Lunch will be provided for you by your guide and enjoyed within the grounds of the park. Later on you will hit the dirt path once more in search of more game viewing.

When you have had your fill of your first day of game driving, you will head to your accommodation. You will spend the night near the park, in preparation for another drive around Tarangire in the morning. Watch the sunset from your camp or lodge and enjoy some rest before your next day of game driving.

The crater is known for its high concentration of exciting animals, in no time you will be witnessing more spectacular sites as your driver hunts down anything you didn’t see before lunch.
