From the verdant sparkling waterways of the Okavango Delta to the arid expanse of the great Kalahari, Botswana is a land of great contrast. This precious, peaceful country offers a plethora of luxury accommodation as well as exhilarating mobile camping and tranquil house boat accommodation.
Tarangire National Park is a large national park in Tanzania slightly off the popular northern Tanzania Safari Circuit. The park lies between the meadows of Masai Steppe to the south east and the lakes of the Great Rift Valley to the north and west.
It is famous for its high density of elephants and baobab trees. Within the northern part of Tarangire is the permanent Tarangire River, from which the park derives its name, also known as the life-line of the park particularly in the dry season when most of the region is totally dry. The river flows northwards until it exits the park in the northwestern corner where it pours into Lake Burungi.
There are a number of wide swamps which dry into green plains during the dry season in the south.
Tarangire is most popular for its large elephant herds and mini-wildlife migration that takes place during the dry season which sees about 250,000 animals enter the park.
