They include the plains of Serengeti National Park, a safari mecca populated by the “big five” game (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino), and Kilimanjaro National Park, home to Africa’s highest mountain. Offshore lie the tropical islands of Zanzibar, with Arabic influences, and Mafia, with a marine park home to whale sharks and coral reefs.

Forests grow in highland areas where there are high levels of precipitation and no marked dry season. The western and southern plateaus are primarily miombo woodland, consisting of an open cover of trees. In floodplain areas, wooded grassland with a canopy cover of less than one-half has been created by poor drainage and by the practice of burning for agriculture and animal grazing. Similarly, grassland appears where there is a lack of good drainage.

Varieties of honey
In Africa, honey is called 'the mother'. This is the way honey used to be before commercial agriculture, pasteurization, and ultra-filtering. Regeneratively harvested by traditional beekeepers from wild forest bees in wilderness forests.
Tanzanian Light Miombo honey is derived from jubernardia and other subspecies of trees in the legume family that grow in woodland savanna eco regions of central and east Africa. Miombo is vernacular for woodlands growing in southern and central Africa. The tree species that provide nectar are the Brachystegia (miombo), Julbernardia, and/or Isoberlia — all three are part of the legume family. These woodlands are home to innumerable species of flora and fauna, and provide access to a number of human products and services which range from food and medicine to cultural and spiritual needs.
