Tarangire national park has the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem. It is the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed.
Here you can see the biggest population of elephants in northern Tanzania plus large herds of buffalo. Guests expect regular sightings of migratory wildebeest, zebra,waterbuck, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland. The park also has a high concentration of both big and small cats.
Tarangire is a great birdwatching park and arguably has the best bird diversity in East Africa. The park swamps have the most breeding birds in one habitat anywhere in the world.
Bird lovers might keep an eye open for the yellow collard lovebird, rufous-tailed weaver and ashy starling. Below is a list of some of the wildlife sightings to be enjoyed.
