Located in northern Tanzania, close to the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater, the over-2 600km2 Tarangire National Park is an untouched paradise offering an authentic safari experience for those who prefer to avoid the crowds.

Especially popular for its large concentration of elephant herds, Tarangire is home to scores of wildlife, including wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, lion, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland. During the dry season, there are prolific sightings of dry-country antelope, especially the fringe-eared oryx and long-necked gerenuk. Avid birdwatchers will be kept entertained by over 500 bird species in the park.

With its thriving ecosystem, the Tarangire National Park is a beautiful blend of vast grassy plains, enormous swamps, myriad majestic baobab trees and the mighty Tarangire River, which splits the park in two, along its course.
