Tarangire National Park covers an area of 2,600 sq km and was established in 1970. The park has numerous baobab trees that will primarily catch your attention. The Park derived its name from the Tarangire River that rises in the highlands of Central Tanzania and winds its way through the game sanctuary. The river beguilingly lures the herds of plains migrants from the desiccated surrounding area to its shrunken – but permanent – blackish waters during the dry season.

Covering 260 sq. km, the Ngorongoro crater is a great wildlife attraction. You will have no trouble spotting Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo and many species of plains animals -Wildebeest, Zebra, Reedbuck, Thompson gazelle and many more.

Thousands of flamingos inhabit the edges of Lake Manyara during the wet season and then fly elsewhere when the lake dries up. Nevertheless, bird-enthusiasts should not be discouraged. The park offers over 400 different species of bird, many remaining throughout the year. Visitors can expect to see over 100 different species on any given day. The entrance gate to the Lake Manyara National Park doubles as an exit and so the trail of the park is effectively a loop which can be covered by jeep in 2-5 hours depending on speed. Giant fig trees and mahogany can be seen in the groundwater forest around the park gates drawing nourishment from the underground springs.
