Nyerere National Park is an immense area of protected wilderness that has remained untouched for millions of years. The Nyerere National Park is the biggest national park in Africa, covering a total area of 30,893 km2 (almost 12,000 sq. miles), 3.2% of Tanzania’s land surface. A large area of the reserve is drained by the Rufiji River. There are over 2,000 species of plants, over 430 species of birds, and 60 species of mammals. In 1982 it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the diversity of its wildlife and undisturbed nature. It’s a unique environment rich in water, channels and lakes. Abundant with wildlife and little visited by tourist, compared to northern parks. You can enjoy a variety of activities thanks to the lakes and the Rufiji River.
The Nyerere National Park together with the Selous Game reserve is also the biggest stronghold for wild dogs in Africa and surely one of the places where you would have more chances to spot them.
