Tanzania, East Africa

East Africa contains one of the wildest, most diverse geographies on the planet. From the snow-covered slopes of Mount Kilamanjaro to the sparkling shores of the spice islands like Zanzibar and Pemba, Tanzania is a land of contrasts. It is also home to one of the most fascinating collections of wild animals, plants, and birds. As a safari destination, it is rivalled only by its close neighbor to the north, Kenya, and Botswana's Okavango Delta.

Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Tarangire is the first in a new series of CD-ROMs focusing on the world's wild places and the creature that live in them. Filmed entirely on location, and specifically for multimedia formats, this CD takes you to the African plains of Tanzania in search of the world's riches collection of primate, animal, and bird populations.

In the Habitats section, interactive maps enable you to explore three of Tanzania's most famous parks, including their various ecological zones and animal populations. The Visual Tour is an extended photo-essay covering more than 75 species. The handy Field Guide provides instant access to information about all the plants, animals, birds, and locations featured on the CD-ROM. Search and export functions give you full access to, and reuse of, more than 60 minutes of video and more than 250 full-screen photographs.

Serengeti National Park, on Tanzania's northern border, is one of largest, unfenced, wildlife preserves in the world and offers a chance to witness millennia-old migrations of wildebeest, zebra, and antelope--just as it was when animals, not man, ruled the planet. To the south east lies the magical Ngorongoro Crater. This stunning World Heritage site provides superlative game viewing in a dramatic setting, and an opportunity to glimpse the severely endangered Black Rhino. A huge elephant population inhabits nearby Tarangire Park. The area is feeling the encroachment of a new highway and heavy poaching, but still affords excellent game viewing in the dry season.

New Media, October 1995

"Dusting off the pith helmet and safari jacket for a brave trek into the deeps of the Dark Continent? No? Well, you can still have a wonderful adventure with Sumeria's Wild Africa. Focusing on three national reserves in Tanzania, the disc offers a treasure trove of information about this breathtaking land, as well as the native plants and animals.

"The interface is elegant, minimal and attractive, cleverly designed to reference African art without mimicking it. The original soundtrack, which ranges from light and vibrant to moody and sophisticated, is based on traditional African melodies that have been modernized - thankfully without a trace of New Age sappiness. A minor criticism: The clinical and unmistakably American narrator's voice distanced me from the experience. An African voice would have taken me a step closer."
