The majority of the park’s vegetation is composed of enormous African baobab trees, smatterings of Acacia forest, and a significant marsh zone in the south.
Wild animals utilize the Tarangire River and the wetland as a camp for refugees during the dry season.

Ngorongoro Crater, known as the Eden of Africa, was formed by internal processes around a million years ago. The eruption left behind a huge caldera that was mistakenly referred to as a crater. A yearly flow of water from the highlands of Ngorongoro and adequate feed sustain a wider diversity of animals, including herds of wildebeest, zebra, elephant, hippos, buffalo, topi, eland, and the rare black rhino.
In this stunning crater, predators such as hyenas, lions, cheetahs, jackals, and the mysterious leopard reside in large numbers and are difficult to notice without a trained eye. From aquatic to forest species, there are many different types of birds. With any luck, the so-called Big Five can be seen within a single day of game drives.
Along with other critters, the Crater is home to a wider range of bird species, both terrestrial and aquatic. The hippo pool and a big but shallow alkaline lake, which are frequently frequented by flamingo and hippos flocks, are located in the southwest corner of the crater.
