Tarangire Safari | Safari Tour Packages
Tarangire National Park provides the best safari tour packages to see the classic animals, sparse vegetation to elephant herds, and mini-wildlife migration that takes place during the dry season.
Tarangire National Park covers a total area of 2583 square kilometers and is most popular for its large elephant herds and mini-wildlife migration that takes place during the dry season. The home to all classic African wildlife and its sparse vegetation, strewn with baobab and acacia trees, makes it a beautiful and distinctive location to visit plus a few unusual ones – such as the long-necked gerenuk.
An easy drive of 118 km (75 miles) southwest of Arusha and can continue to Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, and the Serengeti National Park.
When To Go
- June to October (the dry season): Tarangire hosts a wildlife migration that is not as dramatic as the Wildebeest Migration in the Serengeti but receives a somewhat large number of animals
- November to May (The wetter months): Visitors are fewer and the local wildlife more dispersed, with water easily found around the park
Tarangire Attractions To See
There are large numbers of impalas, elands, buffaloes, giraffes, reedbuck, Coke’s hartebeest, Thompson’s gazelle, and the greater and lesser kudu On rare occasions, the unusual gerenuk and fringe-eared Oryx are also seen.
You will obviously see significant numbers of elephants gather here as well as the wildebeests and zebras. Among the other common animals are the leopards, lions, hyenas, and cheetahs that seem to be popular within the southern open areas. The wild dogs are only seen once in a while
Tarangire pythons climb trees, as do its lions and leopards, lounging in the branches where the fruit of the sausage tree disguises the twitch of a tail.
The birds within the Tarangire are also quite many, there are over 550 species that have been identified here. The stunning yellow collared lovebirds and the shy starlings are in plenty here in addition to other species.
On drier ground, you find the Kori bustard, the heaviest flying bird; the stocking-thighed ostrich, the world’s largest bird; and small parties of ground hornbills blustering like turkeys.
Tarangire vegetation is much greener especially with lots of elephant grass, vast areas with mixed acacia woodlands, and some of the wonderful ribbons of the aquatic forest not to forget the giant baobab tree that can live up to 600 years storing between 300 and 900 liters of water
There are a number of wide swamps which dry into green plains during the dry season in the south.
Tarangire River remains the only source of water and consequently attracts large numbers of wildebeests, elephants, gazelles, zebras and hartebeest, buffaloes plus various predators like lions that come to drink and graze around the river banks.
This flows northwards until it exits the park in the northwestern corner to pour into Lake Burunge.
