4 Days safari Tanzania – Detailed Itinerary
Arusha to Tarangire National Park
Today very early in the morning, our representative who will double as your guide and drive will pick you up from your hotel in Arusha. He will brief you about this exciting tour and then begin the drive to Tarangire National Park. This small park offers very impressive views of wildlife. It has a nice vegetation cover that includes very huge baobab trees, large swamps and acacia woodland. There are also a number of very high termite mounds that are scattered across the park. During the dry season, the swamps and river Tarangire attract a very large number of wild animals, and because at the time the vegetation is thinning out, game viewing is very impressive. The park has one of the largest populations of the giant African elephants which can easily be sighted during the game drives. The African elephant is the largest living mammal on land, and the adult male ones can weigh up to seven tons. Some of the other animals you are likely to encounter in this park include: buffaloes, African lions, impalas, giraffes, cheetahs, warthogs, mongoose, red-bottomed baboons and ostriches. The greater kudu, fringe-eared Oryx and the Ashy starlings are among the unique wildlife species found in Tarangire National Park.
