Tour Highlights

You'll depart from Arusha after breakfast and begin the two hour drive to Tarangire National Park.

Along the way you'll take in the changing landscape as Arusha's urban jungle is replaced by wide open plains and quaint Masai villages. Checking in at the park offers a good chance to see mischievous monkeys darting about in the shade and you can also pose with a gigantic Baobab at the park's entrance.

Once inside the park, you'll see the eponymous Tarangire river lined with acacia and Baobab where game amble to and fro throughout the day. During the dry season, thousands of animals from the Masai steppe migrate to the Tarangire region looking for water so you can see dozens of different species in a small amount of time.

Exclusive to the park are endangered animals such as the Greater Kudu, Fringe-Eared Oryx, and the Ashy Starling.

Enjoy a picnic lunch at one of the park's picnic areas and take in an unparralelled view of the Tarangire River. Keep an eye on your food though, as the local monkey population will be only too happy to make off with a tasty treat if given the opportunity!

You'll return to Arusha late in the afternoon.

Tour Introduction

Tarangire is the least visited of the parks along Tanzania's northern circuit, and it's a crying shame. The park's large elephant population, iconic Baobab trees, and diversity of wildlife make it one of the best parks in the country for taking breathtaking photos or simply basking in the beauty of the world's largest land mammals. Game drives through Tarangire are particularly thrilling during the dry season when the animals of the park must cluster closer and closer to the Tarangire River. This offers a great opportunity to see plenty of animals in one place and to witness the predator-prey relationship in action.   Game drives through Tarangire are particularly thrilling during the dry season when the animals of the park must cluster closer and closer to the Tarangire River.

How many travellers are in a group and where are the other travellers from?

  • This is a private trip and hence the group will only consist of the people you chose to travel with

What type of vehicle will be used?

  • You will either be transported in a specially converted 4×4 minibus or
    4×4 safari vehicle (i.e. Toyota Landcruiser). During game drives the roof will open, ensuring unspoilt views.

Will I get something to eat and drink during the trip?

  • You will be provided with a lunch-box that can include sandwiches, boiled eggs and fruits or grilled chicken thighs. In addition thereto we will supply you with mineral water.
  • Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements or food allergies and we will do our outmost to cater for them (only possible with advanced notification).

Should I bring some cash money with me?

  • Yes you should bring along some cash for extras like drinks, snacks, souvenirs and tips.
  • Please make sure that your USD bills that have been printed after 2006 as any earlier dated bills will not be accepted.

What about tips?

  • Tipping after a safari is customary and we recommend 15-20 USD per day per group for the guide.

What are the visa requirements?

  • Although most nationalities can obtain a visa upon arrival in Tanzania, it is the sole responsibility of every traveller to be in possession of all required documents. We therefore strongly suggest that you contact your respective embassy for the latest visa regulations.

What vaccinations are needed and is Tanzania a malaria region?

  • Officially no vaccinations are required but seeing that Tanzania is located in a yellow fever region, we suggest getting a yellow fever vaccination for your own piece of mind.
  • Despite the fact that Tanzania does not require you to be vaccinated against Tetanus, Diphtheria, Polio or Hepatitis A&B, we would strongly advise to have those shots up to date.
  • Malaria is also a concern and we therefore recommend that some precautionary measures are taken. For more detailed information on prophylaxes and the effects and possible side effects, please contact your doctor or travel clinic.

A billion dollar experience on top of Africa 7 Days Kilimanjaro Machame Route Trek I started planning my long-awaited tour to Kilimanjaro by enquiring online and Alkebulan Travels Manager impressed me by providing prompt responses and professional advices as well as reasonable price. My solo tour was accompanied by Mountain guide Charles who has summitted Kilimanjaro More than 200 times with rich experiences. He and his team guided me all the way from rain forest, moorland, alpine desert to the snow capped summit with delicious and high energy food and hot water everyday. On the day of summit, thanks to the perfect guidance and encouragement of Charles, I was the first to reach the summit at 6:21 am on that day, much faster than any other climbing team, which was an unbelievable achievement for myself. Charles and another porter sang Hakuna Matata on top of Africa just for me to celebrate the moment! After summiting, Alkebulan Travels even organized a celebration party for me In Arusha, with all the porters, chef, waiter coming to share a cake of congratulations and the joy with me. Looking back, every detail of my trip was so perfect and I must attribute all my accomplishment during the tour to Impatiens tours, the best travel agency at the foot of Kilimanjaro
