2-Day Budget Safari (Tarangire)




2 day budget tour overview

Our 2-day Tarangire National Park safari package was designed to offer visitors, with a time and budget constraint, to experience a Tanzanian Northern Circuit wildlife safari at an affordable rate. Experience the excitement of an African wildlife safari, or even a photographic safari in the iconic Tarangire National Park in Tanzania.

This unforgettable African safari tour will take you to the Tarangire National Park, a diverse and picturesque African wildlife sanctuary. During the annual dry season (Aug to Oct) the Tarangire River is the only permanent water in the area and the park attracts a huge concentration of animals. Tarangire is also noted for its baobab trees, splendid vistas of rolling savannah and acacia woodland.

We are flexible to tailor this sample Tanzanian safari itinerary – it can be adapted to suite your own personal needs and preferences, to any seasonal changes or to migratory animal movements. As with all our African safaris, we have offered you a wide variety of accommodation options – directly impacting on the total safari costs – in order to offer you the widest possible tour budget options.

Please do not hesitate to contact one of our tours consultants directly, should you require any further assistance or more detailed information, regarding any of our safaris, tours, travel and other trekking packages.
