The eastern serenget,Tanzania national park

Happy new year everyone,this is my first post in 2019.My campaign is to share with you my beautiful country Tanzania and its attractions,today we will explore the eastern  Serengeti national park and i will share with you not only Serengeti but the whole northern circuit attraction and of course the story from Savannah!!!!

EASTERN SERENGETI

Research Marsh and Kopjes

Research Kopjes is one of top 3 highlights of the entire Serengeti Ecosystem. Home to cheetahs, the park’s largest lion pride and subject of a charming book entitled ‘Lions Share’,Research Kopjes is a hidden gem on the remote edge of the Serengeti. The marsh, which lies directly in front of the kopjes, is fed by underground springs and is a magnet for plains game as it holds the only source of water in the area. The mothers of the research lion pride often leave their cubs in the thick reeds that surround the marsh while off hunting.

Naabi Hill

Naabi Hill towers above the short grass plains of the Serengeti. Other than a hot air balloon safari, the viewpoint from the top of Naabi Hill offers the best views of the plains. This acacia covered hill functions as the Serengeti’s park gate and shelters antelope, elephant and giraffe. It’s also home base for the Naabi lion pride and den site for cheetahs. During the green season, Naabi Hill is the epicenter of the great migration and the surrounding plains can be choked black with wildebeest

Gol Kopjes

The Gol Kopjes boast the highest concentration of cheetahs in Africa. The world famous Gol Kopjes complex, called the world’s largest Japanese rock garden, offers the finest game viewing in Africa during the green season. Hundreds of game loops bisect the constellation of kopjes and photographic opportunities abound (perhaps the best in the park). With a little patience, there is a good chance to witness the world’s fastest land animal sprinting across the plains in pursuit of the fleet footed Thomson’s Gazelle.

Barafu Gorge and Kopjes

The safari to Barafu is rewarded with one of the most extraordinary landscape in Africa! Barafu Gorge dissects the remote eastern plains. Rising above the gorge is the Barafu Kopjes Complex, a series of seven pinkish granite kopjes that straddle the eastern border of the Serengeti. The word Serengeti originates from the Maasai word ‘Siringit’, meaning ‘endless plains’, and the area around Barafu best exemplifies this with mind boggling 360 degree panoramas of rolling plains filled with tens of thousands of gazelles.

Lemuta Hill and Waterhole

Lemuta Hill offers simply the most remote and adventurous safari experience in Tanzania. We could almost guaranty that one would not encounter a single other vehicle. There are no landmarks here, nothing but green grass and blue sky and the infinite space between. Nothing, that is, except for a single hill that rises in the distance; Lemuta Hill is impossible to miss as it singularly ascends above the rest of the horizon. Visiting this area provides for unique opportunities such as off road driving,and walking safaris.

Lake Natron

Lake Natron is the main breeding site in East Africa for 2.5 million lesser flamingoes. The characteristic red color of Lake Natron is a byproduct of salt loving organisms that thrive in the high salinity levels. Algae also flourish in these alkaline waters and is the sole source of food for the thousands of flamingos that can be found here. The flamingoes perform an amazing display; marching in groups, heads up, turning different directions in tight formation. Watching them feed with their upside-down bills is also fascinating.
