Any question?.

Arusha Park Safari

Being located slightly out of the Northern Tanzania circuit, makes this hidden gem park to be unpopular among African  Safari visitors.

Another reason for Tarangire park to have less Attention to visitors is that it is always seasonal in nature throughout the year, where animals migrate to Masai planson rainy seasons and come back when it is dry.These facts make most of the travelers miss out on the real taste of African safari or taking just a few hours gaming around before leaving swathes of this park virtually untouched 

Would you believe that Tarangire National park has a largest concentration of  GAME  per square kilometer than any other Northern circuit park?  Sounds insane,right?

That is true but, it is seasonal, from July to October when it is the dry time at Tarangire all animals gather along the Tarangire River which will be the only source of water at that time. This is the only time when the number of games can not be compared to any other park. Unfortunately, for the rest of the year, The Tarangire national park is left unpopulated as animals migrate to the Masai Plains looking for Fresh pastures and Breeding.


Tarangire the stunning park is well known for having huge Herds of elephants, ancient Baobab Trees, Sun-backed termite hills, a large array of birds, and an authentic African safari atmosphere. All-inclusive, this park is a beautiful and superb “tiny” park that guarantees the greatest value to vacation makers especially during high seasons. This is the time when  Serengeti and Ngorongoro are fully congested, at this season  Tarangire becomes the best option for those who are looking for a real African relaxed safari.

Tarangire - When to go

As  Game drive is concerning, dry seasons which start from July to  October are the best time for Tarangire Safari as wild animals gather around the Tarangire River. Apart from this period, you’re not guaranteed to spot a high concentration of Animals.

However, if relaxation and affordability are your main motive, low seasons are the best options as there are few congestions and most of the lodges and hotels drop their rates!
