Visit Arusha National Park, Tanzania

The charming scenery of the Arusha national park is set on a land expanse covering 137km2 making it one of the smaller parks in Tanzania. The park is just 25 km from Arusha and also not far away from Moshi and the Kilimanjaro airport.

It is a picturesque safari destination features nature-crafted hills, a vast dreamy stretch of grassland and breath-taking volcanic craters. It is home to Mount Meru, the second highest mountain in Tanzania after Kilimanjaro, and also a variety of bird species. It has the world’s largest population of giraffes and boasts of many fascinating wildlife animals including Buffaloes, Elephants, and Leopards (but are rarely seen), Zebra, Hippos, and Wildebeests.



Main Attractions

With so much to do and see at Arusha National Park, here are some of the attractions that will leave a lasting impression:

  • Mount Meru
  • The Momella lakes
  • Tulusia Hill
  • Ngurdoto crater
  • The Blue Monkey

 

 

Mount Meru

At over 4500 meters, this dormant volcano is the fifth highest mountain in Africa and the second highest in Tanzania. It is the topographic centrepiece of the Arusha National Park, and the rich fertile mountain supports a wide variety of post-ice-age flora and fauna. It is a hiking delight and can prepare tourists for the Mount Kilimanjaro climb. Unlike Kilimanjaro, it is visible all year round and is easier to climb than its juggernaut counterpart.

The Momella lakes

Momella lakes are a series of seven shallow lakes within the National park; these are El Kekhotoito, Rishateni, Tulusia, Lekandiro, Kusare, Small Momella and Big Momella. The presence of algae gives them all their characteristic blue and green looks. Tourists can go on a canoeing Safari on Small Momella and catch a glimpse of exotic birds and dazzling water life

Tulusia Hill

This historical hill was once a lookout spot during the Tanzanian tribal wars of years past. The area around it is heavily forested and a home to many of East Africa’s wildlife fauna including the mischievous White Colobus monkey,

Ngurdoto crater

Stretching about 3km across, the crater is steep-sided and surrounded by dense forestation, the crater floor, however, is a swamp and is home to many of Africa’s Safari animals. Due to the nature of the surroundings, it is prohibited to get to the bottom of the crater, but tourists can still enjoy the panoramic view overhead.
