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. The park has three most significant features include the rugged Mount Meru (Tanzania’s second-highest peak at 4566m), the notably different colored Momela Lakes, and the 3km wide Ngurdoto Crater, which was formed about fifteen million years ago! We will enjoy an exciting morning game drive, lunch at the picnic, and afternoon game drive, visiting both the Momela Lakes and the Ngurdoto Crater. Wildlife that could be seen include African buffalos, elephants, hippos, giraffes, warthogs, antelopes, zebras, blue monkeys, and sometimes a rare leopard or hyena.
Tucked just this side of the Kenyan border and near to the busy city of Arusha lies the little-known jewel of Tanzania, Arusha National Park. Arusha National Park is less visited than the more famous Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, but it’s for you if you want a beautiful landscape with an incredible variety of flora and fauna – but fewer people!
This Safari will give you the opportunity of getting up close and personal to the animals on a walking safari but also lets you take in the landscapes on a glorious game drive.
