Huge herds of elephant, greater kudu, impala and zebra are all easily spotted while leopards lurk in the trees. Due to the camp’s secluded location you are unlikely to see many vehicles as you venture out into the national park.

The beauty of Tarangire unfolds as you venture out into the baobab scattered landscape. During the dry season the concentration of wildlife in the Tarangire is second only to the Serengeti ecosystem.
