Tanzania has a long history of animal habitation and outstanding natural beauty. It is famous for its large scale migratory herds of wildbeest and zebra which has the reputation as one of the magnificent natural wonders of the world. Serengeti National Park is the largest park in Tanzania, approximately 14.763 square kilometres.
In recent years in Africa, elephants are especially threaten by the shrinking living spaces avaliable to them. Their natural habitat has been eradicated by humans and their numbers are decreasing.
The Maasai are a tribe of people who live in parts of Tanzania and Kenya. Most Maasai speak Swahili, the lingua franca of East Africa. They can be recognised by a special red cloth they wear called a Shuka. Maasai people live a nomadic life, which means they move from place to place with their animals. Nowadays, Maasai people face a range of problems which profoundly affect their lives. Growing urbanisation threatens the grazing grounds for their cattle. Secondly climate change is affecting weather patterns and this diminishes the water supply.
