Departing early from Arusha town around 07:30 - 08:00, you will cross the beautiful and picturesque Masai steppe to the Makuyuni junction and turn left along the Arusha - Dodoma highway towards the National Park Tarangire, one way drive will only take 2 hours at most. Arrive at the park gate in Tarangire and after your driver has done the paperwork, you start the driving game almost immediately from the gate with the aim of seeing as many animals and birds as possible.
Tarangire is known for two aspects, its tall baobab trees and larger herds of jumbo, but there's more to the park than just that. The park hosts a lot of large and small animal migration games (migrating between here and Manyara) but also many species of birds, some of which are very rare and are almost exclusively native to this park, for example like Ashy Starlings for example. Other erratic animal species include the oryx and the gerenuk. A variety of other common animals can be spotted including buffalo, giraffe, lion, cheetah, impala, dikdik, clouded leopard, antelope, eland, antelope (Kongoni) and many more.
Your expert hunting guide will take you to the best wildlife viewing areas in the park, including the Tarangire River, a permanent river that functions as the lifeblood of the park, ensuring that Animals flock to the riverbanks in search of water throughout the year. You expect to see elephants, eland, wildebeest, buffalo, zebra, gerenuk, giraffe and lots of birds. Lunch will be enjoyed at one of the picnic sites in the park. Late afternoon, you will leave the park and your guide will take you to Manyara/Karatu in Ngorongoro Highlands for dinner and overnight. Overnight in an economy tinted motel in Manyara/Karatu.
