The wonders of Tarangire national park

The wonders of Tarangire national park : Tarangire is a fantastic national park which is integral part of many northern Tanzania safari circuit, although probably not as well-known as the Ngorongoro Crater or even the Serengeti National park. This national park is the best place to start and even conclude any Tanzania safari expedition because it is so close to Arusha city, the country’s capital and center for safari tourism. Tarangire became recognized as the national park in 1970. It covers an area of around 2,600 square kilometers in size and is home to hundreds of different bird species and mammals.

Although the Tarangire Valley dominates the landscape, the park is mostly hilly. The Tarangire national park is mainly known for being home of giants due to largest populations of elephants that are found there and gigantic baobab trees which are the main plant species in the park.

In addition to other wonderful antelope species, you will have the chance to witness wildebeests, zebras, and Cape buffaloes inside this park. The park is also home to many antelopes including Oryx. The Oryx is a particularly large, graceful species of antelope that is distinguished from other species by its long, straight horns and remarkable black patterns on its face. However, the Eland, which weighs between 400 and 1000 kg, is the largest antelope in the world (which is about 880 to 2200 lb).

 There are about 6,000 elephants inside the park, which will appeal to individuals who are pachyderm enthusiasts. These animals travel across the plains in vast herds of roughly 600 individuals, each of whom is given special attention.

It’s a pretty sure that you will see any of these wonderful animals in motion while in the park’s many baobab trees. These magnificent trees, dispersed over the broad plains, somehow shorten even the gigantic elephants. Baobab trees are said to have wonderful qualities since many people make wishes on them. But with a spectacular safari trip through Tarangire ahead of you, what else can you ask for?

The Tarangire River serves as the park’s main source of water for animals used especially during the dry season. Actually, despite the fact that the river’s flow is much reduced during the dry season, water is always present here. In fact, during the dry season, animals migrate around in search of water to quench their thirst. Wild animals can be seen swarming together in great numbers near the river’s banks as a result of their thirst. Within Tarangire National Park, bird watchers will also discover a refuge. Here, over 500 different species of birds have been identified and may all be seen.

Therefore, don’t forget to bring your binoculars on our Tarangire National Park safari. From the numerous bird species to the widely dispersed large baobab trees, the elegant curvature of antelope horns to the calming strides of a giant elephant, Tarangire won’t be disappoint you.
