Like the other maps from the series of Veronica Roodt, the Tourist Map of Tarangire National Park also is based on satellite photos. The cartographic design displays the map information with strong accents.
The main map and the enlarged map of Tarangire River show a grid of parallels and meridians with degree data and refer to tables with altogether 92 GPS coordinates. The legend refers to park boundaries, main game drive routes, secondary game drive that require 4x4, gas stations, look-out points, places of interest, picnic sites, shops, public, NCA and special camp sites, lodges, rangers posts, airstrips, bridges and distance legs.
The reverse side of the map provides information about the National Park. 53 mammal, 120 bird and 20 common plant species are introduced, each shown on a colour photo. Information boxes explain the park regulation of the National Park of Tarangire and provide general and specific information, like on the natural history, the fauna and flora, the migration patterns and the ecosystem.
