Lake Manyara National Park offers a wilderness experience in diverse habitats, from its Rift Valley soda lake to dense woodlands and steep mountainsides. Apart from a spectacular setting, the park is well known for its unusual tree-climbing lions and the vast elephant herds it was established to protect. The scenic beauty of Manyara is the main reason to travel here and certainly deserves a visit and is best used as a soft introduction to a safari. It’s also famous for the thousands of pink flamingos around the breathtaking soda-ash Lake Manyara.

Lake Manyara is often visited for an afternoon's game drive on the way to Ngorongoro as the game concentrations are not nearly as high as surrounding parks, but there are a number of unique species that make it a good reason to safari here. Lake Manyara's tree climbing lions are the parks main attraction. A lion relaxing in an Acacia tree is an incredible site. The park is also famous for elephants and a huge number of baboons. And due to its varied landscape has an impressive range of other game including wildebeest, buffalo, hippo, zebra, warthog, waterbuck, dik-dik and impala.

In the Selous Game Reserve the rivers and lakes are the lifeblood to a park that hosts phenomenal volumes of game including lion prides, Africa’s largest elephant populations, and most likely it’s largest buffalo, hippo and crocodile. It’s much quieter than the Northern parks making it a hidden gem!

This park is so vast it is impossible to count its game and that is exactly what makes it special. The Selous is untouched African wilderness and the fact that it is still easily accessible makes it one of our favorite safari locations. Home to some of Africa's best boat safaris, walking and fly camping trips, the Selous has Tanzania's greatest diversity of safari activities. It is not only a great place for the safari enthusiast but also an amazing introduction to unspoiled Africa.

The wildlife in the Selous is both resident and migratory. Lion are particularly strong here and there are large numbers of leopard. The park also hosts very good buffalo, giraffe, eland, hyena, sable, hippo, crocodile, kudu, baboon, wildebeest, zebra, impala, hartebeest, colobus and vervet monkeys. With everything going on you will have plenty to see and do in the Selous.

Not just a chimpanzee trekking destination, Mahale National Park has an absurdly good beach with gin clear waters. And the park itself would stake its claim as one of the most interesting destinations in Africa. Mahale is located in Western Tanzania to the South of Kigoma town, it borders Lake Tanganyika – the World’s longest, second deepest and least polluted freshwater lake that harbors an estimated 1000 unique fish species.

Like its northerly neighbor Gombe, this park is home to some of the Africa’s last remaining wild chimpanzees, a population of roughly 900. Tracking the chimps of Mahale is a magical experience that must be seen to appreciated. Mahale’s chimps have been studied and habituated for more than 40 years and are well accustomed to people. Nevertheless, they are wild animals so need their space, so care and respect are the order of the day.

There are many things to do while at Mahale. There are unique animals to see like the Angola Colobus monkey (pictured), and a wide range of forest birds. Lake Tanganyika is spectacular and includes activities like snorkeling, water sports activities and just relaxing and enjoying the beach. Local sports fishermen can be seen until the setting sun ends their day. And a hike to the Park’s highest point “Nkungwe” (8,069 feet) holds mysteries untold. Mahale is one of the most unique safari destinations in Tanzania. Enjoy!
