The Tarangire National Park is known as a wonderful birding destination and also features large numbers of game, particularly during the dry season, when the Tarangire River is the only source of water in the area. The landscape is of particular interest too, due to the high number of scenic baobab trees.
The Tarangire National Park has the highest density birds and elephants in North Tanzania and
you can view these animals all year round in which the herds often can reach an impressive
number of 300 animals. The Tarangire River has water all year round and during the dry season,
between July and October, many animals from the surrounding areas come to the river for
drinking. If you visit the park during the dry season, you will witness an unforgettable natural
wonder as you can observe wonderful creatures such as lions, giraffes, buffaloes, wildebeests
and zebras as well as various types of antelopes and gazelles and with a little luck, you can also
spot a python! This area is during the dry season also a haven for bird watchers with over 550
different species including the Masai Ostrich -the world largest bird. Around lunchtime, you will
stop at a suitable picnic place before the afternoon is dedicated to more wildlife watching.
Before sunset, you will be taken back to your hotel in Arusha via Snakes Park.
