The Ngorongoro Conservation Area was officially declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1979. The area consists of dense mountain forests, woodlands, grasslands, lakes and swamps. Some of the most important archeological sites in the world, such as Oldupai Gorge and Laetoli, can be found in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Archeologists found evidence showing that the area was occupied by hominids over 3 million years ago and thus claiming that it could be the birthplace of mankind.
Lake Manyara National Park is one of the smaller national parks in Tanzania. Still, the park is home to an interesting collection of wildlife. Manyara park also features a variety of beautiful landscapes. The lake itself is a soda lake/alkaline lake and reaches a maximum depth of 3.7 m. The vegetation changes from ground water forests to flood plains and finally to acacia wood plains.
