Discover Tarangire

Tarangire is one of Tanzania’s lesser-known National Parks but is a particularly scenic wilderness and a little quieter than other parks in the Northern Circuit. Located only about a 100-km accessible drive southwest of Arusha and covering 2850-sq-km, the varied landscape includes African savannah grasslands, vast swamps that dry into verdant plains during the dry season, mixed thorny woodlands and some lovely ribbons of riverine forest. The permanent Tarangire River is the predominant feature, set against majestic baobab and twisted acacia trees. During the dry seasons, animals move to the river for water when it’s a prime spot for game-viewing.

Camps In Tarangire

Baobab Tented Camp

Baobab Tented Camp is located in the middle of Tarangire National Park, making it an excellent place to stay when exploring this park. 
Many tourists visit the park and stay at accommodations outside the park as there are several cheaper options. Still, a great advantage to staying inside the park is that from around 3 pm, the park starts getting empty as visitors rush to their accommodations which are mostly far, giving our guests an exclusive safari experience inside the park. Morning hours are also less busy, which is an excellent advantage for the ones who sleep inside the park.
