For many people who have spent years in the African bush, Tarangire is their favourite national park on Tanzania’s richly endowed northern circuit. Looking down from the high ridge, it is not difficult to see why; the Tarangire river winds away into the distance, through open, undulating country. The Tarangire River, from which the park takes its name, supplies the park with its livelihood and becomes the dry season magnet for the vast herds of wildlife that must come down to drink.
Tarangire is central to Tanzania’s northern circuit making it the perfect place to begin or end an African safari.
