The following information is taken from our history section in the dossier:
Serengeti National Park
Serengeti, which sprawls across 14,763 sq km (5757 sq mi), is Tanzania's largest and most famous national park. The chief herbivore of Serengeti is the wildebeest of which there are up to two million. The amazing annual migration of wildebeest herds is one of the biggest attractions of the Serengeti. It begins at the Serengeti National Park near the Kenyan border, when huge herds of Wildebeests head for greener pastures in Kenya.
Starting in April each year, these animals migrate across the Serengeti's southern plains accompanied by Zebras, Antelopes, Gazelles, Lions and tourists. The park is also famous for its Lions, which can be tracked due to the fact that many have collars fitted with transmitters, as well as Cheetah and large herds of Giraffe.
Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Being one of the largest calderas in the world, 20km (12.4mi)-wide, 600m (1968ft) tall, with a variety of animals and vegetation, Ngorongoro Crater is one of Tanzania's most visited areas. The vegetation includes grasslands, swamps, forests, salt pans and a freshwater lake and has been compared to Noah's Ark and the Garden of Eden.
You should have no trouble finding Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo and many of the plains herbivores such as Wildebeest, Thomson's gazelle, Zebra and Reedbuck, as well as thousands of flamingo wading in the shallows of Lake Magadi, the soda lake on the floor of the crater.
Within the steep walls of the crater you will find considerable movement of animals and you may well come across local Maasai tribes people, who have grazing rights here, tending their cattle.
