Day 2 of Tour

  • DAY 2: TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK
  • After breakfast start your safari with a drive west across the Maasai Plains from Arusha to Tarangire National Park.
  • Tarangire is one of the finest places in Tanzania to watch elephant and spending unhurried time in the presence of these intelligent giants, often from a vantage point at a waterhole or spring is one of the greatest pleasures of a wildlife safari.
  • It has been estimated that at the height of the dry season in October the density of large animals -elephant, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest,  ostrich,  giraffe,  eland  etc. is  second  only  to  Ngorongoro  Crater  worldwide. This spectacle gathers around the scattered pools of permanent water along the Tarangire river bed, and also around Silale Swamp.
  • Lion and leopard are frequently seen here aswell.
  • The huge baobab tree is characteristic of these savannas and have been described by naturalists as a complete ecosystem unto themselves; their nooks and crannies provide places for bee hives or are occupied by small mammals such as genet and civet cats, and their enormous flowers are pollinated by fruit bats.
  • Many baobabs are hollow and have provided shelter for wandering bands of hunter-gatherers in thepast.
  • This park is known as Elephants paradise the large herds of elephant and buffalo, resident predators, plentiful plains game and over 350 species of birds.  
  • At night you will enjoy the night sounds of the African bush.

Day 3 of Tour

  • DAY 3: TARANGIRE – LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK

  • Lake Manyara National Park lies in a very dramaticsettingupagainstthesteepwestern walloftheRiftValley.

  • There are at least 5 very different habitats existing side by side in an area of 325 sq km.
  • Therearecopiousgroundwater springs at one end, spilling out from the base of the  Rift Valley wall.
  • These give rise to a truly jungle type of ground-water forest, which is in stark contrast to the dry bush acacia woodlands all around, and to the enormous shallow alkaline lake that lies on the valley floor.
  • Then there is also the steep escarpment wall with its own boulder strewn habitat.
  • Enormous Baobabs are scattered throughout the drier parts.
  • In fact one of these baobabs was visited by Disney Imagineers in 1994 and became the inspiration for the baobabs that feature in Disney Worlds famous Animal Kingdom theme park in Orlando, Florida.
  • Most of the  East African mammals are found in Manyara including elephant, buffalo, hippo, lion, leopard, cheetah, giraffe and lots of plains game, and reputedly the largest baboon troupes in Africa.
  • Some lions have opted to rest up during the heat of midday in trees, giving rise to the mistaken belief that the Manyara lions are somehow different.
  • Lions in many parts of Africa often spend time on the lower broad limbed branches of trees probably to escape flies.
