Tarangire National Park
The first day we will pick you up from your hotel in (or around) Arusha. During the 2,5 hour drive you will enjoy the beautiful nature and landscapes. In Tarangire we’ll do a game drive before lunch. After lunch at the picnic site we’ll do a game drive all afternoon. Tarangire National Park is located 115 km south of Arusha, and is a long and narrow park that covers 2850 km2 and runs along the Tarangire River. The name of the park is also coming from the Tarangire River, which is the only source of water for wild animals during the dry season. The park is famous for its large number of elephants, baobab trees and tree climbing African pythons. During the dry months the concentration of animals around the Tarangire river is almost as diverse and reliable as in the Ngorongoro Crater. At the end of the afternoon we will arrive at Nsya lodge where you can relax at the swimming pool.

Lake Manyara is known for its breathtaking panoramic views, waterfalls, babbling brooks with clear water and hot springs. Lake Manyara National Park is located between the rocks of the Great Rift Valley and Lake Manyara. The beauty of this park is partly due to a large variety of wildlife, grasslands, forests and water.
