A midday picnic offers a delightful meal and a chance to witness wildlife congregating around the Tarangire River from an observatory with stunning views—where the thrill of a hunt may unfold before you.

As dusk falls, continue your exploration of Tarangire, known for its significant elephant population and the majestic baobab trees dotting its nearly 3000 sq km expanse. The park’s lifeblood, the Tarangire River, draws herds from across the park during the dry season, making it a rival to the Serengeti for its wildlife spectacle.
