With a staggering size of 30,893km2, this is Africa’s largest national park. The Nyerere National Park is graced by the Rufiji River, abundant wildlife, including the Big Five, and scenic landscapes. In addition to hosting large concentrations of elephants, buffalos, hippos, and crocodiles, it is also home to a vast variety of other game, including zebras, giraffes, and rare species of antelopes. A large variety of birds, including the kingfisher, can be found in the sandbanks off the oxbow lakes and channels of the Nyerere National Park. The rainfall in this reservoir is bimodal with two rainy seasons, one from March through the end of May and the other during the months of November and December.
