Explore the amazing wonders of Tarangire National park with Falcon Safaris and observe the amazing wildlife that inhabit the park during all seasons in here.
Tarangire National Park is located about 120 km southwest of Arusha, and is the fifth biggest national park of Tanzania. It is located between the Maasai area in the southeast and the Great Rift Valley in the northwest. The name of the park originates from Tarangire River, a sand river that runs through the narrow park, a source of water during dry seasons.
The Park is fameous for its large herds of elephants near the river or digging into underground streams elsewhere in the park. You can possibly also see herds of migratory animals such as wildebeest, Zebra, and buffalo. Tarangire National Park has a number of species that cannot be seen in the larger parks, such as the grant gazelle, African elk, giraffe gazelle and oryx.
