Tarangire National Park is named after the Tarangire river, which is perennial water source which guarantees supply throughout the year. The park boasts one of the heaviest concentrations of elephants in Tanzania. On game drive circuits along the river, visitors often encounter herds of elephant as they move to and from the water. This offers our clients spectacular views of the herds as they socialize and interact.
Apart from elephants, the river sustains a large variety of herbivores including buffalo, wildebeest, zebras, and several gazelle species. The park is also home to a substantial population of predators including lions, leopards, cheetahs and hyenas. It encompasses 2900 square kilometers of unique landscape dominated by mammoth, hard-wearing baobab trees which have become iconic of the park.
