Tarangire National Park



Tarangire is particularly worth visiting in the dry season when the Tarangire River is one of the few sources of permanent water in the area

Tarangire is particularly worth visiting in the dry season when the Tarangire River is one of the few sources of permanent water in the area. Consequently, it attracts large numbers of animals (most notably elephant, wildebeest and zebra) from the surrounding Maasia Steppe. Read more about the best time to visit Tanzania.

Like the Serengeti National Park, Tarangire should really be viewed in the context of the full ecosystem of which it is only a small part. The system extends out of Tarangire, south and east into the Maasai steppe, and this vast area acts as a dispersal area for much of the game during the rainy season.

The experience you'll have of Tarangire depends very much on which part of the park you visit.  Northern Tarangire is great for game, but you do need to be prepared for a high volume of traffic, while Southern Tarangire - the area below Kuro - is our favourite bit, quieter and visited by fewer tourists.  Tarangire's western boundary and Lokisale on the east of the park also offer a slightly different take on the main park.

A few of our favourite places to stay:

A secluded camp site in the Serengeti, not another soul around
