Arusha National Park is a small but very accessible park located 16 miles northeast of Arusha. It is a great place for a day trip. Although it measures just 53 square miles (137 square km), it has a remarkable range of habitats. The most prominent feature here is Mount Meru, the second-highest peak in Tanzania.

The park also contains a miniature volcanic crater (Ngurduto Crater), a river (Jekukumia River), a highland rain forest, acacia woodlands and a string of crater lakes (Momella Lakes).

When it comes to wildlife, Arusha National Park Tour is home to Colobus monkeys, velvet monkeys, buffalo, hippos, elephants, and giraffe. Waterfowl is abundant here as well. The park offers many beautiful panoramic views, including spectacular views of both Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru.

Day 1
Explore Nature & wildlife In Arusha

This morning drive to Arusha National Park for game viewing. The park is dominated by Mount Meru, Africa’s fifth highest mountain, 4,565m. There is a good range of animal species represented; you can expect to see hippos, giraffes, zebras, warthogs, waterbucks, and bushbucks, although more interesting sightings such as reedbucks, leopards and hyenas are much more occasional. They are also quite alkaline and therefore provide a year-round breeding area for flamingoes.
