Tarangire National Park is quickly becoming as Iconic as its close neighbours Serengeti and Ngorongoro and provides a perfect African Safari.
Tarangire National Park
Tarangire is quite possibly the most underrated wildlife reserve in Africa. Living in the shadows of Tanzania's iconic safari destinations Tarangire is suffering an identity crisis. Here is some of the wildest and scenically most beautiful country in Africa and yet it is not well known as a safari destination because of the popularity of the nearby Ngorongro and Serengeti.
'I woke to the first light sifting thought the front of the room and as I lay in my bed I could see over the vast wilderness of Tarangire, a magnificent, and yet unheralded, wildlife haven'.
Tarangire National Park has all the major wildlife species of Tanzania in profusion but it is the landscapes that are the true soul of the park. The landscapes of hills, rivers and valleys are dotted with graceful baobab trees. Tarangire is also referred to as the land of the giants because of the dominance of elephants and baobabs in the park.
A major attraction of Tarangire stems from its relative obscurity as the park is not nearly as crowded as the other northern parks of Tanzania. Tarangire National Park often becomes a firm favourite of many visitors.
- Pristine environment - One of the least utilised parks of Tanzania makes it the ideal safari destination
- Land of Giants - Elephant and Baobabs go hand in hand in Tarangire
- Close proximity to other reserves - Tarangire can be combined with the iconic reserves of Manyara, Ngorongoro and Serengeti
