Arusha is the gateway city to the northwestern safari circuit of Tanzania. Nestled beneath Mt. Meru and nearby Mt. Kilimanjaro, Arusha marks the midway point between Cape Town and Cairo. A colorful town, Arusha is worth a short visit or at least an overnight before setting off on safari.
Located beneath the cliffs of the Manyara Escarpment, on the edge of the Rift Valley, Lake Manyara National Park offers varied ecosystems, incredible bird life, and breathtaking views. Located on the way to the Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park, Lake Manyara National Park is worth a stop in its own right. Its ground water forests, bush plains, baobab strewn cliffs, and algae-streaked hot springs offer incredible ecological variety in a small area, rich in wildlife and incredible numbers of birds.
Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed as the most voted Natural Wonder of Africa, the Serengeti National Park is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebras and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephants and giraffes, and thousands upon thousands of elands, topis, kongonis, impalas and Grant’s gazelles.
The Ngorongoro Crater is often called ‘Africa’s Eden’ and the ’8th Natural Wonder of the World’. A visit to the crater is primary for tourists visiting Tanzania for within the crater rim, large herds of zebra and wildebeest graze nearby while sleeping lions laze in the sun. At dawn, the endangered black rhino returns to the thick cover of the crater forests after grazing on dew-laden grass in the morning mist. Just outside the crater’s ridge, tall Masaai herd their cattle and goats over the green pastures through the highland slopes, living alongside the wildlife as they have for centuries.
Beyond the northwestern safari circuit of Tanzania, one finds Selous and Ruaha National Parks, a truly unspoiled wilderness and the raw essence of Africa. Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest free standing mountain offers a variety of hikes to Uhuru Peak and just off shore, visitors can relax in tranquil, exotic Zanzibar.
