Lake Manyara/ Serengeti/ Ngorongoro
Manyara National park is serene and beautiful with main attractions of a
rich bird life, tree-climbing lions, its elephants, and hippos that you can
see at closer range than most other places. Lake Manyara is an alkaline lake
and at certain times of the year hosts thousands of flamingos and a
diversity of other bird life. Although it is one of the smallest parks, its
vegetation is so diverse enabling it to host a variety of wildlife habitats.
visit the park all year round but there is less game in the park during the
dry season – July /October, where they migrate to the Masai Mara in Kenya.
During March to May the herds move in search of grazing to the southern
section and in May to June, they move towards the western corridor of the
park. Serengeti in the low season will still offer game viewing to match
that of any park in Africa, and for some, the fact that there will be fewer
tourists may be an added bonus.
Ngorongoro crater is the world’s biggest whole volcanic caldera at 8300 sq
km and is arguably the most stunning arena. It is frequently described as
one of the wonders of the world, not only because of its geological
magnificence, but also because it serves as an extraordinary natural
sanctuary for some of Africa’s largest populations of large mammals.
Ngorongoro and other freestanding mountains are volcanic in origin, formed
during the fracturing process that created the Rift valley 15 to 20 million
years ago. When it peaked in size 3 million years ago it was a similar
height to Mt. Kilimanjaro today.
