Arusha Game Park

Arusha National Park Tanzania

Arusha National Park is often overlooked by tourists heading to the more famous Serengeti or Lake Manyara. Those who find the times to make a visit, however, are rarely disappointed by the diverse population of wildlife just a virtual stone's throw away from Arusha. The Park is the perfect location for a half-day trip for those who are time-pressed or just dying for a little more after a northern circuit safari.

The National Park is home to a large portion of Mount Meru, the second highest mountain in Tanzania. The striking monolith towers high above the national park, whose 212 square miles encompass much of the eastern side of the mountain including the summit's 3.5 km-wide Meru Crater and the slightly smaller Ngurdoto Crater. The park also contains the shallow Momela lakes, which attract a variety of wildlife to their alkaline waters.

The National Park's wildlife includes elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos, buffaloes, warthogs, antelopes, and primates such as playful colobus and blue monkeys. If you're really lucky, you may even spot a leopard or hyena! Arusha National Park is also a haven for birders, with almost 600 different species and a variety of plentiful butterflies.
