Tarangire National Park

With hundreds of huge baobabs scattered across this dry landscape, large herds of elephants pass through here in search of food. The Tarangire River provides the major lifeline for all the game. It then runs into huge swamps in the south. To the northwest, the lush Lake Manyara National Park with its prolific birdlife provides a forest home to thousands of monkeys and tree climbing lions.
