Tarangire National Park


Tarangire National Park

Forget about the crowds at the popular Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, and discover Tanzania's hidden gem: the Tarangire National Park. Despite its easy accessibility, Tarangire remains a secret haven, offering some of the best game-viewing experiences in Tanzania.
The park is renowned for its majestic elephant herds and tree-climbing lions, along with all the classic African savannah species and some unique ones, such as the long-necked gerenuk. With over 550 species of bird, Tarangire is also a paradise for bird watchers.

But the real treat is during Tarangire's dry season, from June to October, when the Tarangire River attracts a plethora of animals, including elephants, buffalo, giraffes, and many antelope species. Witness the concentration of wildlife that rivals that of the Ngorongoro Crater but with much fewer crowds.
Tarangire's dense vegetation, made up of open woodlands and thick forests along the river, is also home to leopards and the iconic "upside-down" baobab trees, making it a sight to behold. So, don't miss out on this hidden gem while going on Tanzania Safari Tours.


Tarangire National Park boasts a diverse range of wildlife. It is known for its large herds of elephants, which can be seen congregating around the Tarangire River during the dry season.

Other animals commonly spotted in Tarangire National Park include giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, buffaloes, and various species of antelopes such as impalas, gazelles, and elands. Lions, leopards, and cheetahs also roam the park, as well as hyenas and wild dogs.

Bird enthusiasts can enjoy sightings of over 500 bird species in the park, including the Kori bustard, the heaviest flying bird in the world, and the yellow-collared lovebird.

Tarangire National Park is also home to some unique wildlife, such as the fringe-eared oryx and the gerenuk, which is known for its long neck and ability to stand on its hind legs to reach high branches.

This experience with Serengeti Joy Tours was nothing short of spectacular. Our team was made up of Frank(y) (primary guide), Francis (secondary guide), Shedrack (our chef, Moses (our waiter), and 10 solid porters who worked hard and were delightful to encounter.

Angelica was a pleasure to work with from the beginning. She was attentive to our needs, highly flexible and easy to communicate with. The trip was very well planned especially given our time constraints. The 7 day lemosho hike was a success, reaching Uhuru Peak.

This year I decided to celebrate my birthday by taking a challenge and that was to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. The idea came 6 months back & accordingly I prepared myself. I made my plan in such a way so that I reached the summit on 21st June 2017 (my birthday).
