Wildlife areas of Tanzania

The place was altogether amazing: there was a very short flat shoreline (in some cases on a few feet) and then mountains went up, nearly 1000 meters above the lake.
Chimps rarely came down to the lake shore, but baboons and warthogs and bushpigs loved to play along the lake. By monojussi (Flickr).

- Tarangire National Park Tarangire National Park supports one of the highest densities of large ungulates in East Africa, in addition oryx, lesser kudu, and the largest population of elephants in northern Tanzania (now numbering close to 2,500). The wildlife in Tarangire migrate on a seasonal basis, leaving the relative safety of the park and dispersing onto neighboring lands in search of mineral-rich forage. Much of this land belongs to the pastoral Maasai communities, who do not traditionally hunt wild animals and have coexisted with the migrating herd Here

Tanzania, truly, is a safari destination without peer. The statistics speak for themselves: an unparalleled one-quarter of its surface area has been set aside for conservation purposes, with the world-renowned Serengeti National Park and incomprehensibly vast Selous Game Reserve heading a rich mosaic of protected areas that collectively harbour an estimated 20 percent of Africa’s large mammal population.
