Tarangire offers unparalleled game viewing

After spending a night in Arusha, drive to Tarangire National Park which offers unparalleled game viewing especially in the dry season when elephants abound.

The breathtaking views of the Maasai Steppe and the mountains in the south make a stopover at Tarangire National Park a memorable experience. Large herds of elephant can be seen scratching the dry river beds for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. Tarangire is renowned for dry-country antelope. It's here where you can observe the Fringe-eared Oryx as well as the Long-necked Gerenuk. After exploring in the wild, relax in the Nimali Tarangire for two nights with all your meals and local drinks included.
