Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is located 118 kilometers (75 miles) southwest of Arusha Town. The dry season is a spectacular time to visit Tarangire, the day after day of cloudless skies seem to suck all the moisture from the landscape, turning the waving grasses to platinum blonde, brittle as straw and it is at this time of the year when the thirsty elephants and antelopes marching hundreds of kilometers to Tarangire river, a mere permanent water source that flows across the length of the park chocked with wildlife..

In search of underground springs, herds of three hundred African elephants dig in the damp earth of the riverbed while wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, and gazelle mingle with a rare species such as eland and Oryx around each shrinking lagoon.

Pythons climb into shade of the trees that line Tarangire’s massive southern swamps and hang there like giant malignant fruit coils neatly arranged over the branches in a perfect sphere. it is during the dry season when Tarangire enjoys the greatest concentration of wildlife ever present to fascinate visitors with their grace, intelligence and majesty.
