Tanzania is known for its rich wildlife and is home to some of the most famous national parks and game reserves in Africa, such as Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and Selous Game Reserve. These areas offer a chance to see a variety of wildlife, including the “big five” animals—lions, elephants, buffalo, leopards, and rhinoceroses, as well as cheetahs, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, and many other species.
Tanzania is also home to the annual wildebeest migration, which is considered one of the greatest natural spectacles on earth. The migration usually takes place between July and September and involves millions of wildebeests, zebras, and gazelles moving across the Serengeti in search of food and water.
