Arusha - Mkomazi National Park
After breakfast, the driver will pick up from your hotel in Arusha and you will depart to Mkomazi National Park. You will arrive in the late morning and proceed with half-day game viewing. Mkomazi is a vital refuge for two highly endangered species, the charismatic black rhino and sociable African wild dog, both of which were successfully reintroduced in the 1990's. By nature, wild dogs might be seen almost anywhere in the park, but black rhinos are restricted to a fenced sanctuary, ensuring their safe keeping for future generations' enjoyment and prosperity. After a hot lunch, you will proceed to explore the park and return back to the camp in the evening to clean up and share stories around the campfire.

After breakfast, you will go for a full day of game viewing, taking a packed lunch to maximize your time. Most of the animals that you’ll see are endangered species, particularly the black rhino and wild dog along with several bird species. Mkomazi supports several dry - country specialists species that are rare elsewhere in Tanzania; these include the spectacular fringe-eared oryx, with its long back-sweeping horns, and the handsome spiral-horned lesser kudu. Oddest of all is the gerenuk, a gazelle distinguished by its slender neck, bizarre alien-like head, and habit of standing tall on its hind legs stretch for acacia leaves that other browsers cannot reach. You will proceed with your game drive till late in the evening then drive to your camp for dinner and overnight at a public campsite. Alternatively, you will proceed with your game drive till late in the evening then drive to Same small town for dinner and overnight at a hotel or lodge.
