DAY TRIP - TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK
Your day tour begins with your hotel pickup at the morning, and heading south to stunning Tarangire National Park. We arrive at the Tarangire national park for game viewing, Afternoon you will stop for a picnic lunch. Your afternoon game-drive will reveal all the wonders of Tarangire, a National Park often referred to as the ‘Elephant Playground’. Herds of up to 300 of these mighty mammals are sometimes seen in the park.

Serengeti may be better known, but Tarangire in the dry season easily rivals it for animal densities. As well as the herds of elephant Tarangire is home to buffalo, lion, wildebeest, zebra and gazelle while gerenuk and fringe-eared Oryx are ‘local specialties’. Lake Burungi’s marshy shores are the lure for these mammals and the waters attract many beautiful bird species, too.

Look out for giant kingfishers, hoopoes and the delightfully-named white-bellied go-away bird. Tarangire is noted for its splendid baobab trees, rolling savannah and acacia woodland. At the end of an inspiring afternoon amongst the wildlife, drive back to your hotel in Arusha.

First, there’s the volcanic caldera (the world’s largest), full of grassland, forest and swamp, a setting of jaw-dropping beauty. Secondly, the permanent water of the crater floor supports a resident population of more than 25,000 large mammals.

Here you’ll find many of the reasons you choose to come on safari: elephant, lion, leopard, hyena, jackal, wallowing hippo, waterbuck, baboons… even the rare black rhino finds shelter here.

Sharing this awesome space with the animals are the Maasai, grazing their cattle in an area which has been a separate conservation area since 1956 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1978. This harmonious co-habitation of man and beast makes Ngorongoro unique in Tanzania and your driver guide will be pleased to explain this incredible co-existence to you and later afternoon drive back to your hotel in Arusha.

Kilimanjaro is the African continent’s best-known and highest mountain. With its snow-capped peak, it justifiably features on nearly every adventurer’s list of ‘must-dos.’

This route approaches Kilimanjaro from the southeast, crossing the slopes via a variety of fascinating landscapes including moorland and forest, before changing to alpine and arctic. We will be attempting to reach until the Mandara Hut and will only trek through the lower altitudes. At the lower altitudes, there are good opportunities to observe a wonderful variety of mammals, birds, insects and plant-life, including towering eucalyptus trees and Colobus monkeys.

Although no specialist climbing expertise or equipment is required, the ascent of ‘Kili’ does demand a reasonable level of fitness and some steely determination. It should never be underestimated, nor undertaken with anyone other than a reputable operator. We will have our picnic lunch on the way to the Mandara Hut. Once we reach Mandara Hut, we will stop for rest and then descent slowly back to Marangu Gate.

SED adventures tours and safaris vehicles, will be waiting to pick you up and return you to your hotel in Arusha.

Also present here are leopards and hyena, though an elephant sighting would be rare and lion are absent. But there is every chance to see giraffe and zebra, waterbuck and dik-dik.
