All of these natural wonders and more are on offer in this exceptionally diverse African nation. Visitors typically visit Tanzania to partake in at least one of the four well known Tanzanian tourist experiences: a relaxing seaside vacation on the picturesque island paradise of Zanzibar, an underwater tour of some of the world’s most renowned dive sites around the gorgeous Spice Islands, a safari adventure in some of Africa’s most impressive game reserves, or a hiking excursion around Mount Kilimanjaro National Park. Whichever of these incredible holidays you choose, you will undoubtedly be welcomed by some fabulously friendly and peaceful inhabitants who, despite being divided into 120 different ethnic groups and cultures, live in harmony with one another and provide some of the most wonderfully exotic local cuisine you could imagine. With all of this diversity on offer, the most difficult part of your Tanzanian holiday experience is likely to be deciding where to go!
Situated within northwestern Tanzania’s Manyara region, Tarangire is an expansive national park, famous for it's spectacular baobab trees, which stand like ancient sentinels overlooking vast swathes of grassy swamps, dense woodland, granite ridges and the winding Tarangire River. Forming a less-frequented part of Tanzania's 'Northern Circuit', Tarangire National Park is for those looking to venture a little further off the beaten track.
Interspersed with large herds of elephant and buffalo, Tarangire features some of the highest concentrations of mammals in Tanzania, particularly during the dry season from July to October. With a plethora of plains game and birdlife, predators naturally follow closely behind; Tarangire is home to a healthy population of big cats, with lion being amongst the most commonly spotted.
