Tanzania: Wildlife

Elephant

Tanzania is home to some of the best wildlife viewing experiences on this planet.  In one country you can witness the movement of 1.5 million wildebeest,  observe wild chimpanzees,  and even watch the hatching of green marine turtles. That is why we call Tanzania “Wildlife Country.” The country has 16 national parks designated for protection and conservation of flora and fauna, as well as 32 forest and game reserves, one of which is Africa’s largest and oldest game reserve; Selous Game Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage site. More than 25% of the country has been set aside to protect this natural treasure. There are multiple ways to see it all, from private guided walks though grassland and forest, to boating, cycling, horseback riding and – the most common – game drives. The country has three circuits ( North, South, West)  and one coastal.
