It provides unique chances to observe the interaction between elephant families. We will do a game drive through the park, depending on where there are reported sightings of animals (mostly predators like lions, cheetahs & leopards, as they are harder to spot). The herbivores like giraffes, wildebeests, zebras, etc. are plentiful and easy to spot in the park.
Later on, we will go to the Tarangire River picnic site and enjoy the beautiful view of the river & animals while having lunch. Small monkeys & baboons will try to scare you off your lunch, but you don't have anything to worry about. After lunch, we will proceed with the game drive & exit the park around 4:30 pm.
