TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK
Elephant Migrations & Birding Sights
Tarangire National Park covers approximately 2600 square kilometers and is located about 120 km (75 miles) southwest of Arusha, not far to the south-east of Lake Manyara.
One of the lesser visited parks in northern Tanzania, it features wild landscapes and diverse habitats serving as a reminder of untouched Africa.
Its vegetation ranges from a hilly scenery, home to large numbers of Baobab trees dotting the landscape, to Acacia woodland and groves of Palm trees.
Elsewhere there is grassland, swamplands, floodplains, high grasses and dense bush.
Although home to numerous animal species, the park is known for its vast number of elephants, tree climbing African pythons as well as its Baobab trees.
During the dry season (June-September) thousands of animals migrate from Manyara to Tarangire, making for the largest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti biosphere.
Last but not least the park has over 300 species of birds and is breeding ground to the highest recorded number of bird species of any habitat in the world. A bird watchers paradise.
