Tarangire is the hidden gem of Tanzania’s northern safari circuit. It holds breath-taking views. It offers an authentic bush experience. It is home to a diverse collection of fine wildlife; and with a low number of visitors, it’s quiet and peaceful.
The park consists of a tangle of acacia and mixed woodland, but it’s most known for its rolling hills that support massive and majestic baobab trees. The dominant geographic feature in the park is the Tarangire River.
During the dry season, the concentration of animals around this river is almost as diverse as in the Ngorongoro Crater. Large herds of elephants (sometimes reaching numbers of 100), zebras, wildebeest and oryxes are reliably spotted during this time…as are their predators.
Tarangire National Park contains nine different vegetation zones. Each of these supports its own unique forms of flora and fauna. Diversity lies within Tarangire, as does also a pure region with the promise to deliver on quiet moments of reflection and wonder.
