Tarangire National Park is located slightly off the main safari route. This park in northern Tanzania is most famous for its elephant migration, birding and quiet authentic safari atmosphere. With a game safari viewing area that is roughly ten times the size of nearby Manyara and a concentration of game that is exceptional, this Tanzania big game safari park is a little gem on the Northern safari circuit, especially if you love elephants!
Tarangire is the surprise package on the Northern circuit. Often overshadowed by the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire has immense concentrations of game in the peak months and a fraction of the visitors that go to any of the other Northern parks. The game viewing here is superb and the atmosphere and habitat is completely different from the other parks. The concentration of animals around the Tarangire river is almost as diverse and reliable as in the Ngorongoro Crater.
Elephants are the main attraction with up to 3,000 in the park during the peak season months. Peak season also sees good numbers of wildebeest and zebra as well as giraffe, buffalo, gazelle, kudu, eland, leopard and cheetah. Overall, a superb little park that offers great value and a good option for getting away from it all.
