The chorus of nature rustles through the leaves of baobab trees in Tarangire National Park.

Tarangire_np_Tanzania_shutterstock_499221622_vj4scr As you head north on your magical Tanzania safari tour, Tarangire National Park awaits you with life-changing encounters with Mother Nature.

Nestled into the open plains of Northern Tanzania, Tarangire National Park encompasses 2,600 squared kilometres of natural splendour. The park boasts a rich history which centralises a commitment to conservation, and has since transformed into a haven for wildlife, boasting one of the highest concentrations of migratory wildlife during the Tanzania dry season.

Tarangire National Park homes incredibly diverse landscapes, providing a serene backdrop for your awe-inspiring luxury safari holiday. The glistening Tarangire River sustains the park’s grassy savannah and woodland, providing life for resident flora and fauna. Intimate game drives and bush walks accompanied by local people reveal a tapestry of wildlife, including giant herds of elephants, a community of vervet monkeys and 550 species of bird. Those who seek East Africa’s elusive predators also have the chance to discover roaming lions and leopards as they seek out their prey.

Tarangire National Park’s passion for nature becomes evident as you witness the pristine environments which have been preserved there. Here, everything is in its right place – the intrinsic rhythms of nature have been re-introduced to a world overcome by technology. As you settle into each idyllic evening in your luxury eco-lodge, which blends seamlessly into the savannah, you feel closer than ever to our planet.

When to go to Tarangire National Park

Generally, there is no best time to visit Tanzania, as both its wet and dry season bring advantages and incredible wildlife sightings. In Tarangire National Park, the bush thins out between June and November and the weather is beautiful and sunny, attracting wildlife lovers with a plethora of migratory species. However, if you plan your Tanzania holiday between June and August, bring some layers as morning and late night excursions can get chilly.

It is best to avoid March and April due to this being the peak of the wet season, as although landscapes become lusher during this time, animals tend to migrate out of the park. If you seek fewer crowds and lower rates, visit Tarangire during the shoulder months, either May or November to January.
