South of Lake Manyara is the large and beautiful Tarangire National Park famed for its baobab trees, large mammals and especially its herds of elephant.

Tarangire in northern Tanzania is a great spot for a safari en route to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Huge herds of elephants, migratory wildebeest, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland are drawn to Tarangire in the dry season, from August to October, when the Tarangire River becomes a magnet for thirsty wildlife as it’s the only permanent water source in the area. As you can imagine, where the animals are so are the predators, making this a dramatic and magical safari experience.
