Natural Tanzania

Lake Manyara, North Tanzania – Ringed by volcanic peaks, dotted with searing hot springs, the Manyara region is a haven for bird lovers. Over 400 species have been sighted here. The wildlife ranges from Baboons, tree climbing Lions, Dik-Diks, Banded Mongoose to curious Klipspringers.

Lake Natron, North Tanzania – The lake that turns animals to stone? Not quite, but its salty waters mixed with natrocarbonatites from the nearby Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano calcifies most animals. However, it is the largest breeding ground in Africa for lesser Flamingos and the place for phantasmagorical photo opps.

Katavi National Park, West Tanzania – Off the tourist map, you won’t be going bumper to bumper with other 4x4s here. The Katavi Plains have knee high golden grass and thousands of Zebra, Topi, Impala, Hartebeest, Giraffe and Defassa Waterbucks. Huge Buffalo herds and prides of Lions ensure frequent predator-prey contests.
