Just imagine a herd of elephants walking beside you, against a backdrop of mysterious baobab trees. It doesn’t get more magical than that.
Although often overlooked next to its famous neighbouring parks, Tarangire is a paradise in its own right.
Named after the Tarangire River that runs through the park, the river attracts all manner of wildlife. It is home to all Tanzania’s most iconic wildlife, excluding only the black rhino. Lucky safari goers will also get a chance to see three endangered species that can only be found in this park; the fringe-eared oryx, the greater kudu and the ashy starling.
Tarangire’s most notable inhabitants are however the elephants. The park is home to one of the largest concentration of elephants in Africa, with herds of up to 300 elephants roaming the plains.
Bird watchers will also find joy here with over 450 species of birds to be spotted. In this park, you can enjoy walking safaris, game drives, and visits to neighbouring villages.
