Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is best known for its distinctive looking baobab trees and massive elephant herds of up to 300 individuals in the dry season. The park comes into its prime during the dry season from June to October when all water sources in the outlying areas have dried up and the wildlife concentrate around the ever shrinking Tarangire River. It is not unusual to see zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, eland, hartebeest, gazelle, impala and even the fringe-eared oryx gathered around the water holes in the height of the dry season. It has been said that during this season, the wildlife concentration in Tarangire rivals that of the Serengeti.

Things to do: Game drives, walking safaris, night game drives and cultural tours are offered outside the boundaries of the national park but within the Tarangire ecosystem.
