Day 9: African Safari

I hope I see some lions and elephants! The Safari should be an awesome way to top off an epic adventure.

“Day 9. Transfer to the Tarangire National Park
We drive for 2 hours to the Tarangire National Park. Tarangire, bordered by the Rift Valley to the west and the Masai Steppe to the east. It is a dry park with one rainy season in March -April and it is also a hot park. There are good game viewing opportunities along the boabab-lined Tarangire River, particularly for elephant, lion and other large plains game. We spend the afternoon in an adapted vehicle, taking up the best viewpoints along the edge of the marsh, with the possibility of seeing large numbers of elephants. The waterholes attract lots of game and this is probably the best place to see lions hunting in the whole of East Africa. The park is also home to over 300 nesting bird species, which makes it one of the richest ornithological sites in the world. Overnight at the Tarangire Safari Lodge Tented camp, which is located on a ridge abovethe river.”
