ANIMAL MIGHT BE SEEN DURING GAME DRIVES

Here is amazing list of some animal that you might likely to spot during you trip

Lions

It is common to spot lions or other predatory animals in Tanzania wildlife parks. Throughout the year the lions roam the parks in search of prey or shade. Tanzania is known to have a healthy population of lions, lionesses and cubs. The best time to spot the predatory animals is during the dry season. During the summer months between April to June, the animals stay near the river banks. This is when you can spot most of them.

Elephants in Tanzania are a very common sight and a part of the “Big Five” club. Each wildlife park or forest reserve has an abundant population of elephants. The mighty animals are very friendly and usually and are a good sport. During a safari you can even get up close to an elephant.

Rhinos have been an endangered species for quite some time now and they are very rare to see. These animals occupy various habitats, like the dry forests, thickets, savannas, open plains, and sparse thorn scrub. They’re typically ill-tempered and unpredictable and may attack whatever’s unfamiliar to them.

African buffalo

These African animals possess an incredible sense of smell and travel through the water to avoid the lions, who’re waiting to ambush them. These mammals are menacingly aggressive when harmed, making them one of the Big 5.

The best time to spot this breed of cattle is during the months of June and July. During January and February, the Wildebeests settle down in a particular area for calving season.

Zebra

The white and black stripe animal has always been a favourite for most of us. We have seen a lot of them on the wildlife channels. If you are planning to visit Tanzania, you will have the chance to see the Zebras personally.

You can spot them in herds in the fields or near the river banks. Most of the safari tours cover areas where you can spot animals like Zebra, Giraffes, Hippos, Wildebeests, etc.
