Where Man & Beast Co-exist in Harmony

Approximately 2.5 million years ago, Mount Kilimanjaro had a volcanic rival. What is now the biggest volcanic caldera in the world, was once a volcanic mountain.

There are now roughly 30,000 animals in this area with species such as zebra, buffalo, wildebeest, hyenas and lions in abundance.

Alongside the wildlife, many Maasai families call this place home. Approximately 42,000 Maasai tribes people live here, farming the land and herding cattle, making this the only park where man and beast co-exist in harmony.

This UNESCO world heritage site is not only a beautiful example of Tanzanian landscape, it’s a historical site. The park is home to Olduvai Gorge, where Dr Leaky first discovered human remains so ancient that they proved that the human species originated in Africa.
