Top Eight Wildlife Experiences on an East Africa Safari

—By Cathy Brown
Africa is a massive continent with astonishing diversity when it comes to climate, culture, flora and fauna. But if the classic safari experience is what you’re after, East Africa is where to focus. At Nat Hab, we love to take curious travelers to Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. Below are just a few of the unforgettable adventures that await you on the oldest inhabited continent on Earth.
How to Get Wall-Worthy Pictures of Africa’s Great Migration

How to Get Wall-Worthy Pictures of Africa’s Great Migration

—By Samantha Miller
Between January and March the epic journey of Africa’s most notorious wildlife begins in the south of the Serengeti, a region that spans the northern part of Tanzania.

How Gorilla Tourism Can Benefit Wildlife and People

How Gorilla Tourism Can Benefit Wildlife and People

—By WWF
WWF supports and promotes best practices for gorilla tourism. These practices ensure that the presence of tourists does not put mountain gorillas’ well-being at risk. Gorilla tourism also benefits local communities. WWF helps establish community-owned ecolodges; promotes employment of local people as porters, guides and park rangers; and invests a portion of tourist fees in community projects.

Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater: The Eighth Wonder of the Natural World

—By Gary Balfour and David Bygott
20 million years ago, a mountain that never had a chance to be named led to the creation of one of the most beautiful and exciting places on Earth for African safari-goers. The modern-day Ngorongoro Crater remains as amazing as it must have been at its birth. Home to almost every species of African mammal, it is possible to see the “Big Five” in a single game drive.
Africa’s Amazing Birdlife
