Day Two : Tarangire National Park
Tarangire National Park is a sprawling 2600 square kilometer expanse that is home to an incredible array of wildlife. The park is especially renowned for its large herds of elephants, which can be seen roaming through the grasslands and gathering near the Tarangire River. In addition to elephants, visitors to the park can also spot lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, wildebeest, zebras, giraffes, and many other animals.
One of the main draws of Tarangire National Park is its giant baobab trees, which can be found throughout the park and are estimated to be over a thousand years old. These ancient trees provide a striking contrast to the park’s savannah landscapes, and are a popular spot for photography and wildlife watching.
Your guide will be on hand to explain the unique features of the park, including why so many elephants choose to make their home in Tarangire. He will take you to the best spots for viewing the wildlife, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the animals and their behaviors.
The best time to visit Tarangire is during the dry season, which runs from June to October.

For an extra special experience, you may choose to view the wildlife from above by taking a hot air balloon ride.
On the way to Tarangire, you can make a stop in a picturesque Maasai village, where you can learn about the traditional way of life of this iconic African tribe.
