Tarangire National Park

Overview

Covering an area of 2850 sq km, Tarangire National Park is a lovely northern circuit park. The huge number of elephant migration and the authentic safari environment make the park more attractive.

Highlights Of The Park

  • The park got its name from the Tarangire River, which is the area’s only source of permanent fresh drinking water during the driest months.
  • The park is a paradise of elephant migration.
  • Tarangire is surprisingly large, giving visitors the quietest game viewing environment of the entire region.
  • The northern part of the park is dominated by the Tarangire River, which flows through the narrow valley until it leaves the north-western part of the park and flows into Lake Burungi.
  • If spotting animals from a close distance without disturbing them is your wish, then walking safari is the best way to explore the wilderness from the biggest to the smallest one.
  • The huge baobab trees, thick acacia shrubs and mixed woodland make Tarangire trip a memorable one.
  • Taking a trip to a Maasai or Barabaig village gives a different experience of learning their traditional culture.

Wildlife

  • The dry months (July to October) offer the best view of the wide varieties of animals when they gathered to drink water from the Tarangire River.
  • The thick vegetation during the wet season generally hides the predators which can’t be seen easily like any other park of the northern circuit.
  • Elephants are the main attraction as well as the other animals seen in abundance are wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, buffalo, Thompson's gazelle, greater and lesser kudu, eland, leopard and cheetah.
  • The tree-climbing pythons and a huge number of elephants make Tarangire a popular safari destination.
  • Dwarf mongoose, oryx and generuk are really interesting but found very rare.

Birdlife

  • Over 550 species of birds are inhabitants of Tarangire National Park.
  • The fluttering wings and chattering voice are common wherever you go in Tarangire.
