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!
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.
