Pick up from your Hotel after breakfast and proceed to Tarangire National park. The park gate is located roughly 120 kilometers barely 2 hours from Arusha town. This is the third largest park in Tanzania and it is characterized by the amazingly large herds of elephants that can be encountered in this park. Tarangire is superb in season but questionable the rest of the year. Elephants are the main attraction, with up to 3,000 in the park during the peak months. Peak season also sees good numbers of wildebeest and zebra as well as giraffe, buffalo, Thompson’s gazelle, greater and lesser kudu, eland, leopard and cheetah.

Day 3: Full game drive at Tarangire National Park

After breakfast, we go on a walking safari at the park escorted by an armed ranger. In the afternoon, we go on a game drive. Tarangire National Park is a lovely, quiet park in Northern Tanzania. It is most famous for its elephant migration, birding and authentic safari atmosphere. The majority of travelers to the region either miss out Tarangire altogether or venture into the park for a matter of hours – leaving swathes of Tarangire virtually untouched!

Day 4: Lake Manyara National Park

Depart from your lodge and proceed to Lake Manyara National Park. The park is near the Tarangire national park about 75 kilometers apart. The park’s main attraction are Lake Manyara’s famous tree climbing lions – why these lions habitually climb trees is still up for debate, but viewing a pride relaxing in an acacia tree is a remarkable sight! The park is also famous for its elephant and a huge number of baboons, and its varied landscape supports an impressive range of other game Although small in size, this park is one of the most diverse reserves in the country. Lake Manyara covers two-thirds of the park. At the backdrop is the wall of the Great Rift Valley, before which lies the ground water forest, areas of open grassland near the lake foreshore, and the Soda Lake. We enjoy a picnic lunch in this area.

A healthy population of black rhino and some of the largest tusker elephants left in Africa today are the prize spots, but the crater is also home to good populations of lion, leopard and hyena along with healthy herds of wildebeest, buffalo and zebra.
