Tarangire is well known for its elephants (the largest population on the northern circuit) and in the dry season is home to huge herds of buffalo and significant numbers of zebra and wildebeest. There are long vistas and a baobab studded landscape, which makes for a very different environment to the other parks. The Tarangire River is the only water source during the long dry season and wildlife concentrates along the banks providing a good opportunity for the predators. Leopard sightings are often good in this park and it’s also possible to see kudu and oryx, which are rarely seen elsewhere, especially in the dry season.
