It all happened last Sunday in the tourism capital of Tanzania the magnificent Arusha. All eyes where in Arusha where the official naming of the new Seven Natural Wonders of Africa were declared.
Tanzania had three entries which were Mountain Kilimanjaro, Serengeti Migration and Ngorongoro Crater. Believe it or not among the twelve entries from all over Africa, Tanzania won three places from its three entries. I remember how I took take and campaigned for this to happen, and here I am so proud. Infact very happy considering this took place in Tanzania and yet Tanzania won it big!
I was not in Arusha but I new what was happening and I decided to gather worthy reading news from a site that I follow; allAfrica . Am certain that they won't mind for me giving just a bit from the story here:
Tanzania: Moment of Glory for Tanzania
BY MARC NKWAME AND ROSE ATHUMANI
Arusha — SERENGETI National Park was declared the best of the seven New Natural Wonders of Africa as all the three entries from Tanzania made it to the coveted seven.
Announcing the new 'Seven Wonders' of nature here, the President and Founder of the Texas (US)-based 'New Seven Wonders,' Dr Philip Imler, revealed that though the seven wonders are not ranked in positions, Serengeti stood out due to its legendary, spellbinding largest migration of large mammals.
Ngorongoro Crater, found within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority, and described as 'The Bowl' in which a variety of wildlife live,' was also voted among the Seven Wonders of Nature while Mount Kilimanjaro, which is Africa's highest mountain, became the third entry from the country.
