Tarangire National Park is probably one of the least visited of the northern Tanzanian game parks, and retains a mystical presence of undiscovered Africa, particularly in the south of the park. Just two hours drive from Arusha, the park is a worthwhile stop if time does not allow for a visit to Serengeti and Ngorongoro.

The Park lies a short distance to the southeast of Lake Manyara and covers an area of approximately 2,850 square kilometers. It is named after the Tarangire River that flows through the park.
