Tarangire National Park - Safaris, Wildlife & Camps

Tanzania - Tarangire 2

Arguably northern Tanzania's most interesting park, yet one of the least visited, Tarangire is justly famed for attracting large herds of elephant and zebra.

It is overlooked by a dramatic escarpment ascending to the Ngorongoro Crater. Lying in the heart of Masaai country, it makes a fabulous introduction to Tanzania’s diverse peoples, landscapes, wildlife and ancient towering baobab trees that leave you in awe with its strange and unusual beauty.
