Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is overlooked in comparison to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Lake Manyara on the northern Tanzania safari circuit, but what this should tell you is that it is sublimely quiet, less travelled, and full of undiscovered secrets. Tarangire is not the same as the Serengeti, and its wildlife and landscapes are unique, so it should be visited in addition to the more well known parts of the northern country. The dry season between July and October is when this place really shines, and it sees an incredible migration of thousands of elephants in particular. Cheetahs thrive here, and baobabs build striking horizons, while the Tarangire River meanders its way through the park.

Birdlife is celebrated in Tarangire in particular, and because it is far quieter than other parts of Tanzania, there seems to be plenty of time to slow down and enjoy birds, such as the yellow-necked spurfowl and the yellow-collared lovebirds. Herds of buffalo, kudu, waterbuck, eland, and zebra populate the landscape especially during the peak dry season, while the unusual long-necked gerenuks can be seen standing on their hind legs to reach leaves higher up in the trees. Only about 120km from Arusha, Tarangire is hardly out of the way in the northern Tanzania safari circuit, and deserves a few days of exploration while staying at one of the lovely, luxury lodges in the park.

Twelve spacious canvas pavilions ensure unrivalled tranquillity, overlooking a popular watering hole. Indoor and outdoor bush-view showers offer even more magical moments because connecting with wildlife is key: the floor-to-ceiling 180° views and the private decks, mean you won’t miss a sight.
