Tarangire is home to Tanzania’s largest population of elephants – so if these gentle giants are amongst your favourite animals, then a safari to Tarangire is a must!
A cheetah family - Serengeti National Park
Tarangire National Park is named after the river that runs through it which quenches the thirst of a large variety of animals, including giraffes, waterbucks, wildebeests, zebras and a high density of elephants.
Tarangire is home to over 550 species of birds, including the kori bustard, ostrich and several varieties of weavers and is a bird watchers dream destination. Its unique hilly landscape is dotted with the iconic African baobab trees and diverse grasses.
Like nearby Lake Manyara, Tarangire National Park is a perfect beginning to a longer safari to the Serengeti or an ideal place to visit on a shorter safari holiday.
Tarangire offers some exceptional places to stay inside the national park as well as close by. We love watching the elephants in the Tarangire River from Tarangire Safari Lodge.
