About Tarangire



Tarangire National Park is located in northern Tanzania, 120 km southwest of Arusha. The park is named after the Tarangire River that runs through the center of the park from south to northwest and drains into lake Burungi.

Tarangire offers phenomenal birding and game viewing, with the park being well known for its large concentration of elephants. Also, wildebeest, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland make it the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti eco-system.

This absolute gem of a park is famous for its Baobab trees which are scattered throughout. It’s a strong, rolling wilderness that over the last hundred years has earned the respect of the bush-wise, first as a hunting ground, and more recently as a vital wildlife sanctuary in Tanzania’s Great Rift Valley. Pristine bush, extensive wetlands, and permanent rivers attract masses of game into the national park’s 2600 sq kms.

Tarangire National Park is one of Tanzania's smallest parks, but nevertheless it boasts an impressive array of wildlife, and forms part of the vast Maasai Steppes area.

It's a year-round park with very distinct seasons offering very different experiences. The dry season (from July to early Oct) is when thousands of animals congregate around the Tarangire river as the park's other water sources dry up. There are short rains in November and December which leave the park lush, green and full of life.
