Parque Nacional Tarangire

Tarangire National Park – located three hours (140 km) southwest of Arusha, Tarangire National Park deserves much more and should be added to any Tanzanian eco-tourist itinerary for two reasons: First, not only does Tarangire boast a variety of wildlife as exotic as its landscape, but the park is also home to Tanzania’s largest population of African elephants. Second, Tarangire is one of the few places in the world – besides Madagascar, Australia and a few other African spots – where you find plenty of Baobab trees; the species found in Tanzania is Adansonia digitata, the largest of all eight baobab species in the world.
