On arrival at the park, check in and drive through the gigantic Baobab at the entrance, see the mischievous monkeys darting about in the shade. Continue inside the park to the Tarangire river that is lined with acacia and Baobab where wildlife cluster all day long. With the river being a collective point for most of the wildlife from the Masai steppe, this is a good point to see lots of wildlife in a short period of time. Some of the animals that can be spotted here include the Greater kudu, Fringe-Eared Oryx and the Ashy Starling.

After the game drive, have picnic lunch with a view of the Tarangire River, but be watchful of your food as the monkeys will roam around. After lunch have another game drive then transfer back to Arusha.
