  1. High Population of elephants

Tarangire’ s claim to fame is its large elephant population – the largest in Tanzania.  During the dry season, herds of up to 300 elephants can be seen digging in the apparently dry riverbed  of the Tarangire River looking for underground streams.

  1. Baobab Tree

Tanzanians respect the baobab as a ‘tree of life.’ Its roots are extremely strong, retaining a phenomenal  amount of moisture. Tarangire’ s baobabs can reach up to 30m high, some trunks have an 11m diameter,  and some trees have reached the grand age of around 1000 years.

  1. Python climbing tree

Especially during the Dry season, when the land is hot, getting refugees from large mammals with hooves  (Ungulate) buffalos, zebra etc. and other animals, the snake leaves the mashes when dry and take refuge  on the tree because the land becomes very hot.

  1. Silale Plain

Animals use this area for refuge during rainy season (the soil of Tarangire is black cotton soil), hence  animals are afraid of hooves decay. The swamp covers an area of some 70 square kilometers and it acts like  a sponge. During the rainy season water is stored here and in the dry season the swamp slowly releases  water into the Tarangire River. There is a picnic sight at the swamp that looks out over the expanse of the  park

Tarangire is outstanding seasonally for wildlife. In the Dry season, the Tarangire River is a magnet for  migratory animals such as wildebeest, zebra, common eland, hartebeest, gazelle, buffalo and elephant – of  which there are more than you can imagine. Lion are quite easily spotted at this time including  endangered species like wild dogs.

  1. Tarangire River

The River is the primary source of fresh water for wild animals in the Tarangire Ecosystem during the  annual dry season. The Tarangire Ecosystem is defined by the long-distance migration  of wildebeest and zebras. During the dry season thousands of animals concentrate in Tarangire National  Park from the surrounding wet-season dispersal and calving areas It’s the only river in Tarangire that  provide water for wildlife throughout the year.

  1. Home of high concentration of different species of birds
