Tarangire National Park
Long considered a pleasant addition to the legendary northern parks of Tanzania, Tarangire is now coming into its own as an exceptional wildlife destination. Nothing has changed in the park itself. The elephants and baobabs still dominate the landscape and the Tarangire River still provides a haven for wildlife during the dry season
- what has changed is the perception of safari travellers who are now discovering the abundance and scenic splendour of the region.
The seasonal changes in the park are dramatic and the sense of place in Tarangire is something that has to be personally experienced to be fully understood. Termite mounds add an ancient feel to this vast landscape often dwarfing the elephants that roam there.
Tarangire is a must for the African safari aficionados.
When to go to Tarangire
The best time to travel to Tarangire is during the dry season when animals concentrate around the permanent water sources such as the Tarangire River. The roads in the wet season can become impassable.
How to get to Tarangire National Park
Tarangire is usually part of a safari in the northern parks of Tanzania. A relatively short drive from Arusha gets you to the park.
