This beautiful park stretches south east of Lake Manyara around the Tarangire River. During dry season, particularly between August and October, it has one of the highest concentrations of wildlife of many of the country’s parks. Large herds of zebra, wildebeest, hartebeest and elephant can be found here until October when the short wet season allows them to move on to new lush grasslands. Eland, lesser kudu, gazelle, giraffe, waterbuck, impala and occasional leopard & rhino can be seen at Tarangire year round. The park is also very good for bird watching with over 300 different species recorded.
