4 Days Wildlife Safari in Tanzania – DETAILED SAFARI ITINERARY

Day 1: Drive to Tarangire National Park for Afternoon Game Drive.

Your 4 days wildlife safari in Tanzania starts at 8.00 am. Your tour driver guide shall pick you up from your hotel in Arusha and take you on a slow drive southwest through local villages and plantations to Tarangire National Park.

You arrive in time for lunch and then it is off to explore. Tarangire is a massive (2850km2) but little-visited reserve that is home to tree-climbing lions, fringe-eared Oryx, Dwarf Mongoose, and the curious long-necked gerenuk.

It is also the best place in East Africa to see enormous baobab trees, which easily withstand Tarangire’s elephants peeling off hunks of bark to eat. The park has Tanzania’s biggest elephant herds and supports large numbers of buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, and antelopes, which are best visible during the dry season when animal concentrations at the life-giving Tarangire River are at their peak.

And with an amazing 550 bird species on record, Tarangire is a birdwatcher’s paradise. After a game drive, settle in at your comfortable lodge, enjoy dinner and then have a good night’s rest; there is much excitement ahead!

This Africa’s most famous park is unrivaled in its primitive natural beauty and fantastic abundance of plains game. Throughout the ages, naturalists and writers have singled out this very special park in their paeans of praise. And with good reason!  Here, since time immemorial, the largest overland animal migration on earth takes place. Herds of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles numbering more than a million stretch to the horizon in long slender lines.

The migration sustains such a huge number of predators like Lions, Leopards, Cheetahs, and Hyenas, along with a host of smaller species from vultures to dung beetles. No words can adequately describe this stronghold of wildlife.

The Serengeti has some of the world’s best bird-watching, with more than 500 species identified. During his famous study of the Serengeti lion, George Schaller counted no less than 3,000. You travel the leopard circuit, where the chances of sighting this shy cat are greater here than anywhere else in Africa.

After the game drive, return to your camp for lunch.
