What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Babati, tanzania, Tarangire National Park 3134 Tanzania

You'll depart from Arusha after breakfast 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. Checking in at the park offers a good chance to see mischievous monkeys darting about in the shade and you can also pose with a gigantic Baobab at the park's entrance.
Once inside the park, you'll see the eponymous Tarangire river lined with acacia and Baobab where game amble to and fro throughout the day. During the dry season, thousands of animals from the Masai steppe migrate to the Tarangire region looking for water so you can see dozens of different species in a small amount of time.
Exclusive to the park are endangered animals such as the Greater Kudu, Fringe-Eared Oryx, and the Ashy Starling.
Enjoy a picnic lunch at one of the park's picnic areas and take in an unparralelled view of the Tarangire River. Keep an eye on your food though, as the local monkey population will be only too happy to make off with a tasty treat if given the opportunity!
You'll return to Arusha late in the afternoon.

It was a great one-day safari with Loma as my guide. As we drove to the park, Loma explained aspects of the local culture (e.g., Massai warriors) to me, the local economy, and more. Our pleasant conversations continued into Tarangire national park, while Loma introduced...More
