Pick up by our safari driver at Moshi, Springlands Hotel, or Similar, and then transfer to Tarangire National Park which is a 3-4 hour drive. This park is spectacular in the dry season when many of the migratory wildlife species come back to the permanent waters of the Tarangire River. 

Tarangire Park is popular for having the largest number of Elephant herds in Tanzania’s parks. Huge herds of wildebeest, zebras, elands, and oryx gather to stay in the Tarangire until the onset of the rain when they migrate again to good grazing areas.

In the late evening, you transfer back to your hotel in Moshi or Arusha for your drop-off.
