Tarangire National Park

Day after day of cloudless skies.

The savage sun sucks the dampness from the scene, preparing the earth a dusty red, the wilted grass as weak as straw. The Tarangire River has shrivelled to a sorry excuse for its wet season self. Anyway it is gagged with untamed life. Parched travelers have meandered several dry kilometres realizing that here, dependably, there is water.

Groups of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry stream mattress for underground streams, while transient wildebeest, zebra, bison, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland swarm the contracting tidal ponds. It's the most fabulous centralization of natural life outside the Serengeti biological system -a buffet for predators – and the one place in Tanzania where dry-nation impala, for example the stately edge eared oryx and unconventional as far back as anyone can remember necked gerenuk are normally watched.

Rubondo Island National Park

A pair of fish eagles guards the gentle bay, their distinctive black, white and chestnut feather pattern gleaming boldly in the morning sun. Suddenly, the birds toss back their heads in a piercing, evocative duet. On the sandbank below, a well-fed monster of a crocodile snaps to life, startled from its nap. It stampedes through the crunchy undergrowth, crashing into the water in front of the boat, invisible except for a pair of sentry-post eyes that peek menacingly above the surface to monitor our movements.

Rubondo Island is tucked in the southwest corner of Lake Victoria, the world's second-largest lake, an inland sea sprawling between Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya. With nine smaller islands under its wing, Rubondo protects precious fish breeding grounds.

Lake Manyara National Park

From the entrance gate, the road winds through an expanse of lush jungle-like groundwater forest where hundred-strong baboon troops lounge nonchalantly along the roadside, blue monkeys scamper nimbly between the ancient mahogany trees, dainty bushbuck tread warily through the shadows, and outsized forest hornbills honk cacophonously in the high canopy.

Contrasting with the intimacy of the forest is the grassy floodplain and its expansive views eastward, across the alkaline lake, to the jagged blue volcanic peaks that rise from the endless Maasai Steppes. Large buffalo, wildebeest and zebra herds congregate on these grassy plains, as do giraffes – some so dark in coloration that they appear to be black from a distance.
