Tarangire National Park

Located slightly off the main safari route, Tarangire National Park is a lovely, quiet park in Northern Tanzania. It is most famous for its elephant migration and bird watching.  Many tourists travellers to the region visit only for a matter of hours, or either miss it out Tarangire  completelyaltogether or venture into the park for a matter of hours - leaving swathes of Tarangire the park virtually untouched.

At a glance:

- During the dry season ( August to October), the park attracts one of the highest concentrations of wildlife animals in Tanzania. Sightings include large numbers of wildebeest and zebra as well as giraffe, buffalo, Thompson's gazelle, greater and lesser kudu, eland, leopard and cheetah.  The real prize is seeing the dwarf mongoose, oryx or generuk – although sightings are rare.

-Safari activities centre on game drives featuring excellent landscapes views of beautiful riverine forests, acacia woodlands, ancient African baobab trees and, endless rolling hills

- Herds of up to 3,000 elephants can be seen during the peak season - one of the largest concentrations of elephants in Africa.

- Tarangire is also one of Tanzania's finest birding destinations, with over 500 species found here, including large flocks of beautiful yellow-collared lovebirds.
