The parks are also home to the sought-after Big five animals. The African Big five include lions, leopard, buffalo, rhino, and Elephant. The black rhino can be seen at the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
Animals that can be seen in abundance include elephants, giraffes, hippos, buffaloes, zebras, wildebeest, and the lion and hyena are common. Rare and occasional animals include the black rhino, leopard, and cheetah.
Wildebeest are one of the world’s natural wonders with a spectacular sighting to offer, it’s no ordinary group of animals. The Great Wildebeest Migration is an annual migration of giant herds of animals all through from Northern Tanzania to Kenya.
Each wildebeest migration constitutes over two million wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles moving from Serengeti National Park of Tanzania and Masai Mara National Park of Kenya. Seeing millions of wildebeest on safari could be only possible in Tanzania and Kenya in the whole world.
With these wildlife animals, Tanzania is a classic African tour destination with all parks great for safari but some being exceptional.
These are Serengeti National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tarangire National Park, Selous Game Reserve, Ruaha National Park, and Katavi National Park. A visit to these will offer that classic African wild game drive.
Serengeti National Park is one of the most famous African wildlife safari game drives destinations. The park is renowned for a large concentration of wildlife including the great migration which includes about two million wildebeest.
Serengeti is almost endless grassy plains covering about 14,750 square kilometers with the oldest ecology in the country. This is the second-largest protected area in Tanzania after Selous Game Reserve.
From the kopjes in the north to the acacia dotted endless plains to the south a stay in Serengeti is amazing as you can spend time in different points of the park and feel like it’s all a new experience.
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area has open plains with little dotted trees which attract highly nutritious grass which attracts wildebeest, especially in January for the calving season which takes about 2 months then after migration back to the central Serengeti area when the newly born have the strength to walk for long distances.
The best time for wildlife viewing in Tanzania is in the dry season which from late June to October and the best time for wildebeest viewing is during the months of June and July.
The long rainy season is between March to May and the parks in the Southern and Western circuit are less accessible during this time.
