Day 1: Tarangire National Park

Ok, let’s begin this journey!

From your starting point (usually, it’s either Kilimanjaro airport or Arusha airport or Arusha town), it takes about 2-3 hours to get there.

I really recommend not to skip this park, since Tarangire National Park is definitely worth visiting. You can see herds of elephants and lots of baobab trees. You can see various types of antelopes, even maybe a lion, if lucky. Since we were there during dry season, all the trees were without leaves, but anyway the landscape is really beautiful there.

I would say that this park looked very quiet and relaxed, all the animals were a bit of lazy, and for the first day in Africa it was exactly what we needed. Just to get used to the surroundings and feel comfortable about safari.

19. One of my favorite animals: Warthog! They are so funny to watch 🙂 This one is standing on his knees because his head is too heavy, so he doesn’t have to bend his neck.
