Named after the Tarangire River this national park is especially known for its large elephant herds, arguably the largest numbers in the whole of Africa. Herds of up to 300 elephants come to the marshlands or river to quench their thirst, while zebras, wildebeest, impalas, and elands gather around the shrinking lagoons for their treat.
The landscape is characterized by the giant baobab trees surrounded by an extremely diverse landscape; grasslands, acacia woodlands, forests, bush steppe and extensive swamps. But also birders are majorly drawn to this area, with 550 species recorded to date.
