Tarangire National Park

Tarangire consists of mostly dry and open woodlands...

...and is partly dominated by the Tarangire River.

In the evening the park gets a wonderful atmosphere.

Large numbers of elephant herds congregate in the national park.

There are some great accommodation options located within the national park.

Tarangire National Park offers great wildlife viewings...

...game drives in open-sided vehicles...

...as well as bush walks.

You might spot some wildlife from the terrace of your accommodation...

...or elsewhere while on safari.

… the more intimate and remote Kuro Tarangire ...

...the diminutive dik dik...

...ever present impala...

Smaller predators such a serval and bat-eared fox also occur.

Tarangire River snakes its way through the park.

"Our Jun 2024 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 26 Jun 2024 and 8 Jul 2024
"What an amazing trip, absolutely a once in a lifetime experience. Expert Africa planned and executed each portion of the trip extremely well allowing us to take the time to relax and enjoy our vacation. Our guide was excellent, not only knowing the most likely places to see wildlife, but also providing a wealth of information along the way."

"My Feb 2024 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 11 Feb 2024 and 21 Feb 2024
"The entire trip was fantastic.

We were taken care of from the moment we arrived to the moment we departed.

Did not have to worry about a thing and the logistics of the trip were executed fantastically, even with the hiccup of a broken down vehicle.

"My Jan 2024 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 17 Jan 2024 and 28 Jan 2024
"The guide we were assigned by Asilia was extraordinary. The most kind , knowledgeable and lovely man … 10 days with a stranger can have its issues but he was fantastic from day one. I cannot recommend Natho high enough. He looked after me - with mobility issues - and my family superbly. I cried when we said farewell which tells you much. Please pass this on to the Asilia management

I was prior to arriving in Tanzania unaware about the distance we would travel. Our guide told me we drove 1455kms !!!
We got infested with tsetse flies in Tarangire… you may wish to advise your clients … wasn’t pleasant

This was our 5th safari you organised for us and beyond the best. Your ground arrangements were superb from beginning to end … KLM NOT SO …

I would like to see a section here about the Guide and our view of them" Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 10 on a Tanzania safari

"My Nov 2023 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 29 Oct 2023 and 11 Nov 2023
"We had a truly fabulous trip.

Honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more. We saw everything we wanted to see and all the camps were excellent and provided a different experience (we stayed at Kuro Tarangire, Lamai Serengeti, and Namiri Plains).

Already thinking about when we can go back!" Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 11 on a Tanzania safari

"My Oct 2023 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 20 Oct 2023 and 4 Nov 2023
"Our safari was wonderful, a truly memorable trip.

The three camps that we stayed in were all somewhat different in terms of the environment and complimented each other very well. What was consistent at all three Nomad camps was the excellent service provided. It was clear to us that Nomad is an exceptional company which manages its' operation very well. The staff were all highly motivated and enthusiastic about working for Nomad.

The result was that our safari holiday was most enjoyable in every respect; the camps were in great locations, the tents were very comfortable, the food was interesting and delicious, and the guides outstanding.

We would not hesitate to recommend them." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 10 on a Tanzania safari

"My Oct 2023 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 6 Oct 2023 and 17 Oct 2023
"This trip is by far my favorite trip I've ever taken!

Sadly we just missed the river crossing, all the wildlife we saw up close, the action and the amazing people we met and hospitality we received made the trip an experience of a lifetime.

It's been a few weeks since we've been back home and we're already starting to look at our next safari destination! We cannot wait to go back to Tanzania to visit friends we've made and to explore new destinations in Africa!

Thank you Jessica for planning and catering to all of our needs!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Thank you Jessica for planning this trip and for making sure all of our asks and needs are perfectly matched!

We loved all of your recommendations and all of our guides were top notch and made our entire trip so memorable.

For younger and more adventurous travelers, I think Maasai village visit or a bushman walk would be more interesting than a walking tour in Mto wa Mbu.

This was a misunderstanding on my part as I didn't look more into what Mto wa Mbu village tour was compared to Maasai village that Jessica originally recommended!" Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 7 on a Tanzania safari

"This was a trip of a lifetime!

Lindsey Marris was excellent every detail was taken care of and expertly planned!

My hour long conversation with Aurthor, Chris McIntyre was the reason I chose Expert Africa. They get very high ratings.

They listed to what we wanted and planned accordingly. Everything was first class!

Great trip I cannot say enough praises for them!!" Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 9 on a Tanzania safari

"My Sep 2023 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 16 Sep 2023 and 1 Oct 2023
"This was our first safari and we wanted to use an experienced company to arrange things for us. After a lot of research we chose Expert Africa and were glad that we did. Jessica listened to everything we asked for and planned the perfect trip. When we did have a small issue with a hotel transfer in Zanzibar, she quickly fixed it for us and kept us informed throughout.

All the accommodation and staff at Asilia Africa were exceptional, we could not have asked for anything better. The guides were all extremely knowledgeable and really cared that we had the best safari experience possible. The rooms were beautiful and so luxurious. The food was delicious and plentiful (perhaps bordering on too plentiful!).

Our time at Kilindi was very relaxing and just what we needed after a busy 10 days on safari." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 9 on a Tanzania safari

"My Aug 2023 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 25 Aug 2023 and 5 Sep 2023
"Brilliant. Superbly organised by Tam our Expert Africa organiser. Tam was great, very helpful from start to finish.

All our ground arrangements were very good, especially being met by a very efficient lady from Swiss port at the airport on arrival and being transferred to our accommodations.

Loved our trip, and want to go back again asap. Asilia guides and camps excellent.

Not that keen on Ngorongoro farmhouse but ok for a stop over.

Thank you Tam for all your hard work in organising our trip so that everything went without a hitch." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 10 on a Tanzania safari
