Most people identify a safari to Tarangire as a loner Safari. Tarangire ranks as part of the famous northern safari circuit and is definitely visited alongside with Serengeti and the Ngorongoro crater. Arusha town is a starting point to many for most of the safaris to this circuit.
Flying into Kilimanjaro International AirPort (KIA) is the best option to get to Tarangire. This is located, 46 kilometers (29 Miles) from Arusha. Another possibility is to fly into Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR) which is near Dar es Salaam and then arranging for a domestic flight at Arusha Airport (ARK).
If you want to get a relatively cheap flight, you can also opt to fly in Nairobi Kenya and then move on to continue with one of the buses between Arusha and Nairobi. You are able to get to Arusha by 4 pm if you use a morning pick up. Your tour operator will pick you up from the airport in most cases and also take care of any other transportation from there.
You can also use charter flights from Arusha then to Serengeti and then finally to Tarangire.From Arusha to the entrance gate, be assured of a comfortable drive that will take you only 2hours, with which only 7kms of them are on a non tarred road. Going on is quite easy to drive to Lake Manyara, or the Ngorongoro Conservation area.
