Tarangire National Park Tanzania
Tarangire National Park is a Tanzania Wildlife Safari destination to adventure while you are on a Tanzania Tour in the Jungles of Tanzania adventure trips. Tarangire National Park is located along the Tarangire river, to the south of Lake Manyara. During the dry season, from August to October, Tarangire has one of the highest concentrations of wildlife than any other African national park.
Species. Tarangire features herds of zebras, wildebeests, hartebeests, and elephants. The bird population here records about 300 different species.
Activities. Day and night game viewing can be organized. Birding is recommended between October and May
A captivating vast number of baobabs welcome you as you enter Tarangire National Park. The gently rolling countryside is dotted with these majestic trees, which seem to dwarf the animals that feed beneath them.
It is located 120 km from Arusha, bordered by the Tarangire Wildlife conservation area to the northeast. To cater to the local people’s needs, the Tanzanian Government set part of this land aside as a grazing ground for their herds.
Tarangire River although dominated by huge baobab trees and old doum palm trees is characterized by dense vegetation of acacia and mixed woodland in the area around to a lesser prominence, as well as black cotton grass.
Though it is not as famous as other parks in the north, Tarangire offers the same attractions similar to those of the other parks in the north. Its unique aspect is the annual animal immigration that takes place during the dry season.
Tarangire National Park though not so secular as the Serengeti becomes its opposite in the dry season. This is because Serengeti game wildlife migrates away from the park during the dry season (June-October) then animals migrate to the Tarangire Park from the Masai steppe during the same season.
Some migrate to this place to search for water on the river while predators come to search for prey. So it is during this dry season that the park proclaims the highest concentration of animals than any other park in Northern Tanzania.
However, not all animals are migratory. Other animals such as giraffes, elands, impala, lesser kudu, gazelles, waterbucks, and sometimes rhinos or even perhaps leopards are present throughout the year. Nevertheless, the giant pythons and large herds of elephants attract more people. The park is also famous for migrant birds.
