Oh, Tarangire! The wildlife viewing here is wonderful, plenty of large mammals and incredible bird life.

Serenely floating over this landscape is nourishment for the soul. We love to fly here because it has such a different feel to Serengeti, it's less of a journey and more of an immersion in the scenery, aural vista and the peace of scanning for the wildlife below.

Where we Fly

The winds in Tarangire are soft, our flights here are gentle, slow and full of peace. You can gaze over the landscape, edged with mountains and ranges of hills as you drift from the Silale swamp, vibrant with wildlife, over the ridges and down to the baobab studded Tarangire river. On your way, look for herds of buffalo, Tarangire's famous elephants, as well as Zebra, eland, waterbuck and impala, whilst immersing yourself in the soundscape of the thousands of doves calling from below.

More about Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park, nestled in Northern Tanzania, boasts a rich tapestry of vibrant ecosystems. Dominated by the life-giving Tarangire River, this sanctuary becomes a verdant haven in the dry season, enticing throngs of wildlife. Majestic baobabs, some centuries-old, dot the landscape, their silhouettes etched against the expansive sky. Herds of elephants amble through grasslands, while lions lounge in the shade. Birds embellish the skies with a kaleidoscope of color, completing the park’s dynamic biodiversity. Tarangire's canvas melds dusty earth with the vivid greens of swamps, creating a refuge abundant with serenity and life.
