 Wildlife at Tarangire National park

In search of underground streams, herds of up to 300 elephants can be seen in the dry riverbeds, while migrating wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest, and eland swarm the dwindling lagoons. Additionally, it’s common to see dry-country antelope like the long-necked gerenuk and fringe-eared Oryx. Mongoose colonies are often found in abandoned termite mounds.
