The Ancient Vistas of Tarangire
The vast number of baobabs seen when entering Tarangire National Park signifies an ancient place, an Africa of the past. The park is dotted with these majestic trees and provides for picture postcard photographs – especially when Elephants, of which there are numerous in Tarangire, are feeding beneath the trees. In fact Baobabs and Elephants typify the soul of the park.
Tarangire National Park has one of the highest densities of Elephant anywhere in Tanzania. Lion and Leopard are common throughout Tarangire, whilst Cheetah are often seen in the open areas of the south. Spotted Hyenas are regularly seen, but sightings of Wild dog are rare.
Over 500 species of birds have been recorded in Tarangire, with screeching flocks of the colourful yellow-collared lovebird, the rufous-tailed weaver and ashy starling, all of which are endemic to Tanzania.
