The name Tarangire originates from the Tarangire river that passes through the park, the only source of water for wild animals during the dry season. Thousands of animals migrate to the Tarangire National Park from Manyara during the dry season. So game viewing in this park does have a low and high season. Large numbers of elephant, baobab trees and tree climbing African pythons define this park. The landscape and vegetation is incredibly diverse. The rolling landscape is dotted with Baobab trees making a very picture friendly destination.
