We are pleased to confirm that the Wildlife hide in the Randilen Wildlife Management Area is now complete and ready for visitors. It has a great viewing area under ground for close encounters with the animals visiting the water hole, giving guests opportunities for some great low angle photographers of elephants, plains game or a number of other animals that seek refreshment.
Alternatively for avid birders, this is a chance to enjoy some of northern Tanzania’s finest birding. The acacia woodland habitat and plains with fever-tree groves support a variety of species, including three Tanzanian endemics and near-endemics: Ashy Starling, Yellow-collared Lovebird, and Rufous-tailed Weaver. The lush grasses are full of ground birds like Northern White-bellied Bustard and both Red-necked and Yellow-necked Francolins.
Randilen is a community Wildlife Management Area (WMA) managed and governed by the Maasai community. It is land that they have set aside, to improve their lives and ensure their children’s futures. We protect this unique area so that it continues to support the people and wildlife that depend on it. Your stay contributes to the sustainability of the wildlife and Tarangire Ecosystem as a whole.
