Just an hour’s drive from Arusha, Tarangire National Park has 2600sq/km of pristine savanna wilderness. The park is particularly famous for its elephant population and  the giant baobab trees, rolling savannah and acacia parkland.   The Tarangire River which runs through the  is the only source of water for wildlife in the ecosystem during the dry season.   Tarangire is also famous for its tree climbing python at the southern swamps as well as rival round dance performed by huge herds of elephants. Although elephant viewing in Tarangire is excellent year round, a dry season visit can be an event of a lifetime.
