Tarangire National Park is renowned for its large elephant population, ancient baobab trees, and diverse wildlife, including lions, leopards, and various species of birds. The park is also famous for its seasonal migration of wildebeest and zebras.

Tarangire National Park is located in northern Tanzania, about 120 kilometers (75 miles) southwest of Arusha. It is part of Tanzania’s northern safari circuit, which includes other famous parks such as Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Lake Manyara.

The wet season, from November to May, offers lush landscapes and abundant birdlife but can make wildlife viewing more challenging.
