The Tarangire area has distinct seasons. During the dry season (August to October), concentrations of wildlife in the Tarangire National Park reach stunning levels as migratory herds of Wildebeest, Zebra, Buffalo and Elephant move inside the park in search of water sources.
Tarangire National Park is situated about 120 km southwest of Arusha in northern Tanzania. The name of the park derives from the Tarangire River that runs through the park and drains into lake Burungi.
This Tarangire safari area in Tanzania boasts majestic baobab trees. From this national park, guests can overlook the Great Rift Valley, Ngorongoro highlands and the Lake Manyara region.
Oliver's Camp is located inside the Tarangire National Park on the east side, about 2 hours driving from the main gate and 1 hour from the nearest airstrip (Kuro).
