  • Activities and Interest: Cultural & Wildlife
  • Tarangire National Park, home to Tanzania’s largest elephant population, is a fascinating park during the dry season when the Tarangire River becomes a vital source of water for animals throughout the region. As vast herds of wildebeest and zebra move to the river to replenish, the park’s lions, leopards, and hyenas capitalise in a dynamic display of nature’s cruel beauty.
  • It’s then on to the world famous Ngorongoro Conservation Area, where cape buffalo, rhinoceros, and hippopotamus can be spotted amid the caldera’s verdant plains. A picnic lunch by the hippo pool is a rare treat, allowing you to have a meal within a few dozen feet of these intimidating herbivores.
