Day 1
Tarangire National Park
Day 1: Tarangire National Park

If we didn't get a chance to talk about your safari plans when you arrived yesterday, we'll catch up on them after breakfast today, either at your hotel or as soon as you arrive at the airport. After that, we're heading to Tarangire National Park, which is about a two-hour drive from Arusha. During the drive, you'll see a lot of Tanzania's stunning landscapes.

Tarangire is well-known for its many elephants - it's a real elephant hotspot! But that's not all; you'll also have the chance to see buffalo, lions, wildebeest, and a variety of other animals. Keep an eye out for less common animals like kudu and oryx, as well as smaller creatures such as colorful lizards and hyraxes. If you love birds, you're in for a treat with many different kinds to spot, like the vibrant lilac-breasted roller and the large ostrich. The park is also known for its huge baobab trees and expansive grasslands. After a full day of animal watching, we'll return to our camp for dinner and a good night's sleep.

Later, you'll go on a drive around the park. Tarangire is famous for its many elephants and big baobab trees. These trees are very old and help elephants get water when it's dry. Also, the Tarangire River is the only place to find water in dry times, so lots of elephants and animals come here.

You're set to see animals on drives in the morning and afternoon. If you want more adventures like breakfast in the wild, visiting a local village, getting a massage, or a night-time animal drive, you can book these at your place for an extra cost. Tarangire has so much to offer!
