    Hunting in Tanzania, First Professional Hunters

    The first professional hunters came in 1913. They found the wildlife plentiful, especially the lions, but saw no elephants. Seven years later, an American arrived in a strange new contraption known as a Ford motor-car and news of the wonders of the Serengeti had reached the outside world. Because the Hunting of lions made them so scarce (they were considered 'vermin'), it was decided to make a partial Game Reserve in the area in 1921 and a full one in 1929. With the growing awareness of the need for conservation, it was expanded and upgraded to a National Park in 1951. Eight years later the Ngorongoro Conservation Area was established in the south-east as a separate unit.

    Attached is a copy of an extract from Arusha (Brochure of the Northern Province & Its' Capital Town) dated 1929 - The Hunter's Paradise

    Look also at some of the vintage safari and African tribal pictures that I posted in the photo gallery.
