Tarangire National Park, Tanzania’s 6th largest, is best known for its proliferation of elephants. Large family groups wander majestically through the baobab-dotted landscape that is so characteristic of Tarangire. The park is dissected by the Tarangire River which is the only source of water in the area during the dry season between June and September. During this period, thousands of animals migrate to Tarangire from Manyara National Park giving it the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem.
Herds of Elephants under the Baobab Trees
Tarangire is also famous for its tree-climbing lion. Other wildlife of interest includes dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared oryx and the long-necked gerenuk.
Around 550 bird varieties can be found in Tarangire National Park. In drier areas, you may see ostriches and Kori bustards, while focused around the swamps are flocks of colorful yellow-collared lovebird, the Rufus-tailed weaver, and the ashy starling – all endemic to the dry savanna of north-central Tanzania.
