Tanzania boasts the tallest mountain (Kilimanjaro) in Africa, the largest and deepest lakes; Lake Victoria and Tanganyika along with the second deepest lake in the world - Lake Tanganyika. Serengeti National Park hosts the largest migration of wildlife known; around a million wildebeest migrate around the Serengeti ecosystem following the rain.
Tanzania's biodiversity is so great that it ranks among the top ten countries in the world. It is home to 1100 species of breeding birds. This compares with 800 in all of southern Africa.
