Chaka Adventures - Destinations and Attractions

Tanzania attractions and destinations is one of the most diverse and enchanting countries in the world. Exotic combinations of landscapes, people, history and culture offer the traveller a unique and inspiring experience. There is the snow-capped summit of Mount Kilimanjaro and the sun-kissed beaches of Zanzibar, the vast herds of game grazing on the Serengeti plains and the slow volcanic eruption of Ol Donyo Lengai. With so much natural wealth, it?s no wonder that Tanzania has something for everyone.

Vwaza Marsh Game Reserve

Vwaza Marsh Game Reserve sees very few visitors , despite its easy access, inexpensive accommodation and rich diversity of animals and birds. It lies southwest of the Nyika Plateau, to the north of the floodplains of South Rukuru River and covers an area of 1,000 km?.

Hippos

Road conditions are poor particularly in the raining season when a 4x4 vehicle is essential. The terrain is generally flat and the dominant vegetation type is mixed brachystegia and mopane woodland.

The populations of large animals vary from season to season as they cross the border from and to Zambia’s Luangwa Game reserve. The reserve houses large herds of buffalo and elephants, and a great variety of antelope are present, including roan, greater kudu, Liechtenstein’s hartebeest, eland and impala.

The birdlife include Goliath Herons, Openbill Storks, many birds of prey and the rare White-winged Starling. Lake Kazuni supports a good population of hippo and elephants can often be seen around the lake. Walking is permitted in this area (accompanied by a game scout).

A vast amount of wildlife can be seen around Kazuni camp and the lake, a truly spectacular sight.
