Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is a national park in Tanzania’s Manyara Region. The name of the park originates from the Tarangire River that crosses the park. The Tarangire River is the primary source of fresh water for wild animals in the Tarangire Ecosystem during the annual dry season. The Tarangire Ecosystem is defined by the long-distance migration of wildebeest and zebras. During the dry season thousands of animals concentrate in Tarangire National Park from the surrounding wet-season dispersal and calving areas. It covers an area of approximately 2,850 square kilometers (1,100 square miles.) The landscape is composed of granitic ridges, river valley, and swamps. Vegetation is a mix Acacia woodland, Combretum woodland, seasonally flooded grassland, and baobab trees.

Flora and Fauna

Tarangire National Park is home to the oldest elephant to ever give birth to twins. An excellent illustration of how the birth of these two healthy and thriving twins might defy the odds is the recent birth of elephant twins in Tanzania’s Tarangire National Park. The park is a sanctuary for bird enthusiasts, hosting more than 550 different species of birds. The termite mounds that dot the landscape in the park are also well-known. The dwarf mongoose frequently lives in those that have been abandoned. 2015 saw the discovery of a leucism-related white giraffe in the park. Masai giraffe and African bush elephant are the main subjects of wildlife studies. The protected area has been a recognized Lion Conservation Unit since 2005.

Elephants are abundant in the park, which is also known for its baobab trees. During the dry months of June to November, visitors to the park can anticipate seeing vast herds of zebra, wildebeest, and cape buffalo. Waterbuck, giraffe, dik dik, impala, eland, Grant’s gazelle, vervet monkey, banded mongoose, and olive baboon are among other common residents. African wild dogs, lions, leopards, cheetahs, caracals, honey badgers, and other predators can be found in Tarangire.
