TANZANIA NORTHERN CIRCUIT
Located 120km from Arusha, Tarangire National Park is the sixth largest park in Tanzania and is a popular stop for wildlife safaris travelling through the Northern Circuit on their way to Ngorongoro and the Serengeti. Most famous for its huge baobab trees, the park’s gentle rolling countryside is dotted with these trees, which seem to dwarf the animals that feed beneath them.

Landscape and Baobabs
Tarangire’s landscape is characterized by expansive grasslands, seasonal swamps, and riverine vegetation. One of the park’s iconic features is the presence of ancient baobab trees that dot the horizon. These massive trees, known as the “upside-down trees,” create an otherworldly atmosphere and provide excellent photo opportunities.
While perhaps not as famous as the Serengeti or Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire National Park boasts a rich array of wildlife. The park is home to large populations of elephants, often considered some of the largest in Africa. During the dry season (June to October), animals gather around the Tarangire River, making it a prime location for game viewing. Lions, leopards, cheetahs, buffalo, giraffes, and various antelope species can also be spotted here.
Tarangire is a paradise for bird enthusiasts, with over 550 bird species documented within the park. The diverse habitats, including swamps, woodlands, and open grasslands, attract a wide range of avian species, from the iconic lilac-breasted roller to raptors like martial eagles.
Compared to some of Tanzania’s more famous parks, Tarangire offers a more tranquil and uncrowded safari experience. This allows visitors to connect with nature on a deeper level and enjoy the serene beauty of the wilderness without the crowds.
Migration of Elephants
One of the park’s highlights is the migration of elephants, which move through Tarangire in search of water and food. Witnessing these majestic creatures in their natural habitat as they traverse the landscape is a captivating sight that showcases the beauty of the animal kingdom.
Tarangire’s ecosystems are carefully conserved to ensure the well-being of its wildlife. The park’s unique features, including its flora and fauna, contribute to the conservation of biodiversity in the region.
