Many creatures

Before the rains, droves of gazelles, wildebeests, zebras, and giraffes migrate to Tarangire National Park’s scrub plains where the last grazing land still remains. Tarangire offers an unparalleled game viewing, and during the dry season elephants abound. Families of the pachyderms play around the ancient trunks of baobab trees and strip acacia bark from the thorn trees for their afternoon meal. Breathtaking views of the Maasai Steppe and the mountains in the south make a stopover at Tarangire a memorable experience

Famous

Located just a few hours drive from the town of Arusha, Tarangire is a popular stop for people travelling through the northern safari circuit on their way to Ngorongoro and the Serengeti. The park extends into two game controlled areas and the wildlife is allowed to move freely throughout.

Largest

Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It’s the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem - a smorgasbord for predators – and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed.

They hunt using bows and arrows, typically hunting baboons and other primates around. As well as the wild meat, the Hadzabe also survive on roots and tubers, and natural honey found in trees.

About Hadzabe Tribe

The Hadzabe people are an indigenous ethnic group living around Lake Eyasi, in the southern part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. There are estimated to only be around 1000 Hadzabe people living in Tanzania. This ethnic tribe are descendants of Tanzania’s aboriginal hunter gatherer populations, and still to this day rely on the land and their surroundings for survival..

They have their own method of harvesting honey, using a variety of mushroom called a ‘puff ball’ mushroom which when burnt lets off a smoke that has sedative effect on the bees.
