Tarangire National Park lies 120 km south of Arusha and oﬀers a wide variety of wildlife in its area of 2,850 sq. km. The Tarangire River, after which the park is named, provides the only permanent water for wildlife in the area. When the Maasai Steppes around the park dry up with the end of the long rains in June, migratory animals return to the Tarangire River, making Tarangire National Park second only to Ngorongoro in the concentration of wildlife. This period stretches between June and October and it is the best season for game viewing in Tarangire. The most common animals found include zebras, wildebeest, lions, leopards, waterbucks, giraﬀe, elephants, gazelles, impala, gerenuk, lesser kudu, and the beautiful Fringe-eared Oryx.
