You might be unaware of this, but East Africa is a beautiful continent. Out of all the wild landscapes to visit in East Africa, Tanzania stands out. The United Republic of Tanzania is within the great lakes region of Africa. This region has specifically stood out as it was one of the few regions in the world whose people didn’t fall for any tricks during the wars in the 1900s. They segregated themselves from any Europeans who were showing interest in the region and had sent missionaries over to promote their faith and beliefs.
After the many unsuccessful attempts made by the many super-powers of the world to take over Africa, it was left alone. East Africa made its mark on the map when it was found that they had the world’s second-largest freshwater lake, Lake Victoria. Understanding the significance of their natural resources, the governments of East African countries like Tanzania set aside large areas to make large national parks. If you’re looking for a luxury African safari, you should know that these parks make up for great tourist attractions, such as:
Lake Manyara National Park:
The government of Tanzania found the Lake Manyara national park in 1960. This gigantic park covers a total of 124 square miles and has everything you might be looking for when visiting Tanzania. Since it’s built around the seventh-largest lake in Tanzania, it’s home to more than a hundred different species of birds. Not only that but from Spring to Autumn, you can find thousands of flamingos gathered around the shores of the lake as well as pelicans and hippos.
The scenery is one of a kind as well. Often documented in many tv shows and documentaries, the Lake Manyara national park’s landscape is one of the finest Tanzania has to offer. With marshlands and grassy plains to beautiful woodland, opting for an eXplore Plus Travel safari will ensure that your priorities are met, and your time is well spent. You can enjoy game drives and walks alongside the beautiful wildlife.
Ruaha National Park:
When someone mentions the names of some of the largest parks in East Africa, they never forget about the Ruaha national park. Home to a large population of elephants, it’s popularly known as “Maison des éléphants” which means home of elephants in French. Over 12,000 elephants are found to migrate through Ruaha each year.
Elephants aren’t the only animals found in Ruaha, it’s home to wildlife consisting of lions, zebras, and foxes. Going out and about in the Ruaha national park is only a recommended option when it’s supported by a mobile camp. There’s nothing as breathtaking as the varied scenery in the Ruaha national park. As it’s also known as “untouched nature”, you can be assured that there won’t be many visitors there and you will have the full attention of the locals. People think of the Ruaha national park to be inaccessible when it’s actually not. Visit the heart of Tanzania and experience everything it has to offer.
