How to Get to Tarangire National Park.

By air

Flying into Kilimanjaro International Airport, which is just next to Arusha town and the beginning of the northern safari circuit tourism parks, is the best route to reach Tarangire. A domestic trip to Arusha Airport can also be purchased after landing at Dar es Salaam’s Julius Nyerere International Airport. Take a flight to Nairobi, Kenya, then a bus to get from Arusha to Nairobi to save money on your ticket. A late afternoon arrival in Arusha is possible if you choose a morning pick-up. Typically, your tour operator will pick you up at the airport and make arrangements for any necessary further transportation.

The two-hour drive from Arusha to the Tarangire entrance gate is also a delightful option. There are regular flights from Arusha and the Serengeti to Tarangire. Moving on, it is simple to reach Lake Manyara (100 km/60 mi in about two hours) and the Ngorongoro crater (180 km/ 110 km in about four hours).

Typically, these charter flights would be arranged by your safari or tour operator as part of your safari package. Any domestic airline, such as Air Tanzania, precise Air, Regional Air, Zan Air, safari Air link, or Coastal Aviation, can be used to book domestic flights.

By Road

It takes two to three hours to travel 140 kilometers from Arusha to Tarangire National Park. Unfortunately, a lot of people think that a Tarangire safari is solitary, but if you go there in the dry season, especially if you explore the southern parts of the park, you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of animals. Along with the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro crater, Tarangire should be explored as part of the well-known northern safari circuit.
