Tarangire National Park is the sixth largest national park in Tanzania; the Tarangire national park is an ornithologists paradise, rich in birds of prey and a splendid diversity of avifauna. The Tarangire national park is located in Manyara Region. The name of ‘Tarangire national park’ originates from the Tarangire River that crosses the park. The Tarangire River is the primary source of fresh water for wild animals in the Tarangire Ecosystem during the annual dry season. The Tarangire Ecosystem is defined by the long-distance migration of wildebeest and zebras. During the dry season, thousands of animals concentrate in Tarangire National Park from the surrounding wet-season dispersal and calving areas.
Tarangire National park is a home of lots of elephants inside the dry season, whilst game congregates alongside the river, and its symbolized by means of the baobab trees, developing in open acacia woodland.
Tarangire National Park
Tarangire National Park has shriveled to a shadow of its wet season self. but it’s miles jam-packed with flora and fauna. Thirsty nomads have wandered hundreds of parched kilometers knowing that right here, there’s usually water. Heard of up to three hundred elephants scratch the parched river mattress for underground streams whilst migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, gazelle, hartebeest, eland and oryx crowd the shrinking lagoons. it’s a smorgasbord for predators – the best awareness of wildlife outside the Serengeti atmosphere.
The Tarangire national park is famous for its high density of elephants and baobab trees. Visitors to the park in June to November dry season can expect to see large herds of thousands of zebra, wildebeest and cape buffalo. Other common resident animals include waterbuck, giraffe, dik-dik, impala, eland, Grant’s gazelle, vervet monkey, banded mongoose, and olive baboon. Predators in Tarangire include lion, leopard, cheetah, caracal, honey badger, and African wild dog.
The oldest known elephant to give birth to twins is found in Tarangire. A recent birth of elephant twins in the Tarangire National Park of Tanzania is a great example of how the birth of these two healthy and thriving twins can beat the odds.
