Arusha National Park Day Trip
You will be picked up from your hotel in town and drive to Arusha National Park for a full day’s game drive safari with picnic lunch. The closest national park to Arusha town – northern Tanzania’s safari capital – Arusha National Park is a multi-faceted jewel, often overlooked by safari-goers, despite offering the opportunity to explore a beguiling diversity of habitats within a few hours.
Situated at the foot of Mount Meru, this breathtaking park includes the alkaline Momella Lakes, the Ngurdoto Craters, and spectacular waterfalls. This is one of the parks where you can enjoy a walking safari. Although it’s a small park, it is also one of the most beautiful parks with spectacular views of Mt. Meru and Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Covering an area of about 137 square kilometers, Arusha National Park is home to over 400 species of birds, both resident and migrant, and an incredible array of wildlife that includes black and white colubus monkeys, blue monkeys, and numerous olive baboons, as well as a wide range of antelopes, giraffes, elephants, zebras, hyenas, and leopards. Arusha National Park is said to have the largest concentration of giraffes in the world!
