The western boundary of Tarangire is very different in character from the park and the lands to the east in Lokisale

The western boundary of Tarangire is very different in character from the park and the lands to the east in Lokisale. In amongst the hunting blocks and community village areas, there are a few sanctuaries where some smaller mid range camps still flourish, on the back of relatively easy access to the main entrance gate in the north.

Traditionally this was an important migratory route and green season dispersal area for game, between Tarangire National Park and both Lake Manyara and the Natron area to its north, but with overgrazing & increased farming activity, these routes are nowadays becoming less tenable. Lake Burunge into which the Tarangire river flows is worth a mention as a pretty area with some great birding.

Just west of the park boundary and increasingly sandwiched between that and the communities to its west, there are some mid range camps which are a decent option to consider, with direct access to the park itself (at least in one direction) now allowed through the Sangaiwe gate.

South of here is pretty but, outside the Park is essentially wall to wall cultivation whilst to the north AWF and others are working with local Maasai to rehabilitate Manyara ranch, which runs to the shores of Lake Manyara itself.
