Tarangire National Park

Tanzania

Covering an area of approximately 2,600 sq km, this park has a particularly high concentration of wildlife. In the dry season, herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river beds searching for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It’s the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem – a smorgasbord for predators – and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the fringe-eared Oryx and long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed.

The park is also an ornithologist’s paradise with more than 300 species of birds, including the largest bird in the world, the ostrich, and the heaviest bird that can fly, the Kori Bustard.
