Mt. Kilimanjaro is the tallest free-standing mountain in the world, rising in breathtaking isolation from the surrounding coastal scrubland rising elevation around 900 metres to an imperious 5,895 metres.
Tarangire National Park was established in 1970 and is best visited in the dry season from July to September when the animals gather along the river.
Serengeti National Park is undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world, unequalled for its natural beauty and scientific value.
Lake Manyara National Park is comprised of forest, woodland, grasslands, and swamps. Two-thirds of the park is covered by water and Lake Manyara is host to thousands of flaamingoes, at certain times of year, as well as other diverse bird life. The highlight of Lake Manyara Park is the large population of elephants, tree-climbing lions and hippos that can be observed at a much closer range than in other parks. This park is also home to the largest concentration of baboons in the world.
Wildlife drives, canoeing (when water levels are high enough), mountain bike tours and bird watching are the most popular activities in Lake Manyara National Park. Our EcoBoma Campsite is located close to the shores of Lake Manyara (www.ecobomacamp.com)
Arusha National Park, although smaller than most in Tanzania, has a range of habitats that consist of the forest of Mount Meru, Ngurdoto Crater in the southeast section of the park, and Momela Lakes, a series of seven crater lakes.
