TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK

Tarangire National Park is the sixth largest national park in Tanzania. The name of the park originates from the Tarangire river that crosses through the park, being the only source of water for wild animals during dry seasons. During the dry season thousands of animals migrate to the Tarangire National Park from Manyara.
It lies a little distance to the south east of Lake Manyara and covers an area of approximately 2,850 square kilometers(1,100 square miles.) The landscape and vegetation is incredibly diverse with a mix that is not found anywhere else in the northern safari circuit. The hilly landscape is dotted with vast numbers of Baobab trees, dense bush and high grasses.

The Ngorongoro Crater was created when a large volcano exploded and collapsed millions of years ago.

All these areas support a tremendous number of wildlife from predators to plains game and there are always fantastic game viewing opportunities. However a word of caution - as beautiful as the area is it can be tremendously busy in terms of vehicles. Still there is something quite spectacular about the crater descent and ascent, worth the visit alone!
