Wildlife in Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is the 6th largest park in Tanzania and should be on safari itinerary. Known for baobab trees and large herds of elephants, this park is probably the only place in Tanzania where you will encounter so many elephants in one place! Birdwatchers will also enjoy the Tarangire visit, because there are more than 550 bird species to spot. One of them is Kori Bustard, which is the heaviest flying bird. Other noteworhy birds to spot are African endemic Yellow-collared Lovebird, Red-throated Tit, Northern Pied-Babbler, and Ashy Starling.

Tarangire National park,the home of Elephants and birds.
I have been going to Tarangire National park for 14 year now,been doing guide Training here too,and i still find it one of the Best National park in the world.The diversity of Habitats is amazing,the big Tarangire river,the swamps,the high ridge Compretum commiphora,the Acacia woodland,the Savannah plains, The giant baobab trees,All together brings about a great niche dimension which lead to availability of lots of species of animals and birds.incredible bird life,lots of migrant species of birds and also endemic species makes it so unique.
My favorite animal lives here,the elephant.the big number of elephants makes Tarangire one of beautiful places to visit.Being the second park in Africa to hold big high volume of elephants makes it even more special park.

Fairly Close to Arusha, great for Families with Children
Tarangire National park is quite small but worth the visit. One day is more than enough to see the park. Main attraction in this park are elephants which are in abundance! Most likely every visitor to Tarangire Park has been lucky enough to spot a horde of dozen or even more elephants. Park is also suitable for families with children, easy reachable from Arusha or Karatu as opposed to other parks like Serengeti.

    I love elephants so much. Beautiful, majestic creatures. My parents are visiting this park with my nephews in the coming weeks. I love reading your posts Nina so I can see what their life is like in Tanzania as they never share photos!

    This looks like a beautiful park to visit where the animals are free to roam. Thanks for sharing this 🙂
