Why Northern Tanzania. The Gems Of Northern  Tanzania

Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Tarangire, Manyara, Lake Natron, Oldonyo le Ngai. 

To visit 📞 +254723684974, Email: rnxploresafaris@gmail.com or safaribargains@gmail.com 
The different parks have similar animals but the highlights are totally different. 

a) Tarangire’s signature attractions are large elephants herds with individual groups of even hundred heads and the impressive stands of weird, ungainly baobab trees. Besides are you aware of Tarangire migration? Though not as impressive, spectacular as the Mara Serengeti migration it’s quite impressive too with 3000 elephants, 25000 wildebeest, 30000 zebras, gazelles, and fringe eared oryx. 

b) Ngorongoro has an impressive animal sighting. The crater is home to 25000 to 30000 big mammals including rare black rhinos, the beautiful scenery, phenomenal photography opportunities and local communities. Cultural visits organized through cultural tourism programs at Karatu. Other attractions include archeological site of Olduvai, Lake Natron and her flamingos, Empakai crater, the active volcano of Oldonyo le Ngai. Lake Natron is a Ramsar site, the breeding ground of lesser flamingos. The lake contains trona, called Sodium bicarbonate (Na3Co3) or washing powder a chemical essential for glass and detergent manufacturing. The lake’s pinkish, reddish coloration (see photo) is attributed to availability of cyanobacteria and other bacteria organism that photosynthesis just like plants.  Give Ngorongoro Crater a day, Lake Natron a day or two, Oldonyo Le Ngai 2 days. 

c) Serengeti’s
(http://goo.gl/d8az4k) highlights are annual wildebeest migration and the predator in action phenomenon. Serengeti has the largest concentration of predators, over 10000 of them. 8000 of these are spotted hyenas, lions number 3000. The rest are leopards, cheetah, serval etc. 

The Ndutu area of southern Serengeti /Ngorongoro is best explored in combination of Olduvai gorge. Ndutu highlights include archeological site of Olduvai, the Oldeani gorge, the shifting sands, the Olbalbal depression, Mt Makarot, the Selai Plains. The Oldeani gorge is the world famous breeding ground of Ruppel’s griffon (griffin) vulture. In the cliffs are Lamagyyer vultures, Nyanza swallow, klipspringers too. Oldeani is the best place to see authentic Masai morans. 

d) Lake Manyara National Park
. Is famous for its tree climbing lions and the ever green  ground water forest, the hot water springs and prolific birdlife. 
All the parks have over 400 species of birds recorded. So as you can see parks are not all about animals. Each has a history. Though animal species maybe similar the disposition is totally different. Lions in Tarangire may climb trees

Lake Manyara National Park- Tanzania Safaris, Attractions, Activities, Accommodation

Lake Manyara National Park- Tanzania Safaris, Attractions, Activities, Accommodation

Located in Tanzania’s northern tourism circuit, lake Manyara is a lovely scenic gem, a lush green paradise enjoying spectacular settings against the a back-drop of 600 m high rift-valley escarpments.    Though receiving less than 800ml of rainfall much of the park is covered by the ever green ground water forest.  The ground water  forest resembles a rain forest with tall large trees, lianas, struggling fig trees and canopy.  The ground ever green forest is home to a variety of wildlife. Primates thriving in the forest include the blue monkeys, baboons and vervet monkey.  Forest birds like the silvery-cheecked horn-bills abound. Also found here are the guinea fowls.

Lake Manyara is also a perfect bird watcher’s paradise with 400 species of birds recorded.  The star of this afivauna are the large flocks of pink feathered flamingos on the lake shores.  The availability of geothermal heated hot-springs makes it possible for the green algae, spiralina (food of flamingos) to thrive. Other wanders (water birds) to be found on the lake shores are pelicans, storks, jacanas, egrets, plovers, ducks and geese. Elephants and other mammals do visit the forest too.

Found in lake Manyara are the tree climbing lions.  Tree climbing lions are also to be found in Ngorongoro, Tarangire and Serengeti Parks.  In Uganda, will find them in Isasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National park. They climb up the trees to avoid the often painful bite of the tsetse flies.

Other big mammals in the park include buffaloes, zebra, giraffe, impala, waterbucks, klipspringer ( on the cliffs), leopards, warthogs, mongoose.

Another attraction in Lake Manyara is the Mto wa Mbu, a multi-ethnic with lively colourful markets and thriving cultural tourism programmes.  The central market is quite impressive with all the local produce including the Masai beads and shukas.  The cultural tourism programe includes visits to shambas (Farms). This visits the local farms where you will witness and even participate in making of banana beer (mbege).  Other excursions from Mto wa Mbu includes hikes to Lake Miwaleni, Balaa Hill or Njoro hotsprings.  Canoeing is also available on the west side of the lake when the water is high.

If you happen to be around on 22 of any month, visit the mnada, the animal auction market which attracts buyers from all over the country.

Activities in Lake Manyara National Park

Besides bird watching and game drives one can enjoy canoeing, mountain biking, micro lifting, night game drives, bush dinners, forest walks, birding. Outside the park one can enjoy the local cultural tourism programs.

Getting To Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara is approximately 120 Km from Arusha.  Give it  a 2 hours drive.  The park is best visited from June to September.  A 4×4 car is recommended. 

Accommodation in Lake Manyara

Most of accommodation facilities are outside the park within Mto wa Mbu and the surrounding area. Inside the park accommodation is limited to campsites.

News-Lewa Conservancy Loses 4 more rhinos reducing total to 71

December 5, 2012

(Isiolo, Kenya) – In the past week, the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy suffered the demoralizing loss of four rhinos to poachers. Two male black rhinos and two female black rhinos were slaughtered, bringing the population of rhino on Lewa back down to 71 individuals. In a country where the population is slightly above 600 animals, these incidents are a devastating blow to conservation efforts and show the enormous pressure that these animals are under.

Rhinotek, an 11-year-old female rhino was found dead at mid-day on the 1st of December. The initial assessment did not give a clear indication of the cause of death but further veterinary examination established that the animal died from a bullet wound to the stomach. Nyota, a 20-year-old female and Serian, a seven-year-old male were shot dead at approximately 1:00 am, on the 2nd of December. Another carcass, later on identified as Jazz, a male rhino, was discovered mid-afternoon on the 2nd of December. Three of the rhino horn sets were intact and have since been recovered for safekeeping. The poachers managed to remove the other set of horns.

Many experts highlight that Africa’s rhinos are facing the worst poaching crisis in decades, with the most serious poaching upsurges in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Kenya. Although population figures for both black and white rhinos have increased since 2007, because of the increase in poaching, there is still grave concern for the rhino’s future. The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is not immune to this crisis and has lost 10 rhinos in the last three years.

“These incidents serve as a constant reminder of the harsh reality and rapidly escalating threat faced by rhinos. Lewa is now more than ever determined to counter these threats by increasing our security and monitoring efforts, reinforcing the important contribution that Lewa’s wildlife is making to local communities, and minimizing the risk posed to the remaining rhino population,” Mike Watson, Lewa’s CEO reaffirms the commitment towards rhino conservation, despite this most recent setback.
