#ngorongoro#highlands#trekking in #Tanzania
Enjoy a short wildlife safari followed by an experience of Tanzania on foot in some of the most untouched and remote areas,where very few numbers of trevellers venture out to including Ngorongoro Conservation area.Trekking tour takes you through the diverse landscapes of the Ngorongoro Crater Highlands. You will hike through grassy plains and the mountainous countryside as well as thick mountain forest and the savannah landscape of the Rift Valley.
Amani is a 37-yr old park ranger in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro, Tanzania. Throughout his 6-year stint as a park ranger, he has seen seven of his co-rangers shot dead and numerous injured after encounters with poachers.
Poachers go for the ivory tusks of the elephants and the horns of rhinoceroses. They usually hide inside the hollow trunks of the baobab tree that is common throughout the savannahs. The ivory is often carved into ornaments and jewellery, while the rhino horns are, according to Chinese medicine, supposed to be an aphrodisiac. Now, possession of these are merely a show of wealth and prosperity. China is still the biggest consumer market for such products with Vietnam coming in at second.
Though Amani is resolute in his duties to keep wildlife safe and free, he also maintains a heartbreaking belief that most of the animals he is protecting will be decimated in 50 years, leaving the next generation of Africans with little to no chance of seeing them in their natural habitat, only in books. As recently as three years ago, he told me an elephant was getting killed EVERY FIFTEEN MINUTES. He is also not allowed to divulge information of the rhino population due to the risk of poachers hunting them.
Human beings can always be relied upon to ravage every living thing in this planet, yet we can also side with people like Anani and the groups that support anti-poaching and do what we can to sustain wildlife in this planet.
Took a step back and soaked up the incredible sights and animals of the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti the past few days. Now going to take a step onto Mt Meru and try and soak up Sunrise at the Summit. East Africa, you're magic 🐯🐆🦁🌿🌟 #Tanzania#Mtmeru#Serengeti#Ngorongoro
Hoy termina uno de los mejores viajes de mi vida. Viajar solo mola pero bien acompañado lo peta. Gracias compis de aventura por haberla liado hasta cuando no habia como liarla, por celebrar que no estabamos muertos, por pedir otra kilimanjaro, por exprimir cada dia del viaje como si fuera el ultimo. PD. Pues resulta que al final tenemos una foto los cuatro @gdeandresblanco@adigon14@pablo_reke pic by Judit #tanzania#ngorongoro
Durante 8 días, hemos viajado por #Tanzania junto a Mariano López, director de @revista_viajar, y el fotógrafo @tinosoriano. En esta segunda expedición, hemos disfrutado del ecosistema formado por el Parque Nacional #Serengeti , el Área de Conservación de #Ngorongoro , el Lago Manyara y el Parque Nacional de #Tarangire , al norte de Tanzania. Una aventura que apetece repetir.
