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.
• Thousands of animals congregating at the Tarangire River
• 550 species of birds
• Tree climbing pythons
• Strategically placed quality safari lodges
The park covers about 1,600 miles (2,600 km).
It is located about 75 miles( 118km) southwest of Arusha on the northern safari circuit.
