  • unfortunately we went there after serengeti and ngorongoro so think my review is biased. It's a day trip from Arusha and kilimanjaro so pretty crowed especially when there is a "special sighting" it's...  more »

  • Absolutely wonderful experience! My first time in a safari. We didn't have to go far from the reception to encounter an amazing collection of animals I've only seen on TV. Highly recommended!
  • Beautiful nature and a safe Elephant park, though last time I did not get that close. It is not ideal for a one-day visit, as the chances to see lions, cheetahs and leopards gets very small. It is simply too large.
  • Beautiful and diverse park with so many of those beautiful and iconic baobab trees! This area was so diverse and beautiful. We loved our game drives through here
  • Located slightly off the main safari route, Tarangire National Park is a lovely, quiet park in Northern Tanzania. It is most famous for its elephant migration, birding and authentic safari atmosphere. The majority of travellers to the region either miss out Tarangire altogether or venture into the park for a matter of hours - leaving swathes of Tarangire virtually untouched! Be prepared to see and feel a few Tsetsi Flies.
  • Great safari experience. We camped in the public campsite. Even had elephants walking only 15 meters in front of our tent in the evening. Definitely the safari to choose when you want to do one day.
