Itinerary Ideas

Experience a Tarangire Safari

A Tarangire safari is best combined with other destinations to deliver a diverse and rewarding holiday. And thanks to Tarangire’s northern setting, the most obvious – and easiest – combinations with Tarangire are the other destinations of Tanzania’s ‘northern safari circuit’: the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Together, these destinations provide for excellent game viewing, blending the Tarangire experience with Big 5 safaris in the Ngorongoro and the wildlife-rich savannahs of the Serengeti, home to the world-famous wildebeest migration.

 

Timing is important if you want to get the best out of all these destinations: Tarangire is best visited between early June and the end of October but several lodges remain open until March. The Ngorongoro is generally considered a year-round destination but if you are planning to catch the wildebeest migration too, then the herds are in the Serengeti between November and June/July. Depending on your schedule, you may need to add Kenya’s Masai Mara to your itinerary as the wildebeest are generally in the Masai Mara between July and October.

 

A Tarangire safari can also include the wilder and less-visited conservation areas of Tanzania’s central and south regions – Ruaha National Park and the Selous Game Reserve are our top choices – but for a different side to your African safari, why not finish off with a few lazy days on the beach? Tropical Zanzibar is simple to add to a Tanzania safari and there is a wide range of accommodation on the island to suit all tastes and budgets.

What To Do

Activities To Look Forward To

1. Go On A Game Drive

With some of the best wildlife viewing in Tanzania, the Tarangire is a place where game drives take centre stage. Morning & afternoon game drives are led by sharp-eyed guides in search of big game; a spot-lit night drive is also offered at some camps.

2. Walk Tarangire

Giving you the chance to view the finer details of the natural landscape, Tarangire lodges also offer guided walks ranging from a few hours around camp to multi-day fly-camping adventures where you leave the lodge & camp out in the wilderness.

3. Go Bird Watching

With a third of Tanzania’s birds & reputedly an area with the world’s greatest number of breeding bird species, Tarangire National Park is justifiably one of the best birding destinations anywhere & at any time of year. The bird count is an almost unbelievable 550 species.

4. Bring The Family

Ask us about family-friendly safaris in Tarangire: with great dry-season game viewing, it’s a good destination for families with older children & some of our lodges have children’s activity centres & larger accommodation units.

5. Visit The Community

Some lodges have access to local communities outside the park, many of which supply the staff & guides for the camps. A sensitively guided tour to a local village is a highlight for many guests & there is often a chance to visit community projects.
