Tarangire National Park

Tanzania

Scenic beauty and diverse wildlife

Tarangire National Park is a unique and notable tourist destination in Tanzania, known for its diverse wildlife, scenic beauty, and cultural significance. The Park is famous for its large elephant herds, with over 3,000 elephants concentrated in the park during the dry season. This concentration is due to the Tarangire River, which provides a reliable water source for the animals during the dry months.

The park is part of the northern Tanzania safari circuit known for its mini-wildlife migration. During the dry season, thousands of animals, including wildebeests, zebras, and buffaloes, migrate to the park from the surrounding wet-season dispersal and calving areas.

The park is home to the Maasai people, who have a long history of inhabiting and managing the land. Visitors can engage with Maasai culture through activities like cultural dance performances and learning about their traditional way of life.

The park offers a range of accommodation options, from luxury lodges to camping sites. Visitors can enjoy various activities such as game drives, night drives, birdwatching, and hiking.
