Tarangire: "The largest concentration of elephants in the world".

Tarangire National Park, home of the elephant'. You can read this just before you enter the park. We would add the baobab to that! But the main attraction of this beautiful national park is indeed the unparalleled number of elephants. A must for your safari!

Tarangire, home of the elephant'. 

You can read this just before you enter the park. We would add the baobab to that! But the main attraction of this beautiful park is indeed the unrivalled number of elephants. It is not unusual to see about a hundred elephants in one view, and to cross up to 500 elephants in a few hours! In addition, you will find an enormous diversity of savannah animals in this park, which in the dry season can compete in numbers with the densities in the Serengeti! 

Tarangire National Park: "The largest concentration of elephants in the world".

Lion, leopard & cheetah are often seen in this park. In addition, there are large numbers of zebra, gazelle, buffalo, giraffe, wildebeest, baboon, impala, waterbuck, warthog as well as dozens of lesser-known savannah dwellers. With a species list of over 400, this park is an absolute highlight for bird lovers. For those looking for added value, a stay of several days in the sparsely visited south of the park is recommended. Here, you have a good chance of seeing a number of unique animals that you won't find anywhere else in the Northern safari circuit, such as the Gerenuk, the Oryx and sometimes the very rare wild dog. 

Tarangire is easily accessible in a 3-hour drive from Arusha. The park can be visited all year round, but the number of animals around the central Tarangire River peaks during the long dry season from July to October, with a second peak from mid-December to mid-March. Bird lovers are best served from November to February due to the presence of numerous migratory birds. But a visit at other times is also worthwhile due to the relatively large number of animals that reside in the park throughout the year. Moreover, in our opinion, the unique landscape with its beautiful hills dotted with baobab trees should be enough to justify a visit. Contact our travel experts to plan a visit to Tarangire's numerous attractions in your itinerary.

Tarangire Safari Wild Tanzania

Where to stay in Tarangire?

Many guests stay outside the National Park, the main reason being to save time and reduce costs. If possible, however, we always try to convince guests to sleep in the park. The park is enormously underestimated. At night, it is teeming with life. Elephants, lions, hyenas roam the park at night.

Where can you stay?

  • Adventure: Tarangire Public Campsite (camping with your own tents in the park), we provide a private cook.
  • Midrange: Tarangire Safari Lodge, Baobab Tented Camp
  • Luxury: Nomad Kuro, Asilia Oliver's Camp, Nasikia Ndovu Camp
  • Just outside the park (but still with wildlife): Maramboi, Burunge


Serengeti stands for endless plains. On these grassy plains, with an area larger than Flanders, you will not only find the 1.5 million wildebeest and zebra that make up the migration. There are also unrivalled numbers of lions, leopards and cheetahs.
