Tanzania National Parks & Game Reserves Guidelines
RULES AND REGULATIONS OF NATIONAL PARKS & RESERVE IN TANZANIA.
East Africa is one of the last great ecosystems in the world, National Parks and Reserves & other faunal areas faces many threats for its survival. The most serious are poaching and the ever increasing demand for land to feed a large and growing human population that borders the park. Your behaviour can be as damaging as that of a poacher’s snare. Driving off road where it is not allowed damages the fragile soils and plants of the Serengeti, and can disturb species such as cheetah during critical breeding periods. You can help to preserve the Serengeti and its spectacular wildlife by respecting our rules and regulations, so that in the words of a famous patron - ``National Parks and Reserves& other faunal areas Shall Not Die.”
