Tarangire is a wonderful national park in Tanzania's northern circuit that is home to savanna woodlands, seasonal flood plains, wetlands and magnificent baobabs. This is the national park with the highest concentration of elephants in Northern Tanzania.

Size: 2,850 sq km (90km from south to north)

Location: 114km from Arusha town – approximately 2-3 hrs drive depending on road conditions. Tarangire National Park is only a short drive (approximately 30km) from Lake Manyara national park and the Ngorongoro Crater – making this an ideal inclusion in your Tanzanian Northern Circuit safari itinerary.

Weather: Dry season generally runs June to October and wet season November to May. The small rainy season runs December – February. March to April is the highest rainfall generally recorded and the lowest is generally July to September.

Highlights:

  • Large herds of elephants
  • Gigantic baobab trees
  • Tarangire River has water year round attracting great numbers during dry season
  • Nearly all mammals from the East African plains can be found here
  • Potential to spot Lesser Kudu and Wild dogs
  • All five predators are present in the national park in decent numbers.


Interesting facts:

  • It is believed that the reason Tarangire National park has such a diverse environment is due to the Tsetse Fly. Due to the presence of these flies and their impact on livestock, the Masai didn't bring their livestock into this area in large numbers which meant human impact on these lands were minimal over the years.


  • Estimates suggest that many of the baobab trees found in Tarangire National Park are more than 2,000 years old!


Accommodation options:

Lodges and mobile camps within the park as well as those on the outskirts. Please note that many lodges and camps in this region close down during rainy season as roads can often be inaccessible.
