- The Tarangire National Park may only be Tanzania’s sixth largest park, but for what it lacks in size, it makes up for elephant migrations, excellent bird-watching opportunities and an authentic safari experience.
- If you’re planning a Kenya safari, here are 20 reasons why you should explore the Tarangire National Park.
The Tarangire National Park in Tanzania has one of the highest concentrations of Elephants. During the dry season, whenever it gets hot around late morning, many of these Elephants troop into a swamp to cool off, and around late afternoon, they all come back out again to head for higher grounds. #tanzania #tarangirenationalpark #elephants #silaleswamp
Giraffes don't need to drink water everyday, as they get some from the plants they consume. However, when they do need a drink, it's a chore! They carefully survey the watering hole, as splaying their legs to get into a position to drink makes them very vulnerable to predators. Their bodies then manage their blood pressure, so that they don't pass out from stooping so low. Their epiglottis and lips then operate as a plunger-pump to suck the water into their esophagus. They then stand up, and the water flows down to their bodies, with any excess flung out, as you can see in this photo. #tanzania #tarangirenationalpark #giraffe #giraffedrinkingwater #safari
It's hard to describe the massiveness of the African elephant and the commanding nature of their presence.
