Tarangire National Park Vacations
The national capital Dar es Salaam is located 300 miles (483 kilometers) southeast of Tarangire National Park.
Consider using Tarangire National Park as a base for further explorations. This much-loved region has plenty of wonderful cultural and natural attractions. Lake Manyara National Park, 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the south, and Karatu, 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the southeast of Tarangire National Park are also worth visiting should you have the time.
Get outside and make the most of Tanzania's fascinating open-air markets.
Bird watching and wildlife watching are just a few of the options for relaxation in this area. There are some great adventures to be savoured in the area around Tanzania. Head out and go hiking or mountain climbing to get your adrenaline pumping.
Local foods are one of the keys to getting to know about an area. So make sure you make the time to visit some of Tanzania's cafés and restaurants. Ingredients you'll find in a number of Tanzania kitchens are ugali (maize porridge) and fish. Of course, no vacation in Tanzania is complete without tasting ugali (cornmeal) or vitumbua (rice cakes). Once the main course dishes are cleared away try the mouthwatering kashata ( made from coconut and ground nuts). For those who enjoy a quality brew, have a taste of tusker beer. It's a common choice in Tanzania. Tamamrind nectar is a terrific non-alcoholic drink to enjoy at any time of day.
Holidays are about making friends and having great adventures. Tarangire National Park is an excellent spot for such a holiday.
