Day 02: Tarangire National park
After breakfast you will drive to Tarangire National Park for a full day game drive. Tarangire’s landscape is incredibly diverse with a mix that is not found anywhere else on the northern safari circuit. It is dotted with ancient baobab trees, which the Maasai people believe are the first tree in creation, and large termite mounds. The dry season sees the harsh sun suck the moisture from the landscape, baking the earth a dusty red while the wet season brings dense bush and luscious high grasses. Famous for its large elephant population, it is also home to zebras, wildebeest, giraffes, waterbuck, baboons, mongoose, impala, buffalo and antelope. Predators include lion, cheetah and leopard. The swamps are shared by flocks of birds; green woodhoopoes, lovebirds, tallish herons, white bellied go-away birds and giant kingfishers. Accommodation: Eileen’s Tree Inn Meal plan: Full Board
