Arusha National Park Day Tour

Trip Introduction

Duration: 11 hours

This small but beautiful Tanzanian National Park is the closest national park to both the famous Arusha “safari town” (30 km) as well as the Moshi town (75km), thus making it ideal for 1-day safaris tours. Not only is the animal life in the park abundant, but it is also one of the most beautiful and topographically varied parks in Tanzania. Arusha national park includes the slopes, summit and ash cone of mount Meru which is the second highest peak in Tanzania having 4566 m above sea level, the notably different colored Momela Lakes, and the 3km wide Ngurudoto Crater, which was formed about fifteen million years ago! Wildlife which could be seen include White and black colubus Monkey, African buffalos, elephants, hippos, giraffe, warthogs, antelopes, zebras, blue monkeys and sometimes a rare leopard or hyena.
