You will be picked up from your hotel in Arusha at 0830am and drive on tarmac road 120km to Tarangire National Park (2,850 sq. km) for game drives. It has the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem. The swamps, tinged green year round, are the focus for 550 bird varieties, the most breeding species in one habitat anywhere in the world. After lunch, continue with afternoon game viewing in the park, a home to lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, python, zebra, oryx, impala, and more. On drier ground you will find the Kori bustard, the heaviest flying bird; the stocking-thigh ostrich, the world’s largest bird; and small parties of ground horn-bills blustering like turkeys. More ardent bird-lovers might keep an eye open for screeching flocks of the dazzlingly colorful yellow-collared lovebird, and the somewhat drabber Rufus-tailed weaver and ashy starling. Dinner and overnight will be at Panorama Campsite.
