ABOUT THE PARK:


Following the rift valley to Kenya, the fault divides into eastern and western arms. Manyara is within the eastern arm whose escarpment rises to approcimately 1,200 to 1,300 meters  above sea level. Nevertheless the altitude in the park is about 945 meters  above sea level.

The name manyara is derived from the maasai word – Emanyara – a plant used for making living stockades around their kraals. It is a popular plant  among the maasai community as a hedge for protecting their livestock against predators and cattle rustlers. The plant is scientifically called Euphorbia tirucalii.
On the other hand, other maasai elders argue that it comes from the word “Ol manyara” Which means – Settlement. The outstanding features of the park include the spectacular escarpment of the rift valley wall, on the western side of the park; It is part of the Great Rift valley which stretches for about 8,000km from Turkey to the mouth of the Zambezi River in Mozambique.

This Park: " Siringet" Meaning " Endless Plains "


Although thousands of writers have used the power of the pen, to put down their ideas on paper, in many different ways about the Serengeti national park, their work may be summed up in a few words only: from the wildlife point of view "The Serengeti national park remains  the most unique area in the world”.

Serengeti – a name that seems to conjure up all that is wildest in wildest Africa is the oldest, second largest and best known national park in Tanzania. Admittedly, over the years it has been at the forefront of international research on various ecological monitoring programmes and other related disciplines leading to ecosystem dynamics as well as the development of conservation management.

 

 This be chunk of land with an area of 14, 763sq km was first protected in 1921 and it became the first national park in 1951.  Its Diamond jubilee was celebrated in January 1981.
The Serengeti national park is a host of many scenic features. Take the grassland savannah plains for instance; these extensive treeless short grassland plains are repository for calving wildebeest. From December to may each year, up to two million ungulates graze in the area. However, aprt from ungulates, the park has about 7,500 hyenas and 2,800 lions in a spectacular setting.

 The Ngorongoro Crater is undoubtedly the best place in Tanzania to view black rhino as well as large prides of lion that include magnificent black-manned males.
