Day 1: Arusha Tanzania-Tarangire National Park
Your day tour begins with your hotel pickup at the morning, and heading south to stunning Tarangire National Park. We arrive at the Tarangire national park for game viewing. In the afternoon, you will stop for a picnic lunch. Your afternoon game drive will reveal all the wonders of Tarangire, a national park often referred to as the ‘Elephant Playground’. Herds of up to 300 of these mighty mammals are sometimes seen in the park.
The Serengeti may be more popular, but Tarangire in the dry season easily rivals it for animal densities. As well as the herds of elephant Tarangire is home to buffalo, lion, wildebeest, zebra and gazelle while gerenuk and fringe-eared Oryx are ‘local specialties’. Lake Burungi’s marshy shores are the lure for these mammals and the waters attract many beautiful bird species, too.
Look out for giant kingfishers, hoopoes and the delightfully-named white-bellied go-away bird. Tarangire is noted for its splendid baobab trees, rolling savannah and acacia woodland. At the end of an inspiring afternoon amongst the wildlife, drive back to your hotel in Arusha.
