This is a wooded park and has the highest number of elephants however it is seasonal and the animals do migrate. Even though it is wooded park there is a small area of plain land and we were fortunate to see three cheetahs here.

Lots to see and we loved our trip here African wildlife is varied & spectacular. However for sheer breathtaking brilliance it does not quite match up to Ngorogoro crater or Serengeti. This is more a reflection of the outstanding quality of these parks rather than...More

A true safari experience and not a stay. The only disappointment will be if you stay less than 3 nights.

That's difficult to answer. I would choose Tarangire. We saw more animals in Tarangire than Amboseli. Amboseli was very dry and the water holes/lakes are slowly drying up. Our driver stayed close to the main water source and... More

Hi - we saw leopards, lions, and cheetahs in Tarangire. The leopard was up in a tree and there were many safari vehicles around it - so I'm guessing it was rather unusual. We spotted a cheetah mother and cub from far away... More
