Destination Details

Tarangire, Tanzania

Named after the river that flows through the park, Tarangire National Park is one of the lesser known Tanzanian national parks, giving it a real air of undiscovered Africa. During the dry season, thousands of animals migrate to Tarangire National Park from Manyara National Park.

Famous for its tree climbing pythons, massive baobabs and large herds of elephants, Tarangire National Park is small but still home to a significant wildlife population, with a density of wildlife matched only by Ngorongoro. Birding is particularly good here; the swamps, tinged green year round, are the focus for 550 bird varieties; the most breeding species in one habitat

Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebras, buffalos, impalas, gazelles, hartebeest, and elands crowd the shrinking lagoons. It's the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem - a smorgasbord for predators – and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed.
