of wild animal visitors.
With easy access to both the National Park as well as the conservancy, the natural beauty of the hills and dry river beds begs to be explored. You can enjoy guided walking safaris, day and night time game drives and the enchantment of bush dining. During a game drive through the famed Tarangire National Park there is nothing more enjoyable than arriving to a private area in the park for a delicious and relaxing luncheon. And, after a day of game viewing and driving through the famed Tarangire National Park, there is no better way to enjoy the end of another day in the African bush than to enjoy a delicious four-course meal under a canopy of twinkling stars. Whether enjoying a lantern-lit dinner in the traditional boma echoing to the sounds of Maasai chants, or eating poolside by candlelight whilst a wealth of wildlife comes to drink at the Lodge water hole, Treetops creates memories by the minute and in so many differing ways.
Experience the drama and beauty of Africa in one of the most iconic locations that Tarangire has to offer. Sunset Hill is the perfect locations to sit atop and enjoy the deep orange sunsets that often welcome in the starry skies. With food and drinks served by one of the Treetops staff, this is truly a magical experience not to be missed.
Covering an area of 705,000 acres, the Tarangire National Park is named after the perennial river that runs through the heart of the park. The park is famous for its huge number of elephants, baobab trees and tree climbing lions. Tarangire has the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem - a smorgasbord for predators –migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest, eland and of course 300 herds of elephants all of which crowd the shrinking lagoons. The park is also a haven for bird enthusiasts who can expect so see dozens of species (more than 500 species) even in the dry season. The swamps are the focus of the largest selection of breeding birds anywhere in the world. Yellow-collared Lovebirds are a common bird sighting in the trees along the Tarangire River. You will also discover the Kori bustard, the heaviest flying bird; the stocking-thighed ostrich, the world's largest bird; and small parties of ground hornbills blustering like turkeys. More ardent bird-lovers might keep an eye open for screeching flocks of the dazzlingly colorful yellow-collared lovebird, and the somewhat drabber rufous-tailed weaver and ashy starling – all endemic to the dry savannah of north-central Tanzania. The park is also famous for the termite mounds that dot the landscape. Those that have been abandoned are often seen to be home to colonies of dwarf mongoose and pairs of red and yellow barbet.
