The Serengeti National Park located in Tanzania invites thousands of people from across the world every year just to see the great migration of hundreds of thousands of land animals through the East African savannah. "It's the greatest wildlife spectacle on the planet," says exotic animal veterinarian and wildlife photographer from Huntington Harbour, Carl Palazzolo. Here are five sights for tourists to see and places to visit during their stay in Tanzania, according to the Coast Magazine.
First off, is to witness the yearly Great Migration that is happening in the Serengeti plains. 'Siringet' as the Maasai people call it "the place where the land runs on forever", is known for the migration of a ginormous wildebeest herd composed of about one million and five hundred thousand wildebeests, towards the grassier part of the savannah while being tracked by predators such as lions and cheetahs, and scavenging vultures, according to Financial Times.
"There is so much more to it," said Alex Edwards of Natural High Safari Company. "And I think the rains are the best time. We'll see some of the migration but then go the other way. It is one of the great journeys. Although we might end up huddling in downpours,"
The Ngorongoro Crater, a 12-mile wide volcanic caldera, is home to more than 20,000 of Africa's animals, like rhinos, zebras, lions and hyenas. Visitors may even see the elusive African Black Rhino if they are lucky enough. Visitors may also visit this place at night, when predators such as the leopards are more active.
Lake Ndutu is found in the southeast part of the Serengeti plains. A good time to visit this place is June to September, where in a nearby area, you can witness hundreds of thousands of baby wildebeest are born. A beautiful landscape to see is Mt. Kilimanjaro, a dormant volcano. This volcano is known for its three volcanic cones. Arusha Coffee Lodge is a good place to dine during a safari trip in Tanzania. This place is a coffee plantation wit beautiful grounds and it is also five minutes away from the airport.
