The Serengeti is African savanna at its largest and most majestic. Vast plains of rippling golden grasses scattered with thorny, splayed acacia trees against a… backdrop of far-flung hazy blue hills create the picture-perfect! Nearly 15 000km2 (5700 square miles) in area, the giant park is as big as Northern Ireland and sees animals roam freely within its massive borders. Lake Manyara National Park Lake Manyara National Park boasts some of the most spectacular views in all of Africa. In the East are the red cliffs of the Great Rift Valley, rising hundreds of meters into the air and providing a magnificent sheer backdrop to the lake below. Standing on top of the escarpment to the west, the green water glistens below for as far as the eye can see. Offsetting the emerald of the lake is the pink tinged plumage of the resident flamingos, which frequent the rich waters of the lake along with 380 other resident bird species such as pelicans and herons. Tarangire National Park Known as the ‘Land of the Giants’ owing to the abundance of elephants and Baobab trees, the Tarangire National Park is an undiscovered gem of Tanzania. Not as popular with tourists as the better-known Serengeti, Tarangire National Park offers the same superb level of game viewing without the crowds. Named after the Tarangire River, the reserve is situated west of Arusha and is easier to access than both the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater National Parks. With the surreal, almost otherworldly baobab trees dominating the landscape of Tarangire, the silhouetted trees provide breathtaking photographic opportunities. Regularly visited by Tarangire’s substantial elephant population, the Baobab trees also play host to arguably the best birdlife diversity in Eastern Africa with some 490 different species having been recorded.
