Tarangire National Park

Tarangire is a beautiful dry National park, drier than the Serengeti although it has greener vegetation, mostly the elephant grass, acacia woodlands and some aquatic forests. This park has a lot of wildlife that differs with seasons. In the month of November to May, large herds of zebras and wildebeests move into the north-western direction towards the Rift Valley floor joining the large herds of game that roam the endless Masaai. During the dry season of June to October, the game immigrates back to the park for the seasonal rivers.

At 2600 square Kilometers, Tarangire park is blessed with a river in the North that flows upwards up to the corner of the park, in the North West into Lake Burungi, leaving green plains in the dry season. The southern part of the park is less crowded and has a back-country atmosphere
