- Elephant Champ Photo
On Saturday, August 3, Chelsea Clinton visited with WCS, Tanzanian National Park Rangers, and herds of elephants at Tarangire National Park.
This wooded savanna landscape in northern Tanzania is dotted with acacia and baobab trees. It supports large numbers of zebras, wildebeests, and elephants that migrate seasonally out of the protected areas to adjacent village lands. During the dry months the wildlife congregates around the Tarangire River, which provides the only permanent water in the area. When the rains come, the wildlife disperses to mineral-rich calving areas in the Simanjiro plains to the east and around Lake Natron to the north.
