Tarangire National Park
Tarangire National Park is probably the least visited of the northern Tanzania game parks, and retains real air of undiscovered Africa, particularly in the south of the park. Much of the park is grassland together with swamplands and flood plains, which feed the Tarangire River.
Tarangire in Northern Tanzania is a park that remains calm and quiet and is a good park for a day visit. It is a superb little park that offers great value compared to its high rated neighbors such as the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro. The breathtaking scenic beauty that is displayed with the acacia woodland, open bush and groves of palm trees are superb to enjoy. Most amazingly you would find some of the trees aged to be more than 100 years. Due to its proximity to some of the high rated parks in Tanzanian it never lags behind in game viewing. Enjoying the African games in a quite atmosphere is an experience of difference. Another attraction of Tarangire is elephants that follow age-old migration routes through the park in enormous numbers. In season it is common to see several hundreds of elephants in a single day.
Tarangire can be visited year around, but August through October is best months for elephants and other wildlife.
