Due to time constraints and budget one may want to take a short 2 days safari Tanzania, which made us come up with a range of 2 days / 1 night safari packages in the most interesting Tanzania safari parks. This 2 days Tanzania Safari in particular is one of the best short safaris in Tanzania because it offers you such enormous opportunity to see as much wildlife as possible and believe it or not you get a rare chance to even spot the Big 5 in such a short period.
Day 1: Arusha – Tarangire National Park
Depart early from Arusha town at around 07.30 – 08.00hrs you will drive across a beautiful and scenic Masai Steppe to Makuyuni junction and take left along the Arusha – Dodoma Highway towards Tarangire National Park, a drive that will take only 2 hours at most. Arrive at the parks gate at Tarangire and after your driver has sorted out the paperwork you start game drives almost straight away from the gate in a bid to see as many animals and birds a possible. Your professional safari guide will take you to the best wildlife spotting areas of the park including the Tarangire River which is a permanent river that works as a bloodline for the park ensuring animals flock the river banks in search for water throughout the year. You expect to see elephants, elands, wildebeests, buffaloes, zebras, gerenuks, giraffes and a lot of birds. Lunch will be taken at one of the picnic sites. Later in the afternoon you will drive out of the park and your guide will take you to Karatu in the Ngorongoro Highlands for dinner and overnight at Campsite.
