After breakfast, we depart for Tarangire national park and arrive in time for lunch at the lodge. In the afternoon, we will have a game drive where you can see giant baobab trees, rolling savannah and acacia parkland. This park is famous for its dense wildlife population, which is most spectacular in the dry season between June and September. It is during this period that thousands of animals- wildebeest, zebra, eland, harte beest, buffalo, and onyx migrate from the dry masai steppe to the Tarangire river in search of water while the predators such as lion, and leopards follow close by.

Meagan Bradham, United States

Expect in Africa Safari exceeded my expectations. Our driver was Raymond. Raymond was extremely knowledgeable, he had an answer for every question we had. He was able to use his knowledge of birds and animals to locate every animal we wanted to see. He was professional and kind. We will be returning with our children and using Raymond again. We also loved the accommodations. We felt safe and the tents were clean and spacious. If you are considering safari, this company is who you need to book with. Read more

The trip with Expect in Africa Safari was a spectacular "endless plain" of big game and beautiful wildlife. Our driver and guide was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable, and made every effort to give us a trip of a lifetime!

We choose Expect In Africa Safari because it matched our needs. A small business who is ran perfectly. We had all the information we needed before to do the safari for 2 days. They helped to choose the best option for the national park. We choose Tarangire and Ngorogoro Crater. During the safari, the guide was great always taking time to explain us the wildlife and other facts about the park. He has a lot of experience. The accommodation they booked for us was beyond expectation. Overall the safari was amazing and we saw a lot of animals especially babies lions. I recommend them. Read more
