Tanzania is one of Africa's greatest safari destinations, home to the legendary Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater and Mount Kilimanjaro as well as the 'spice island' of Zanzibar. This fully revised edition of the guide covers every accessible national park, reserve and safari destination as well as popular and off-the-beaten-track tourist attractions. It includes in-depth coverage of wildlife and natural history, background information on the Maasai and other tribes, archaeological points of interest and an introduction to the Swahili language. It is the only guidebook to include the many new private concessions around the major reserves.

About the Author:

Philip Briggs has been exploring Africa since 1986, when he spent several months backpacking on a shoestring from Nairobi to Cape Town. He has visited more than two dozen African countries and written about most of them for specialist travel and wildlife magazines including Africa Birds & Birding, Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Travel Africa and Wanderlust.

Excerpt from previous edition

The one part of the northern Serengeti to match the southern plains for general game viewing is the wedge of sloping grassland that divides the Mara River from the Kenya border. Sometimes referred to as the Mara Triangle, this southern extension of the legendary Maasai Mara National Reserve supports prodigious herds of eland, topi, gazelle, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo et al throughout the year, and it can be little short of mind- boggling when the migration moves in over July to September. During this time of year, large herds of wildebeest frequently gather on one or other side of the river, sometimes milling around for hours, even days, before one brave or foolish individual initiates a sudden river crossing, often for no apparent reason – indeed, its not unusual for the same group of wildebeest to cross back in the opposite direction within hours of the initial crossing, suggesting these rather slow-witted beasts adhere firmly to the maxim that the grass is always greener on the other side.

Prior to 2005, the Mara Triangle had been effectively closed to casual tourism for decades, partly due to its remoteness from any lodge, and partly due to problems with banditry and poaching. Today, the few visitors who make it up this far are still unlikely to much other tourist traffic, but the area can be readily accessed from the seasonal Sayari and Lemala Tented Camp, both of which lie to the south of the Mara River near Kogatende Rangers Post, where a concrete causeway crosses the river.
