During the dry season, most of the migratory animals like zebras, wildebeests, elands, and buffalo in the Tarangire-Manyara Ecosystem are congregated in Tarangire National Park because the river and nearby waterholes are the only reliable and abundant source of drinking water in the region. Not surprisingly, these dense congregations of ungulates provide a bonanza of food for the park's population of African lions. The ungulates are well aware of the perils of being forced to congregate in a limited area, but they have no choice - they simply have to drink water to survive. They are always on the lookout for the hidden, lurking danger at the waterhole.
