Big five slightly off the popular northern Tanzania Safari Circuit, the park lies between the meadows of Masai Steppe to the south east and the lakes of the Great Rift Valley to the north and west.

This flows northwards until it exits the park in the northwestern corner to pour into Lake Burungi. There are a number of wide swamps which dry into green plains during the dry season in the southern circuity.

Day trip Tarangire national park

Because Tarangire is manly a seasona national park, its wildlife differ depending on the season and also considering that It is part of a bigger ecosystem. The stunning yellow collared lovebirds and the shy starlings are in plenty here in addition to other species. Every year during the dry season from June to November Tarangire hosts a wildlife migration which is not as dramatic as the Wildebeest Migration in the Serengeti, but receives a somewhat large number of animals. As most of this part of the country is dry, the Tarangire River remains the only source of water and consequently attracts large numbers of wildebeests, elephants, gazelles, zebras and hartebeest, buffaloes plus various predators like lions that come to drink and graze around the river bank where survive species to rescue their life.


  • A transfer from the airport can be arranged for an extra cost.
