January 8, 2011

After packing up our tents at the Olasiti Village campsite, we ventured off to Tarangire National Park, famous for its elephant populations. We arrived at Tarangire Safari Lodge, which overlooks miles of beautiful African savanna!  From the lodge terrace we were excited to see giraffes, zebra, impala, and elephants. As Tarangire has a constant water supply, it attracts a variety of wildlife; during our safari, we identified and photographed ostriches, elephants, impala, water buck, dwarf mongoose and lions! Tomorrow we will head out at 6:30AM and hope to see some elephants up close!
