Tarangire National Park

Tarangire is one of the most underrated parks. It is often only visited for day trips because of how close it is to Ngorongoro and Serengeti. It is full of elephants, zebras and lions. It also has some super scenery to go with it. You can also see sights such as the Tarangire River.

Tarangire has the second largest concentration of wildlife in Tanzania after Serengeti and the highest concentration of elephants in the world. It has over 700 lions living there as well as a selection of other animals. These animals include cheetahs, leopards, zebras, wildebeest, hartebeest, elands, oryx, waterbucks, lesser kudus, giraffes and buffaloes.

This park is also known for its big baobabs, which makes this place special. You can see a baobab called Poacher’s Hide. Poacher’s Hide has an internal cave where poachers would hide.


You will be picked up from your accommodation and you will travel to Tarangire National Park. An approximate 3 hour drive you will arrive at the Tarangire National Park. The name of this national park originates from the Tarangire River that crosses the park. This river is also the primary source of freshwater for the animals during the annual dry season in Tanzania. Giant baobab trees, bush savannah and the seasonal marshes add to the wonder of this nature reserve. The Tarangire National Park is considered as one of the best places to view elephants up close. The park is also home to buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are seen now and then but cheetahs are rarely spotted. From the open roof of the safari vehicle you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. In the late afternoon you will have hampered hot bush lunch, then you will leave the park and drive back to the Moshi
