Arusha National Park

Flamingos are common at Momela Lake, though the bird life on these lakes vary seasonally. From October to April the lakes are populated by the water fowls from Europe, and the rest of the year the residents birds grebes, pilchards, eagles and geese dominate the lakes. I even saw the Martial Eagle.

Ngorongoro Crater

Owing to its Soda Lakes, the crater provides a breeding ground for flamingos, crown cranes and other water birds as waders, ducks and herons. It is also a good place to see striking ground bird such as Kori bustard, which is regarded as the world's heaviest flying bird. You are more likely to see ostrich here, as well as migrant storks during the rainy season than any other time. Birds of prey commonly seen in Ngorongoro are the augur buzzard and the foppish long crested eagle.
