This is the last of a four-part series on national parks in Kenya and Tanzania.
Tarangire National Park, about 90 kilometers southwest of Arusha in Tanzania is home to the impressive baobab tree as well as an amazing variety of wildlife. The flora in this region is dominated by the baobab trees, with their characteristically huge trunks, and the beautiful acacia trees. The Tarangire (map) bursts with wildlife particularly during the dry season (August – November) when large herds of elephants, wildebeest, hartebeest, impalas and gazelles make this park their home. Look out for the cute warthogs. They’re my favourite!

Another park worth a visit is the nearby Lake Manyara National Park that is famous for its flamingos, hippos and tree-climbing lions.
