Day one Tarangire National Park
Your Tanzania safari adventure will begin with a pickup from your accommodation in Arusha. You will meet your driver guide and set off towards Tarangire National Park, one of the largest and most popular national parks in Tanzania.
Located in the Manyara region, Tarangire National Park is a unique and diverse ecosystem that is home to a vast array of wildlife. The park is known for its large herds of elephants, who can often be seen gathering around the Tarangire River to drink and bathe. In addition to the elephants, the park is home to a variety of other animals, including buffalo, zebras, giraffes, wildebeests, and antelopes.
One of the most iconic features of Tarangire National Park is its population of tree-climbing lions. These lions have developed the unique habit of climbing trees to escape the heat and insects on the ground, and can often be seen lounging in the branches of acacia trees.
Another notable feature of the park is its fascinating baobab trees, also known as the Tree of Life. These ancient trees are revered by many cultures for their almost mythical powers and have long been a symbol of life and renewal in Africa.
The Tarangire River flows through the park year-round, providing a vital source of water for the wildlife during the dry season when other water sources in the area have dried up. This makes Tarangire a great place for wildlife viewing, as the animals tend to congregate around the river in search of water.
As you explore the park with your driver guide, you will have the opportunity to witness the incredible wildlife and natural beauty of Tarangire National Park up close. You will also enjoy a picnic lunch within the park, surrounded by the stunning scenery and wildlife.
Overall, Tarangire National Park is an unforgettable destination that offers a unique and diverse safari experience. From the large herds of elephants to the tree-climbing lions and fascinating baobab trees, there is something for everyone to enjoy in this beautiful park.
