Lake Manyara National Park is a small but scenic safari park, excellent for birdwatching and a good area to find elephant, as well as the potential excitement of spotting a legendary Lake Manyara tree-climbing lion.
Lake Manyara is a good soft introduction to the safari experience. It is a magical and pretty park that winds its way around a mainly forested driving route between the banks of soda water lake and the impressive rise of the Great Rift escarpment.
Elephant, giraffe, buffalo and wildebeest can be found grazing in unexpected clearings or heading towards the water to drink or wash, and the rivers and riverbeds provide scenic vistas for possible animal spottings.
Warthog seem to thrive here, growing notably fat and tuskered, and it is a natural playground for baboons and monkeys. The tree-climbing lion of Lake Manyara inspire extensive theorising as to the wonders of evolution, and are also notoriously rarely seen.

This land is justifiably famous for its huge concentrations of wildlife, especially the big cats, as well as being the stomping ground of the Great
Migration, a massive accumulation of 1.5 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebras and 350,000 gazelles stretching their legs over 1,200 miles in an
annual race to find enough water and green grass for their survival. The National Park is broadly divided into three distinct areas, the
Seronera Valley and Seronera River, the Western Corridor and the Northern Lobo area that extends northwards through the Lamai Wedge to the Maasai
Mara. Most visitors enter the Serengeti through the southern Naabi Hill Gate, which opens onto the Seronera Valley; a vibrant wildlife area at the
heart of the Serengeti.

Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge http://www.sopalodges.com/ngorongoro-sopa-lodge/overview

 

Ngorongoro is a fascinating and unusual Conservation Area which includes the Ngorongoro Crater at its centre, and then extends through the Crater
Highlands, in which local tribes are permitted to maintain their traditional  lifestyles in as natural environment as possible.
This extraordinary volcanic landscape is rich and fertile, with stunning craters and lakes, and the high altitude creates a malaria-free micro climate.

The crater is said to have the most dense concentration of wildlife in Africa. As such, Ngorongoro Crater has achieved world renown, and attracts
a growing number of visitors each year. Even if time is limited this natural but accessibly small caldera ensures a rewarding safari.

-The Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest intact caldera in an exceptional geographical position, forming a spectacular bowl of about 265
sq km with sides up to 600m deep. It is the stalking ground of 20 – 30,000 wild animals at any one time.

The crater floor consists of a number of ecological environments that include grassland, swamps, forests and Lake Makat, a central soda lake
filled by the Munge river. All these various habitats attract various wildlife to drink, wallow, graze, hide or climb.

-Although animals are free to move in and out of this contained environment, the rich volcanic soil, lush forests and spring source lakes on the crater
floor tend to incline both grazers and predators to remain throughout the year.

-Ngorongoro Crater is also presently one of the most likely areas in Tanzania to see the endangered Black Rhino, as a small population are
thriving in this idyllic and protected environment one of the only areas  where they continue to breed in the wild.

-The Crater rim, over 2,200 metres high, touches swathes of clouds for most days of the year, with cool high altitude vapours that seem to bring a clean
lightness to the air, and also a chill. These highlands wake up to a misty  fog in most months.
