Located a mere 110 km from Arusha, the expansive Tarangire National Park covers an impressive 2,600 km². Central to its allure is the Tarangire River, a picturesque water source that sustains thousands of wildlife during the dry season.

Tarangire is renowned for its colossal elephant herds which can be seen in the hundreds during the dry season. During the dry season vast herds of animals such as wildebeests, zebras, and lions migrate into the park in search of water forming a smaller-scale but captivating wildlife migration reminiscent of the Serengeti migration.

Beyond its wildlife sanctuary, Tarangire boasts ancient baobab trees, delights bird enthusiasts, and introduces visitors to unique creatures like dwarf mongooses. Whether in a day or night game drive or a walking tour, Tarangire promises a symphony of nature’s wonders and unforgettable encounters.
