzania’s locations can be a treat to behold. While the accommodation options are limited, all of them are outstanding and super comfortable. In any of Tanzania’s national parks, you have the option between camping and lodging. All the accommodations offer fantastic food and comfortable bedding!
If you want to see little butterflies, beetles, and other interesting species up close, then you can even indulge in a walking safari at Ruaha! In the presence of a knowledgeable guide (don’t worry, you’ll be safe!), the 2-3 hour walking safari provides a genuinely unique special viewpoint of the park’s intriguing fauna. You may get up close with huge buffaloes, giraffes, and elephant herds when out strolling if you are extremely quiet and discreet.
The locals and tour guides at Tanzania are super friendly and helpful and will make your journey twice as enjoyable. They’re all very welcoming people, and even the baristas and waiters at restaurants will make you feel special and at home. That’s one big reason to go there!
