Tarangire National Park is one of the finest parks in Tanzania . Located in the Rift Valley, not far from the eastern shore of Lake Manyara, Tarangire covers almost 2,600 square kilometers and contains nine different vegetation zones, each supporting distinct types of wildlife. The gently rolling hills are punctuated with majestic Baobab trees, ( Adansonia digitata ) alternating with open acacia woodland, rivers, and stands of palm treesIn the dry season (Aug-Oct), when many of the migratory wildlife species return to the permanent waters of the Tarangire River, the park boasts nearly as high a concentration of animal life as Ngorongoro Crater.
Large herds of elephants, zebras, wildebeests, eland and Oryx congregate here until the wet season allows them to migrate to fertile new grazing land. The river and its surrounding watering holes also attract numerous species of birds to the area. Over 300 species of birds have been recorded in the park, including green wood hoopoes, green and yellow parrots, Fischer's and yellow-collared lovebirds, as well as doves, mouse birds, cuckoos, swifts, and swallows
