The name derives from Tarangire River that cuts through the park supplying all plant- and animal life with water. One of the largest colonies of baobab-centenarians can be found in Tarangire National Park. When the dry season comes to Tanzania, herbivores migrate to the river seeking salvation from drought. The herds of wildebeest, zebra and buffalo hovering at the edges of dried-up riverbeds attract lions and leopards. And they all await elephants who dig holes in the riverbeds to get at ground water.
Tarangire National Park fees are set by the Director General of Tanzania National Parks. You can check all the up-to-date information on fees here: Park fees for Non Residents & Tanzania Residents
