The Tarangire National Park is the sixth largest national park in Tanzania and is located in the Manyara Region. The name of the park comes from the Tarangire river that passes through the park, being the only source of water for wild animals during dry seasons. During the dry season, thousands of animals migrate to the Tarangire National Park from the Manyara National Park.

The park is famous for its huge number of elephants, baobab trees and tree climbing lions. Visitors to the park can expect to see large numbers of zebra and wildebeest, in addition to the less common animals. Other common animals include buffaloes, impalas, gazelles, hartebeest, elands, waterbuck, giraffes and olive baboons. The Tarangire has the largest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem, including a large number of predators. The swamps have been destinations to the the largest selection of breeding birds compared to any other around the world.

You will depart at around 8am from Moshi (or we can pick you up from your hotel in Arusha) and you will return at around 6pm. The price includes a lunch box.
