Nestled between the meadows of Masai Steppe to the southeast and the lakes of the Great Rift Valley to the north and west, the park covers approximately 2,850 square kilometres of diverse landscapes. Named after the life-giving Tarangire River that winds its way through its heart, the park offers you an authentic African wilderness experience.

Blessed with a picturesque combination of savannah, rolling hills, and dense woodland, Tarangire is an adventurer’s paradise.

An escapade to this beautiful park gifts you not just mesmerizing views, but also an array of natural wonders right from dawn to dusk on your Tanzania Safari.
