Tarangire National Park is a little gem in the northern Tanzania safari circuit.  Less well known than its big brother, the Serengeti, Tarangire boasts the next greatest concentration of wildlife after that magnificent area. The herds of elephant and buffalo are surprisingly big here, often numbering in the hundreds.  There is also a great variety of plains game including giraffe, eland, impala and zebra to name but a few. Of course, this also makes for perfect cat territory and we’ve often quietly observed large prides of healthy looking lion and been privileged to see a few leopard during our exploits here.

Tarangire is an old haunt of ours and in fact head guide Richard Knocker cut his teeth here on this very site, and it was also Mark & Milly Houldsworth’s first marital home.  So we’ve kind of got a soft spot for it and when we decided to open our camp here, as a perfect complement to our other camps in the north, choosing a site was easy.

What we particularly like about this spot is that it gives us access to the Silale Swamp area which attracts lots of eles, and we’re located on the Tarangire River which is a bit of a corridor for wildlife moving through the park.  On our trips there, we’ve often seen huge herds of buffalo moving between the hills to the west and the riverbed.

The birdlife here is pretty impressive too, with 550 species having been recorded, and the largest number of breeding species of anywhere in the world.

Tarangire is a fabulous launch pad for a safari into Northern Tanzania.  It’s relatively easy to get to yet it has an authentic rawness of a true safari destination.  It’s one of the best places to observe wildlife doing its thing in a way that Hemingway would have done all those years ago.
