CNN has launched the second annual Tanzania: the Ultimate Safari Sweepstakes sponsored by the Tanzania Tourist Board.

The winners will enjoy an experience of a lifetime in a country named one of the top safari destinations in Africa. The trip will include a seven days/six nights stay that will take the lucky winners to two of Tanzania’s World Heritage Sites, the famous Serengeti National Park, home to the great animal migration, and the world famous Ngorongoro Crater.

The Ultimate Safari prize includes roundtrip air tickets in economy class for two from any gateway within the continental US, transfers, accommodations, meals and game drives. Entries will be accepted through midnight January 31, 2009 at

The Serengeti National Park, recently named the 7th New Wonder of the World, is one of the World’s last great wildlife refuges. It is in these vast plains that the visitor can witness the annual migration that is one of nature’s most awe-inspiring wonders. More than one million wildebeests as well as hundreds of thousands of zebra and gazelle pursued by hungry predators move in a north/south cycle. Most of the migration, 85%, takes place in the Serengeti from December through July.

The Ngorongoro Crater, often called the Eighth Wonder of the World rises 2,286 m above sea level and is the largest unbroken caldera in the world. It is also unique in that it is the only protected area where the local inhabitants, the Masai herdsmen and their cattle live in harmony with the wildlife and the tourists. Surrounded by very steep walls rising 610 meters from the Caldera floor, this natural amphitheater is about 25 miles in diameter and is home to up to 30,000 animals. The drama unfolds as one drives down from the crater rim to the crater floor. In addition to the many big game, elephant, lion, hippo, it is one of the few places that one can still see the Black Rhino. The winners will also have the opportunity of visiting Olduvai Gorge, also a World Heritage Site and known as the “Cradle of mankind.” It is here where Dr. Louis Leaky and his wife Mary discovered the skull of Nutcracker Man and the remains of Homo Hablis, man’s first step on the ladder of human revolution.

The trip will include one night in Arusha, the safari capital of the North, two nights n Ngorongoro and three nights in the Serengeti, with breakfast, lunch and dinner provided.
