Tarangire National Parks History
Little is known about Tarangires history before colonial times. The park was once
Part of Maasai land, but the Maasai never made use of the park because of the tsetse fly which causes sleeping sickness in cattle.
Tarangire National Park has an abundance of game during the dry season, June to early November it is spectacular because of the abundance of game, Tarangire also has its own migration of wildebeest and zebra other animals that roam this land are Lion, Leopard , cheetah and if you really lucky the African wild dog. Tarangire is also famous for its huge herds of elephants and there are still a few big tuskers wondering around.
Over 517 bird species have been identified in the park which makes it a bird's paradise.
Baobabs are particularly common in this area and most of the names in tarangire are derived from Maasai origin.
Lake barungi which is saline is a few kilometers from the lodge and huge herds of flamingoes can be seen which migrate from Namibia.
