Tarangire National Park
Tarangire National Park has an area of 2,600 sq km and is named after the Tarangire River that flows through the park throughout the year. July to September is a good time to visit as part of your Tanzania safari as the animals from the park and surrounding game controlled areas gather at the permanent source of water. There are fewer visitors in comparison with the busy Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti National Park, and it is this relative quiet which forms part of the attraction to this park.

A visit to Tarangire National Park is awe-inspiring, especially during the dry season when large herds of migratory game are attracted to the permanent waters of the Tarangire River. Part of a larger ecosystem, Tarangire supports similar game to the Serengeti but is far less visited, making it a unique and special Tanzania safari experience..
Tarangire Conservation Area is a sixty thousand-acre area set aside by the local villages. The area protects the main wet-season migration route into the neighbouring Tarangire National Park. The lodges in the area give a percentage of their income to the communities. The villagers use this revenue to construct waterpumps and boreholes, and to maintain the schools and dispensaries.
