Your camping safari starts with the drive to Tarangire, Tanzanian’s fifth largest national park and sanctuary for an unusually large elephant population. Majestic baobab trees are interesting feature of the park, dwarfing the animals that feed beneath them. Animals concentrate along the Tarangire River, which provides the only permanent water supply in the area.
