Protection of wildlife and nature is on record level

About 250,000km² of the state area is dedicated to the protection of nature and wildlife. About 40% of the country is protected as National Parks, Game and Forest Reserves, and Marine Parks. The National Parks and Game Reserves alone, take up 16% of the country’s total land area; making Tanzania the leader in conservation on the entire African continent. The National Parks are financed by economic aid, donations and foreign support, like the successors of Bernhard Grzimek, the founding father of the Serengeti National Park. Since 1995, Tanzania established it’s first maritime National Park with the Mafia Island Marine Park.

Regions like the Ngorongoro Crater are distinguished as Conservation Areas. The Maasai are allowed to live in these areas in harmony with the highly protected wild animals. Only game hunting is permitted in the Game Reserves where there is no human habitation. Uganda safaris These areas are mostly reserved for hunting which brings in much-needed revenue to support the country’s wildlife conservation policies. To hunt in the Game Controlled Areas it is necessary to buy a game licence. Forest Reserves are mountain forests that are protected against logging and are maintained for water conservation measures.
