Sat in the central part of Tarangire National Park and shaded by a grove of acacia and kigelia trees are six, spacious and light safari rooms and a cosy mess area that belongs to Kuro Tarangire Camp.
The location is important, not only is it a short distance from Kuro Airstrip for those looking to fly to the camp, but it is most importantly away from the busy northern section of the park, often frequented by day trippers dropping into Tarangire on their way to another destination. The camp is a stone’s throw from the banks of the Tarangire River and within easy reach of the Silale and Gursi, which is where some of the best wildlife viewing can be found.
The camp is open between June and mid-March, closing for the height of the rainy season and wildlife viewing is best here during the peak of the dry season from July-October. Tarangire is famous for its large herds of elephant and buffalo during this time. It is not to say that the park should be avoided at other times of year as there is always something to see and the bird-watching can be particularly good between December and February.
Kuro is surrounded by fantastic walking country and a guided safari walk is certainly one of the highlights of staying in Tarangire National Park. Walks normally depart from in front of camp along the riverbed with your armed guide and TANAPA ranger. It might even culminate in a well-earned bush brunch. Night drives are also possible from the camp, giving you a chance to spot secretive nocturnal animals.
