Arusha National Park
Location

Arusha N. Park was Ngurdoto Crater Highland National Park until 1967. The current national park covers an area of 540 sq km, and is located near the town of Arusha between Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru.

The park and town derive their name from the Wa-Arusha people who traditionally live in this area. On this one-day excursion leaving from Arusha or Moshi town you will get to know the Ngurdoto Crater, Momella Lakes, highland mountain forest, and the rugged Mount Meru (4,565 m). The park has a wealth of wildlife including Colobus Monkeys, velvet monkeys, bushbucks, buffaloes, red forest duikers, hippos, elephants, and giraffes. Bird life, especially waterfowl, is abundant and interesting.

Arusha National Park

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. The area is quite alkaline and therefore provides a year-round breeding area for flamingoes. Lunch in a picnic site.
