After breakfast this morning, you will meet with your driver guides for a short safari briefing and begin your safari to Tarangire National park, an interesting drive, passing through small villages along the way with different landscape to admire. The game viewing starts as soon as you enter the national park gates, as you enjoy a game drive in Tarangire National park, a park well known for its large herds of elephants and giant baobab trees. We will find a spot for a hot packed lunch under a tree in the park and later in the afternoon, and after an exciting day in the park you will drive to your camp for dinner and overnight, arriving to the camp in the late evening to catch the sun sets over the Great Rift Valley.
The opportunity to observe an elephant with no other vehicles around is a rarity in African national parks – but one that can still occur in Tarangire. This park is proudly home to some of Tanzania’s largest herds of elephant, which wander gracefully among populations of lions, leopards and cheetah. This park is also distinguished from its northern sisters by its unique ecosystem, which supports unique wildlife including the oryx and the gerenuk – two ancient looking antelope who favor dry grassland. The Kori Bustard is another unique and impressive sighting in this landscape, given that it is the world’s heaviest flying bird.
