Places of attractions

Tanzania is full of memorable places and within Ngorongoro:

Lake Magadi

This lake is fringed by pink long-legged flamingos. Lake Magadi is azure blue, shallow and fiercely alkaline with sodium carbonate. There are greater and lesser flamingos distinguishable by their black-tipped pink bills and dark red bills. The lake shrinks in the dry season that crystalline salt pans are licked by a hyena, jackals and other animals.

Lerai Fever Tree Forest

This tree is slim, tall yellow barked forming lace-canopied, airy, wonderland of glades. The foliage is the food of black rhinoceros. The elephants, eland, rhino, hyrax, bushbuck, and many more birds frequent here. A younger Fever-Tree is now forming at the Ngoitokitok Springs base.

 Gol Mountains

Gol Mountains feature pink cliffs, and surreal wilderness, enclosing Angata Kiti Pass.  At the foot of this mountain is Nasera Rock at 80 meters housing baboons, mountaineering klipspringers, and varied birds.

Salei Plains and Ol Karien Gorge

A rock-sided ravine is Ol Karien Gorge and the Salei Plains are bare. It is a Mecca for twitchers, as the griffon vulture breeds here in March and April, coinciding with the Great Migration providing plentiful food.
