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


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.
