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.
