Tarangire National Park and the Tarangire River are flooded with water and wildlife. Even in the dry season the river still flows making it a magnet for thirsty wildlife including elephant, wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland.
TARANGIRE DAY TOUR
In the morning after breakfast, we’ll pick you up from your hotel in Arusha and drive you to the National Park taking a packed lunch for your day game drive. It’s about a two-hour drive so you’ll be able to enjoy the scenery and chat with your guide on the way.
When we get there and start the game drive we’ll be looking out for the famous Tarangire tree-climbing pythons and leopards which could be lounging in the branches of a sausage tree.
The scenery is classic Africa and you’ll feel as if you’re on a movie set surrounded by giant baobab trees and many different varieties of acacia or thorn tree.
The park is home to large herds of elephant, zebra, wildebeest, giraffes and buffalo but we’ll also be looking out for birds and should be able to spot some of the 550 bird species found here which include the kori bustard, the heaviest flying bird in the world, and ostriches.
We’ll have lunch in the park and carry on our game drive until the late afternoon when we’ll drive you back to Arusha and your hotel. It’s been a long, exciting day and you’ll have a lot of amazing stories to share.
Please note all day trips are for a minimum of two people.
