Tanzania is notably in the World
for its richness in wildlife and birdlife national parks let alone
the series of highest Mountains in Africa and the World at large.
Been the case Tanzania has acquired large amount of tourist enthusiastic
with nature comparing with other countries in Africa.
Nature and Natural Resources estimates
that more than 350 different species of mammals roam the country.
An easy way to watch wildlife and birdlife is to book a private
or group safari, known as an overland safari. Since safaris are
often once-in-a-lifetime tour, expeditions and adventures, it's
crucial to get it right the first time. Here's how:
Choosing the Right Safari
Determine what you want out of
the experience of Tanzania wildlife, birdlife, beach holiday, walking
safari, mountain climbing, cultural touring, agro-cultural touring
and/or other community development project visiting. Tanzania has
15 national parks full of numerous birdlife and wildlife Serengeti,
Manyara, Tarangire, Arusha, Mikumi, (Selous - reserved, Ngorongoro
- conserved), Ruaha, Udzungwa, Gombe, Mahale, Katavi, Saadani, Mkomazi,
Saanane and Rubondo Island national park. Each park has unique landscape,
wildlife and birdlife.
Famous safari in Tanzania includes
the great wildlife migration of Serengeti and contiguous Maasi Mara
national park? The Chimpanzee trekking in Gombe national park? Elephants
or leopards viewing in Serengeti, Selous and Tarangire? Walking
safari inside national parks and around the mountains, or mountain
Kilimanjaro, Meru climbing and Oldoinyo Lengai trekking? Flying
between destinations, or driving? Staying at an enclosed campsite
or an unfenced one? The lap of bush luxury or a minimalist bush
camp? Contact our touring specialist for tailor-made safari.
Deciding How Long to Stay
Mike Nesbitt, president of the
African Safari Company, recommends taking a safari that lasts at
least ten days so you can experience more than one park. "But
don't try to do more than two countries during a two-week trip,"
says Nesbitt. "Otherwise you'll spend too much time at airports
and be forced to stay overnight in big cities. Flight schedules
between countries are usually only once a day, if that, and frequently
don't connect conveniently." Shorter safaris are rewarding
if well arranged. You can visit the Maasai Mara in Kenya in three
days, for instance, because it's a small park. If exploring a bigger
region, such as the Serengeti in Tanzania, "you could easily
spend eight to ten days and never be bored," says Nesbitt.
