A LITTLE KNOWN GEM
You are picked up from your hotel in Arusha town in the morning and driven straight to Tarangire National Park, which is not one of the biggest of the Tanzanian parks, but its unrivalled landscape of open plains, dotted with thousands of baobabs, is unforgettable. About 100 miles south of Arusha, Tarangire is known for its tree-climbing lions and for its very big herds of buffalo.
This is one of Africa’s little-known gems and should be on the itinerary of all lovers of wilderness and solitude. The game numbers are staggering: 30,000 zebra, 25,000 wildebeest, 5,000 buffalo, 3,000 elephant, 2,500 Maasai giraffe and more than 1,000 fringe-eared oryx. Predators include lion, cheetah and leopard and birders can see the ashy starling, rufous-tailed weaver and black-collared lovebird. Lunch is included during this tour.
