Located in the South East side of Lake Manyara overlooking the Rift Valley Wall,Tarangire National Park is nestled between lush prairies of the Masai-Steppe region and the Great Rift-Valley in the northern direction. It offers visitors unique animal sighting opportunities unlike other parks in the region, and a diverse lush landscape.It also provides walking Safaris and night game drives.

Tarangire extends to you a very cordial welcome. We are thrilled to have you here and we appreciate for trusting us. Whether you are visiting here for a day trip or having an overnight, Tarangire has something for everyone.

The park is impressively splendid for its famous concentration of wild animals especially the elephants and it is also one of the finest birding destinations in East Africa.

The name of the park originates from the Tarangire River that crosses the park and covers an area of 2850 km 2.

The presence of Tarangire River contributes to numerous green patches, forests, swamps and granitic ridges. The park also consists of thick dark soils from ancient lake beds as well as deposits of volcanic ash. Some of the most stunning tree and plant species may be found here including the great Boabab tree (also known as the tree of life) and miles and miles of grasslands dotted with acacias and other local foliage. It’s a place for groups of elephants, zebras, wildebeest, kudus, and lions and bird’s species such as hornbills, guinea fowl and crested falcons, moosebirds, bee-eaters and Kori bustards!

slightly off the popular northern Tanzania Safari Circuit, the park lies between the meadows of Masai Steppe to the south east and the lakes of the Great Rift Valley to the north and west. Within the northern part of Tarangire is the permanent River Tarangire also known as the life-line of the park particularly in the dry season when most of the region is totally dry. This flows northwards until it exits the park in the northwestern corner to pour into Lake Burungi. There are a number of wide swamps which dry into green plains during the dry season in the south.

During you Safari in Tarangire, You are highly recommended to stay for a couple of days especially  in the south of the park which offers a less crowded safari experience and gives you the opportunity to enjoy an authentic African feel of the Tanzania’s countryside.
