Tarangire National Park Day Trip
The Tarangire national park day trip will leave you with unforgettable memories and a lifetime experience as it is one of the most famous and visited parks in Tanzania. The park has a large number of herd elephants with giant baobab trees this is why the park is also known as “The home of giants.
Day1: Arusha – Tarangire National Park
You’ll be picked up from your starting point or accommodation in Arusha and begin your journey which will take a two-hour drive to reach the Tarangire National Park entrance gate. Along the way, you’ll soak up the changing landscape as Arusha’s urban jungle is replaced by wide open plains and quaint Masai villages. Checking in at the park offers an opportunity to see mischievous monkeys darting about within the shade and you’ll also pose with a huge 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 from throughout the day.
During the dry period, thousands of animals from the Maasai steppe migrate to the Tarangire region trying to find water so you can see dozens of different species in a small amount of time.
Exclusive to the park are endangered animals like the Kudu, Fringe-Eared Oryx, and also the Ashy Starling. Enjoy a picnic lunch at one of the park’s picnic areas and absorb an unparalleled view of the Tarangire River. Keep an eye on your food though, because the local monkey population is going to be too happy to create off with a tasty treat if given the opportunity! You’ll be back in Arusha late afternoon.
