... is a substantial national park which lies around 100km to the south of the Serengeti in Northern Tanzania.

This pretty park offers a rather more subtle experience than that in the Serengeti, the wildlife here is no where near as visible on the whole, but there is plenty of interest, notably the wonderful baobab trees and a prodigious number of elephants. It is also the only part of the northern parks where you might see greater kudus, fringe-eared oryx, bohor reedbucks and gerenuks.

The park contains a really good range of accommodation, notably some superb tented camps in the quieter southern sectors of the reserve, some of which are also able to offer walking safari and night vehicle safari.

The main potential downsides in Tarangire is that the wildlife viewing during the Dec/May green season can be quite difficult, the tsetse flies can be quite a nuisance in more heavily wooded areas and there can be significant vehicle clustering in the northern and central sectors, especially during the Jul/Sep high season.
