Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park

Picture This picturesque is dotted with Baobab and Acacia trees, and looks most spectacular during the dry season when many migratory species come to Tarangire river that flows the length of the park. Tarangire Park is full of birds of prey, and offers a rich variety of wildlife, including zebra, kudu, eland, impala, gazelle, buffalo, wildebeest, leopard, rhino and lots of smaller mammals.

Tarangire migration patterns and when to go:

The animals mostly disperse during April and May, when there is widespread greenery, vegetation and standing water to encourage all the grazers further a field.

In June, the eland and oryxes begin to return, followed by elephant towards the end of the month. Tarangire is a great spot for elephant gatherings at the end of the rainy season in June, and zebra and wildebeest return together through July.

By mid-August all the animals are congregating around their last reliable water source, the Tarangire River. The calving season falls in the early months of the year, through January, February and March, and so makes the most of the fresh grass during the rainy season.
