Tarangire National Park is one of the best-kept secrets of the northern safari circuit in Tanzania.   The park is renowned for its very diverse bird population and wonderful panoramas of wide savannah grasslands dotted with open acacia woodland, studded with large baobab trees.

 The park has distinct seasons which offer different experiences from the lush green season with large amounts of new born animals and as many as 550 different bird species to the dry and dust dry seasons when animals are forced to congregate around dwindling lagoons and the Tarangire River. 

Large herds of elephant up to 300 at a time are not uncommon in the park especially in the dry season this together with large herds of wildebeest and buffalo make this park rather special.  The sheer volumes and species of animals in the park make it have the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem.

Guest Testimonial

My wife, Cindy, and I travelled with A&K this September. Saying that we were “very satisfied” would be an understatement. I did not feel that the survey I received provided a way for me to say how satisfied we are and to commend some individuals.
