Day Trip to Tarangire National Park

Day Trip to Tarangire National Park

After breakfast, you’ll depart from Arusha and begin the two-hour drive to Tarangire National Park. Along the way, you’ll take in the changing landscape as Arusha’s urban jungle is replaced by wide open plains and quaint Masai villages.

Tarangire National Park has the highest density of elephants in North Tanzania, and you can view these animals all year round, in which the herds often can reach an impressive number of 300 animals.

Tarangire National Park is Located about 74.5 miles (120 km) from Arusha, and southeast of Lake Manyara National Park, The park runs along the line of the Tarangire River and is mainly made up of low-lying hills on the Great Rift Valley floor. Its natural vegetation mainly consists of Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with huge swamp areas in the south. Both the river and the swamps act like a magnet for wild animals, during Tanzania’s dry season.

The Tarangire River has water all year round and during the dry season, between July and October, many animals from the surrounding areas come to the river for drinking. If you visit the park during the dry season, you will witness an unforgettable natural wonder as you can observe wonderful creatures such as lions, giraffes, buffaloes, wildebeests, and zebras,

As well as various types of antelopes and gazelles and with a little luck, you can also spot a python! This area during the dry season is also a haven for bird watchers with over 550 different species including the Masai Ostrich -the world’s largest bird.

Halfway through our day trip in Tarangire, we will have a lunch break at our special spot where we can enjoy some great views overlooking the national park. Watch out for any monkeys nearby, as they’ll like your lunch too!

After our lunch break, we will continue with our Game drive safari and try to find the animals that we might not have spotted yet, so we can cross as many animal experiences as possible on our list. At the end of the day, we will get ready for the drive back to Arusha.

This Day trip is both possible as a private excursion or it is possible to join a group. If you’d like to join a group. Please send us an inquiry and we will find a group for you to join!
