Enjoy a morning game drive in Tarangire National Park. The park is known for its large herds of buffalo, as well as tree-climbing lions. This is one of Africa’s little-known gems and should be on the itinerary of all lovers of wilderness and solitude.

We will have lunch at the lodge, followed by transfer back to Arusha town.
