The semi-arid yet diverse landscape of the park is marked by rich vistas of acacia woodlands, giant baobab trees, rolling plains, and granite kopjes. The incredible diversity and density of wildlife includes in its fold, large herds of elephants, predators like lions, leopards, hyenas, the occasional cheetah and the rare and endangered wild dogs besides swarms of yellow-breasted lovebirds to kudus, buffaloes, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, and impalas offer great game viewing spectacles and photography opportunities sitting atop your safari vehicle. Game drives are better during the dry season when the predator and prey converge around the perennial Tarangire River to wet their tongue and intense drama of the predator-prey relationship starts to unfold.

Itinerary

After breakfast, you will start you two hour drive to Tarangire National Park. As you travel you will find the urban landscape of Arusha give way to wide open plains encrusted with quaint Masai villages. Entering the park you can spot the mischievous primates upto their tricks and catch the sight of the majestic Baobab at the park’s entrance. Inside the park, you’ll see the perennial Tarangire river surrounded by acacia and Baobab trees. The river is the only source of water and vital for the animals of the region. During the dry season, it acts as a watering hole attracting a large number of animals abounding the park and nearby Masai steppes which sets the stage for some riveting game viewing. Large herds of elephants ambling lazily on undulating savannah grasslands form the premier highlight and the presence of lions, numerous buffaloes and leopard make it a quadruple delight. The rare and endangered species of Kudus, Oryx Ashy starlings are also exclusive to the park. Have a picnic lunch and take a guided walk but watch out for the frolicking baboons and the resident vervet monkeys who are always ready today away with your food.
