Tanzania  |  Parks of Tanzania

Tanzania is a wildlife lovers' paradise and Africa's prime game-viewing country. From the vast plains of the Serengeti in the north, to the chimpanzee sanctuaries of Gombe and Mahale in the west and the lesser-known 'jewels' of Ruaha and the Selous in the south, Tanzania's biodiversity is truly breathtaking. The sheer numbers of birds and animals - there are an estimated 32,000 elephants in Selous Game Reserve alone - are testament to the fact that almost a quarter of the country's total land area is protected, either as national parks, reserves or conservation areas. And research projects carried out in these protected areas continue to make an impact on science at large: from Marion East's study of Serengeti spotted hyenas, which shows how this female-dominated society 'commute', often hundreds of kilometres, to their prey; to the Mkomazi Research Project, a collaborative study of the flora and fauna in Mkomazi Game Reserve, by Tanzania's Department of Wildlife, the Royal Geographical Society and Oxford University, which has yielded a number of new species.
