After breakfast you are met by your tour guide, who will drive you to the Tarangire National Park taking along your picnic lunch. Tarangire derives its name from the Tarangire River which cuts accross the park and which provides permanent water for the wildlife and birdlife all year round. It is here where large groups of animal congregate during the dry season and is the best place to take many pictures.
