Location of Kimotorok ranger post
Kimotorok ranger post is located on the south eastern end of Tarangire national park, a remote area amidst the Oldule swamp and just a few minutes shy of the actual park boundary - east of it.
For more information on this location, please see the map below.How to get there?
Mostly by road, with two routes, one a dirt outback road east of the park and the other the tarmac Arusha - Babati highway on the park's west.
This could be via a self drive safari, using a private or rental vehicle - with daily park tariffs for this include conservation fees, vehicle fees and possibly camping or accommodation fees - if spending the night inside the park.
There are airstrips in the area, but you still would need a vehicle to get around the park, and they mostly serve regional flights. The larger international airports are located a bit further out in Arusha or Kilimanjaro - about a half day drive away.
