2018 08 30 Day 8 Ngorongoro to Tarangire National Park

We departed Ngorongoro Crater at 8:30 this morning and traveled to our next national park destination Tarangire National Park. Tarangire National Park is the sixth largest in Tanzania and  it is located inthe Manyara region. The name of the park originates from the Tarangire River that crosses the park. The Tarangire River is the primary source of fresh water for wild animals during the annual dry season. During the dry season thousands of animals concentrate in Tarangire National Park from the surrounding wet-season dispersal and calving areas. It covers an area of approximately 2,850 square kilometers (1,100 square miles.) The landscape is composed of granitic ridges, river valley, and swamps. Vegetation is a mix of Acacia woodland, Commiphora-Combretum woodland, seasonally flooded grassland, and Baobab trees.
