Tarangire National Park
Tarangire National Park Size: 2,600 sq km (1,005 sq miles).
Location: 118 km (75 miles) Southwest of Arusha.
The park’s permanent water supply ensures a huge and varied animal population, especially during the dry season (January through Mid March and the end of May through September) when it rivals that of the Serengeti.
The animals in the park include large herds of elephants, rhinos, buffalo, and zebras, lesser and greater kudus, elands, also wildebeests, hartebeests, Gerenuks, impalas and fringe-eared Oryx are present.
This beautiful park with its ancient baobab trees is the main refuge for wildlife from the surrounding part of the Great Rift Valley.
It is also an excellent place for bird watching with particularly October to May being the best bird watching months.
Tarangire National Park has some of the highest populations of elephants living anywhere in Tanzania, and its sparse vegetation, strewn with baobab and acacia trees it makes it a beautiful and special location.
