Tarangire National Park
Tarangire - Tanzania National Park in the Manyara region, spread over an area of 2,600 km2. The Manyara region borders on another Arusha region, which has a well-known national park of the same name. The park was also named as the river, which almost completely dries out during the drought.
Tarangire Park is 7 km from Lake Manyara, known for its flocks of pink flamingos. The park has quite large hills, among them the highest - Loksisale ( 2132 meters ) and Kvarakha ( 2415 meters ). A visit to the park is part of the so-called northern safari program, during which tourists call in the Ngorongoro Nature Reserve and the world-famous Serengeti National Park.
The wonderful landscapes of Tarangire National Park are different from the typical nature of Tanzania. Majestic baobabs rise above the green grass, acacia, Indian dates, shrubs grow on the plains.
In July - October, the driest time in the park passes. Huge herds of elephants up to 300 individuals roam in search of life-giving moisture, dig up the channel of the Tarangire River. The migration of antelopes, zebras, buffaloes begins. A drying river becomes for herbivores salvation from painful death. Such a cluster of thirsty animals is very pleasing to predators who are waiting for easy prey near the channel of the Tarangire River, scavengers are spinning in the sky, hoping to grab their prey.
During the rainy season, the savannah comes to life - the riverbeds are filled with water, swamps appear, animals and birds return to the plains. On the swamps of Tarangire Park you can find up to 500 varieties of birds - this is one of the largest nesting within the same area. Large African drufs and ostriches run along the plains, horned ravens, parrots and starlings fly around. In old termites, dwarf mongooses and fiery trachyphonuses took refuge.
In this park you can hunt animals and birds, which makes these edges very attractive for hunters. The hunting season begins in early July and ends in April. Hunters can take up high-class rangers to help them show the best places to hunt. You can stay in Tarangire Park both in the hotel and in the campground. Many tourists prefer to walk around the African savannahs, as well as tourists often visit Barabaig - here on the rocks you can see drawings of primitive people.
You can rest in Tarangire Park all year, but it is best to do this in June - February during the migration of animals and birds.
