Plan your journey

Location

Kuro is situated on the banks of the Tarangire river right in the centre of the conservation park, making it a great vantage point for observing local wildlife as it negotiates the river line north to south, or travels east from the western hills. The Kuro Tarangire camp can be conveniently accessed via the Kuro Airstrip.

Rooms

With just six rooms, Kuro is a very small and intimate camp. Three rooms sit on either side of the main lodge, and are adequately distanced so as to ensure privacy. The rooms themselves are constructed from woven sisal, thatch and canvas, complementing the surrounding bush, and the interiors are spacious and elegantly decorated, with comfortable beds, seating and homely rugs lining the floor. All tents have an en-suite bathroom featuring a bucket shower, as well as a private veranda.

Communal Areas

The understated natural look continues into the communal lounge and dining area, which are open structures made from exposed thatch. These airy rooms invite nature inside, yielding an uninterrupted vista over the surrounding plains and their wildlife. The rustic thatch is softened with well-cushioned sofas, rugs, and leather detailing, all in subtle, earthy tones.

Wooden partitions separate the lounge from the dining area, which also houses a bar, and guests can choose to dine in the communal dining area or on the shaded terrace.

Activities

The area’s great resident wildlife means drives are worthwhile here, particularly given the renowned elephant population, which is drawn to the Tarangire river in the dry season. As well as the usual daytime drives, Kuro also offers bushwalks and night drives, which can be a real highlight of an otherwise vehicle-based safari trip.

DRY SEASON

A brief dry interlude before the long rains arrive in late March.

After the short rains, wildlife tends to be less concentrated, while vegetation is lush and thick, a combination that makes game-viewing more difficult. On the other hand, the colours of the park are a lot more impressive after the rains, and the large volume of insects draws in migratory birds who will be in their full breeding colours.

Its proximity to the equator means that Tarangire National Park has very consistent temperatures throughout the year. While the high altitude (985 to 1,528m/3,232 to 5,013ft) moderates these to an average midday high of 26°C/79°F to 29°C/84°F throughout the year, the mornings can be a little chilly, so be sure to bring a light fleece!

There are two wet seasons in Tanzania. The first, known as the ‘long rains’, takes place between March and May, while the milder short rains take place between November and December.

Tarangire is a park that comes into its own during the drier times of the year, when animals migrate into the park from the surrounding areas. During the wetter months (December – May), wildlife is less concentrated and vegetation is much thicker, reducing game viewing opportunities.

WET SEASON - 'LONG RAINS'

The beginning and end of the rains varies each year, but generally, this period is the wettest time of the year. Travel to and from lodges is potentially difficult at times. This wet season is often characterised by overcast skies and consecutive days of rain.

Wildlife is at its most dispersed by this stage, and the vegetation will be thick and high throughout the park. Travellers looking to experience a ‘classic’ safari should avoid this time of year, however if you are seeking great birding, these months deliver exactly what you are looking for.

DRY SEASON

This is a more stable and predictable time of the year, usually with clear skies. During this period the land gradually dries up following the long rains. As this happens, wildlife migrates back to the park. This increase in wildlife density combined with thinning vegetation makes this the perfect time to visit Tarangire.

WET SEASON - 'SHORT RAINS'

This is a rather unpredictable time of the year, with occasional heavy showers or thunderstorms interspersing the sunny spells. Though technically the wet season, the rains are not as intense during this period as during the long rains, making it a good time to visit Tarangire.

Tarangire is a seasonal park; when the rain arrives it disperses the wildlife, making the dry season far preferable. These wet months can be good too, provided rainfall totals are not too high, and the added bonus is that migratory birds will be present within the park.
