Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is the sixth-largest national park in Tanzania, with 2,600 sq. The park’s name originates from the Tarangire river that crosses through the park, being the only water source for wild animals during dry seasons.

The park is famous for its considerable number of Elephants, Baobab trees and Pythons. The park offers views of grass and floodplains with impressive baobab and flat-topped acacia trees scattered throughout.  Along the banks of the Tarangire river, you will find herds of Wildebeest and Zebra, followed by Grant’s Gazelle, Thomson’s Gazelle and many others. Creep around in the background lion, and leopard keep a watchful eye on a possible meal. During the dry season, thousands of animals migrate to the Tarangire National Park from Manyara National Park.
