DAY 2 – TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK – ARUSHA - ZANZIBAR
After breakfast, we will start with your morning game drive.
Tarangire is a particularly enchanting prospect for bird-watchers, with a massive 550 species of bird calling the park home. These range from the sizable ostrich and Kori bustard all the way down to tiny weavers and warblers.
Predators such as the lion and leopard also call the park home, and lucky visitors might get to see these ferocious hunters in action as the dry season forces herbivores to move closer and closer to the Tarangire River.
After taking a delicious lunch, we'll drive back to Arusha to ensure you make your onward flight.
