Tarangire: Randilen WMA

With our properties in some of the most biodiverse areas on the continent, Elewana Collection embraces the responsibility of protecting the wildlife in the surrounding habitats. Elewana Tarangire Treetops is located in a private Wildlife Management Area (WMA) called Randilen. We are one of
the largest contributors to the conservation projects of Randilen WMA, administered by the Honeyguide Foundation.

With the growing population, it has become even more important to support WMA's like Randilen, encouraging communities to live in harmony with wildlife that is sustainable. The communities in the area benefit from; crop protection, grazing plan, support in education, healthcare clinics and they receive a percentage of the revenue made so they realise the value of preserving this area to ensure future generations can marvel at the wildlife and the stunning landscape. This is a ‘win-win’ for all involved; the Randilen communities benefit financially as well from additional support, the WMA and Elewana Tarangire Treetops further their objectives to develop sustainable tourism, and equally important, the wildlife in the area are protected.

Understanding the significance of grazing land to the Maasai is key, they place great value on their cattle, the more cows a Masai owns the more wives he can acquire and in turn more children, which elevates his wealth and status in the community. This has an impact on the land, as communities get larger so do the cattle and land becomes increasingly scarce. By allocating and improving pasture land for their cattle benefits wildlife too.

In supporting the Randilen Community Elewana Tarangire Treetops has a unique opportunity, located in one of the most beautiful areas and offering exclusive activities. By staying at Elewana Tarangire Treetops, visitors contribute to the WMA and thereby complete the cycle and reinforce the benefits of sustainable tourism.

Tarangire - Basic Facts

Size / Area : 2850 sq km (1,096 sq miles).


Location : 118 km (75 miles) southwest of Arusha.

In Brief : 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.

Tarangire National Park is the sixth largest national park in Tanzania. The name of the park originates from the Tarangire river that crosses through the park, being the only source of water for wild animals during dry seasons. During the dry season thousands of animals migrate to the Tarangire National Park from Manyara.

It lies a little distance to the south east of Lake Manyara and covers an area of approximately 2,850 square kilometers(1,100 square miles.) The landscape and vegetation is incredibly diverse with a mix that is not found anywhere else in the northern safari circuit. The hilly landscape is dotted with vast numbers of Baobab trees, dense bush and high grasses.

Flora & Fauna

The park is famous for its huge number of elephants, baobab trees and tree climbing lions. Visitors to the park can expect to see any number of resident zebra and wildebeest in addition to the less common animals. Other common animals include waterbuck, giraffe, and olive baboons.

Home to more than 550 species, the park is a haven for bird enthusiasts who can expect so see dozens of 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.

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 dwarf mongoose.

The Park in Seasons

During the rainy season, the seasonal visitors scatter over a 20,000 sq km (12,500 sq miles) range until they exhaust the green plains and the river calls once more. But Tarangire's mobs of elephant are easily encountered, wet or dry.
The swamps, tinged green year round, are the focus for 550 bird varieties, the most breeding species in one habitat anywhere in the world.

In the dry season the fierce sun sucks the moisture from the landscape, baking the earth a dusty red, the withered grass as brittle as straw. The Tarangire River has shrivelled to a shadow of its wet season self. But it is choked with wildlife. Thirsty nomads have wandered hundreds of parched kilometres knowing that here, always, there is water.

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.

Abundant Birdlife

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 colourful yellow-collared lovebird, and the somewhat drabber rufous-tailed weaver and ashy starling – all endemic to the dry savannah of north-central Tanzania.

Naturally Disguised

Disused termite mounds are often frequented by colonies of the endearing dwarf mongoose, and pairs of red-and-yellow barbet, which draw attention to themselves by their loud, clockwork-like duetting.

Tarangire's pythons climb trees, as do its lions and leopards, lounging in the branches where the fruit of the sausage tree disguises the twitch of a tail.
