Often described as Tanzania’s most underrated National Park, Tarangire is one of Africa’s lesser known gems and a must for any Northern Circuit Itinerary.
Boasting an array of wildlife as diverse as its landscape, Tarangire can also hold it’s head up high in the knowledge that it’s home to Tanzania’s highest population of African Elephant.
With 4 of the Big 5 also residing in the park, it’s a great addition to a Serengeti/Ngorongoro centered itinerary. Named after the Tarangire River, which runs through it, the park is an excellent choice during the drier months when animals are forced to move closer and closer to the river in search of water.
With the exception of the critically endangered Black Rhino, Tarangire is home to all of Tanzania’s iconic animals.
With its wide variety of habitats and food sources, Tarangire National Park is a popular destination for birds and people who love to watch them. The parks woodlands are home to Hoopoes, Hornbills, Brown Parrots and the Yellow Necked Spurfow, as well as birds like the Yellow-Collared Love Birds, Mouse Birds, Bee Eaters, Crested Francolin, Steppe Eagles and the Gigantic Lappet-Faced Vulture…… Just to name a few.
