Tarangire National Park is a safari park that stretches for 2,600 sq. km and is home to a variety of wildlife and natural spectacles. The park was named after the Tarangire River which flows through its land and functions as a main water source for the animals that congregate there. The park is situated in the Manyara Region and is most widely known for its significant elephant population and migratory animals. The Tarangire landscape consists of river valleys and swampland, these swamps often allowing visitors to experience intimate viewing encounters of the elephants that converge there.
Tarangire National Park is most easily recognized due to its many acacia and baobab trees that are scattered throughout the park. Giraffe, leopard, cheetah, lion, wildebeest, and roughly 550 species of bird can be found within the park. Annually, during the dry season, large populations of up to 300 elephants can be found roaming the land in search of water.
