NYERERE NATONAL PARK
In Nyerere National Park, you can see a large variety of birds and reptiles, in addition to almost all of Africa’s well-known creatures. Because of this, Nyerere National Park was previously listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982, and the UN considers it to be one of the world’s 25 biodiverse zones. With 1300 animals, the park has one of the greatest populations of lions in Africa, 3,700 African wild dogs, the largest population of African wild dogs on the entire continent, and more than half of Tanzania’s elephant population.
Swamps, open grasslands, riverine forests, Miombo woodlands with spectacular baobab and acacia trees, as well as doum- and borassus palms up to 30 meters high, may all be found in Nyerere National Park. Mango trees can also be found in well-watered areas. The Rufiji River creates a maze of islands, sandbars, and lagoons with its numerous side branches and enormous lakes. Hippos are wallowing in the murky river, and crocodiles are sunbathing on their banks.
MIKUMI NATIONAL PARK
The fifth-largest national park in Tanzania, Mikumi, is situated 286 kilometers from Dar es Salaam. Elephants, buffaloes, and zebras are migrating to and from the northern half of Mikumi National Park since the area shares an environment with Nyerere National Park. Similar to those of the Serengeti, the grass savannas of the Mkata Floodplains in the park’s northwest host/support A huge population of animals, including buffalo, wild dogs, eland, elephant, giraffe, hartebeest, zebra, leopard, lion, impala, sable antelope, warthog, waterbuck, wildebeest, and greater kudu.
