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 hold's its head up high in the knowledge that it’s home to Tanzania’s highest population of African Elephant.


With four of the Big Five also residing in the park, it’s a great addition to a Serengeti/Ngorongoro centred 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.

Home to one of the largest Elephant populations in the whole of Africa

A bird lovers paradise

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 the people who love to watch them. The park's 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…… to name just a few.


This beautiful park is home to some of the largest Elephant populations in the whole of Africa, with several herds of up to 300 members per herd.

In addition there are large number of Impalas Elands, Buffaloes, Bohor Reedbuck, Coke's Hartebeest, Thompson's Gazelle, as well as the Greater and Lesser Kudu. Other common animals within Tarangire are Leopards, Lions, Hyeenas and Cheetah, which are popular within the Southern open areas.


It is possible to visit Tarangire for a Day Safari from Arusha or to encorperate it in to a longer Norther Circuit Safari including Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara National Parks.
