Welcome to one of the most peaceful National Parks of Tanzania, Tarangire National Park. It is one of the best wildlife destinations in Tanzania. Tarangire has the second-highest concentration of wildlife of any Tanzanian National parks and reportedly has a large number of elephants in the world.
This is the most common activity as it allows you to explore the beauty and authenticity of Tarangire. Dry seasons in June and November are said to be fascinating as elephants can be seen digging in muddy trying to access water. You will also see the largest herds of elephants alongside animals such as lions, kudu, wildebeests, giraffe, fringe-eared Oryx, and tree climbing pythons.
The park is famous for its thick vegetation with acacia shrubs and mixed woodland. You will be able to experience the beautiful, constantly changing backdrop scenery if you choose walking safaris. This type of safari gives you more learning experience about the smaller animals within the park and close-range view of animals without disturbing them. Our Tours packages offer walking safaris with trained/armed ranger guide to ensure you have a lifetime experience.

The abundance of a large batch colorful and exclusive different bird species makes Tarangire among the gifted National Parks. For the bird lovers, it is said to have more than 450 species which are housed at the woodlands, swamps and near Tarangire River.
