Day 1

Zanzibar to Tarangire National Park

Zanzibar to Tarangire National Park

Depending on where you’ll be staying in Zanzibar, a driver will come to pick you up at 5:00 a.m. and drive you to Abeid Amani Karume International Airport. You’ll arrive in Arusha at 9:20 a.m. where a professional guide will be waiting to greet and brief you on the journey you’re about to embark.

After the briefing, you'll then drive for 2 hours to Tarangire National Park.

Along the route, you'll see breathtaking views of grassland plains dotted with ancient baobab trees, traditional Maasai huts, and livestock herded by nomadic people.

Tarangire National Park is notable for its old baobab trees, tree-climbing pythons, and the biggest concentration of African elephants, lions, leopards, and cheetahs.

Following a midday picnic lunch, you will resume your afternoon game drive before driving to the beautiful Kankari Lodge for dinner and an overnight stay.
