DAY TO DAY
Day 1: Arusha- Tarangire National Park ( day and night Game drive )
Arrive in Arusha and be picked up from Kuro Airstrip by your guide, followed by a full day game drive in Tarangire National Park. In the afternoon, your driver will prepare and set a very delicious lunch. Continue with game drive until evening, then drive to the Camp Acacia Tarangire Luxury Camp for dinner and overnight.
The Park Located slightly off the main safari route, Tarangire National Park is a lovely, quiet park in Northern Tanzania that is most famous for its elephant migration, birding and quiet, authentic safari atmosphere. The majority of travelers to the region either miss out on Tarangire altogether or venture into the park for a matter of hours, leaving parts of Tarangire virtually untouched.
Every year during the dry season from June to November, Tarangire hosts a wildlife migration which is not as dramatic as the Wildebeest Migration in the Serengeti but still receives a somewhat large number of animals. As most of this part of the country is dry, the Tarangire River remains the only source of water and consequently attracts large numbers of wildebeests, elephants, gazelles, zebras, and hartebeest, buffaloes, plus various predators like lions that come to drink and graze around the river banks. The zebras as well as large herds of wildebeests move in the north-western direction towards the Rift Valley floor amongst the large numbers of animals that are spread across the large open areas of the Masaai Steppe and disperse all the way to Lake Manyara.
Day 2: Tarangire national Park ( Hot Air Balloon Safari+ Game Drive)
Early morning hot air balloon safari; after breakfast, another full day game drive at Tarangire National Park with lunch; in the evening, back to the Acacia Tarangire Luxury Camp for dinner and overnight.
Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams. It’s the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem—a smorgasbord for predators—and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed. The permanent Tarangire River is the most dominant feature here, and it’s after this river that the park was named. There are a number of large swamps that feed off some of its tributaries. However, these are usually dry for most of the year but get very impassable during the rains. The Tarangire park is usually very dry, in fact drier than the Serengeti, but its vegetation is much more green, especially with lots of elephant grass, vast areas with mixed acacia woodlands and some of the wonderful ribbons of the aquatic forest. Not to forget the giant baobab tree that can live up to 600 years, storing between 300 and 900 liters of water.

This short safari can be stand-alone or can be added to your existing itinerary. Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area are some of the top birding spots in Tanzania.
Serengeti is easily Tanzania’s most famous national park, and it’s also the largest, at 14,763 square kilometers of protected area that borders Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Park.
The Great Wildebeest Migration is one of the most breath-taking sights nature has to offer. About 2.5 million wildebeest, zebra, and antelope follow the rains between the lush grasslands of Masai Mara
