Tarangire National Park

~Located in northern Tanzania, close to the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater, the over-2 600km2 Tarangire National Park is an untouched paradise offering an authentic safari experience for those who prefer to avoid the crowds~

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire is an excellent reserve for elephant viewing and the famous baobab trees. The landscape and vegetation is incredibly diverse with a mix that is not found anywhere else in the northern safari circuit.

Background

Especially popular for its large concentration of elephant herds, Tarangire is home to scores of wildlife, including wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, lion, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland. During the dry season, there are prolific sightings of dry-country antelope, especially the fringe-eared oryx and long-necked gerenuk. Avid birdwatchers will be kept entertained by over 500 bird species in the park.

With its thriving ecosystem, the Tarangire National Park is a beautiful blend of vast grassy plains, enormous swamps, myriad majestic baobab trees and the mighty Tarangire River, which splits the park in two, along its course.

 

 

Destination Highlights

Lion are common throughout Tarangire, as are leopard, while cheetah seem to favour the more open areas of the south. Spotted hyena are always around, and while wild dog do sometimes pass through, sightings of them are rare.

The best time to go on safari in Tarangire is towards the end of the dry season (September to November), when animals from the surrounding ecosystem concentrate in large numbers near the Tarangire River, which is the only permanent water source in the area.
