Tarangire National Park - Tanzania

Tarangire National Park is one of Africa's most underrated parks. Tarangire has the second-highest concentration of the wildlife of any Tanzanian national park and reportedly has the largest concentration of elephant in the world.

The park has more than 700 resident lions and large herds of zebras, wildebeest, giraffes, buffaloes and more 450 bird species. In the dry season elephants dot the plains like cattle, and where lion roars and zebra barks fill the night, all set against a backdrop of constantly changing scenery.

Ngorongoro Crater - Tanzania

At 19km wide and with a surface of 264 sq km, Ngorongoro Crater is one of the world's largest unbroken calderas that isn't a lake.The Unesco World Heritage Site has steep unbroken walls soaring 400m to 610m and provides the setting for an incredible natural drama as prey and predators graze and stalk their way around the open grasslands, swamps, and acacia woodland on the crater floor.

The crater is home to some 300 elephants, 600 spotted hyenas, 55 lions and a large number of wildebeest, buffaloes, zebras and gazelles. Another huge draw is the chance to see the critically endangered black rhino, around 30 inhabit the crater floor. Unfortunately they are hard to photography as they are often too far away, but great to see with binoculars.
