Day 1: Arusha to Tarangire National Park

In the morning you will be picked up from your lodge, and you will travel to the Tarangire National Park. This park with its huge baobab trees, the perennial Tarangire River, and seasonal swamps is home to the largest elephant herds in northern Tanzania.

Animals gather at the river and you should be able to see elephants, giraffes, bushbucks, hartebeests, dik-diks, waterbucks, warthogs, and reedbucks all year round. Furthermore, the park is also home to buffalos, zebras, and wildebeests, which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions.

Leopards are seen every once in a while, but cheetahs are rarely spotted. From the open roof of the vehicle, you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. After an extensive game drive, you will leave the park in the late afternoon and drive to the Ngorongoro O’ldeani Mountain Lodge, where you will spend the night. Lunch and dinner is included in this day.
