• Trip Description
Gem and walking tour program is an eight day try to give you an insight of Tanzania mining industry and the leisure of tourism, there are many part of Tanzania that do mining but we chose to give you Ruby mining because of its nearness to the national parks. After visiting the park you will visit three national parks. The Arusha National Park being one of the listed parks followed by Ngorongoro and Serengeti national park
Ngorongoro national park, often called the eighth natural wonder of the world, the Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact crater in the world. About 2 million years ago the Ngorongoro volcano erupted, and its walls collapsed. The volcano floor sank to create a natural enclosure with its 600m tall walls. Now, at over 19 kilometres wide, Ngorongoro Crater is filled with great areas of acacia forest, hippo filled swamps and open grasslands. These different habitats contain over 30,000 animals – including elephants, warthogs, flamingos, magnificent birdlife, the rare black rhinoceros and all the predatory cats. The Maasai can also be seen grazing their cattle alongside the buffalo and wildebeest.
The Serengeti National Park is the world's last great wildlife refuge as it contains an estimated three million large animals, most of which take part in a seasonal migration that is one of nature's wonders. The area covers 14,763 sq kms and the name Serengeti comes from the Maasai 'Siringet', meaning endless plains.
