Highlights and main attractions of tarangire national park
Whilst it may not enjoy the infamy of the Serengeti, Tarangire National Park offers its visitors a promise of wilderness adventure, away from some of the busier areas of the ‘Northern Circuit’ of Tanzania. Well-known for its congregating herds of elephant, the park is comprised mainly of arid, open plains filled with more vegetation than the Serengeti, including baobab trees and acacia, with a network of swamps dominating the land to the south.
Highly seasonal, it is a place that provides a dry season retreat for countless game from the southern Masailand, which tends to concentrate around the river systems during the drier months between June and October and leave again from November to May. For this reason, Tarangire is a great park to enjoy if you are planning your safari during the drier months.
