Day 2: Full Game Drive in Tarangire National Park

The two-hour drive offers a picturesque view of the changing landscape, from the city’s urban jungle to the open plains and charming Masai villages.

The herds can even reach up to 300 animals, providing an impressive sight.
Located approximately 74.5 miles (120 km) from Arusha city and southeast of Lake Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park stretches along the Tarangire River and primarily consists of low-lying hills on the floor of the Great Rift Valley. The park’s natural vegetation comprises mainly Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with vast swamp areas in the south. During Tanzania’s dry season, both the river and swamps attract an abundance of wild animals.
The Tarangire River provides water all year round, and between July and October, numerous animals from surrounding areas come to the river to drink. Visiting the park during this dry season offers an unforgettable natural wonder and the opportunity to observe magnificent creatures such as lions, giraffes, buffaloes, wildebeests, zebras, and various types of antelopes and gazelles. With a little luck, spotting a python is also possible! The area is also a haven for bird watchers, with over 550 different species, including the Masai Ostrich, the world’s largest bird.
During our game drive in Tarangire, we will take a lunch break at a special spot offering great views of the national park. Keep an eye out for any nearby monkeys, as they may be interested in your lunch too! After lunch, we will continue our game drive safari and search for animals we haven’t spotted yet, aiming to cross off as many animal experiences as possible on our list.
