Its sparse vegetation, strewn with baobab and acacia trees, makes it a beautiful and distinctive location to visit. Locates just a few hours’ drive from the town of Arusha. Tarangire is a popular stop for people traveling through the northern safari circuit on their way to Ngorongoro and Serengeti.
