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.
