“lions, elephants, hippos galore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Tarangire National Park has "resident' animals-animals that stay year round. Therefore it is a great park to see many animals. It didn't disappoint!

“Stacks of animals!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

What a beautiful area, rolling hills, huge trees, outstanding offroading and heaps of Giraffe and Elephants! Don't expect to see Rhinos or any of the savannah dwellers such as Zebra or Wildebeest, also be prepared for the vicious little Tsetse Fly; you will drive through areas where they gang up on you and survive even the hardest hits!! Great day out though.

“amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Drove 30 feet into the park, and there were lions roaming about, crossing the road and stalking something. If you only have limited time, tarangire is definitely a must! And the Baobob trees were amazing also! We saw tons of giraffe, elephants, different species of birds, etc.!

“Do it justice and spend 1 or more days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Has some different type of animals and not far from Arusha town. We loved the place because there are more unique features and animals that you will probably not see them in other parks nearby

“Go to this park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Visiting this park is well worth your time. It isn't the Serengeti or the Crater but it is still worth your time if you want to view the wildlife or just enjoy the outdoors. If I can suggest a company to book for your day trips and safari's I would recommend 'Destination Tanzania Safari's'. Ask for Ayubu to be your driver and you'll love it.
