Safari in Arusha National Park

Arusha National Park is a small park of 137 km2 but has remarkable sights including the fourth highest mountain in Africa; Mount Meru (4566m). The transition between the urban chaos and pristine mountain hiking trails is very obvious and abrupt when entering Arusha National Park. Visitors are thrilled by the breathtaking landscapes ranging from the Meru Crater in the west, the Ngurdoto Crater in the south-east, to the grasslands and the Momella lakes in the north-east. Additionally, it as well shelters Ngurdoto Crater, commonly referred to as Little Ngorongoro, with its swamp-filled floor. Animals which can be found in the park, amongst others, are the black & white Colobus monkeys, small predators, giraffes, elephants and buffaloes. The park is excellent as a starting point of your trip to acclimatize after a long international flight. On a clear day and with a bit of luck you can see the majestic Kilimanjaro in the distance.

Walking Safari

Arusha National Park is unique because it’s among the few parks in Tanzania where you have the opportunity to do a safari by foot. An armed ranger will be waiting for you to accompany you on your exciting walking safari. During this activity you get the chance to experience the wildlife up-close, a totally different experience than game-viewing by car. Buffalo, waterbuck, giraffe, warthog, zebra, bush-buck and of course the naughty baboons can be seen all year round as well as many different bird species. The walking expedition takes two to three hours during which you cross the Jekukumia River and visit a lovely waterfall where you can take a refreshing ‘shower’. The inquisitive blue monkeys and several colorful birds populate the shadowy montane forest and is the only place on the northern safari circuit where the acrobatic black-and-white Colobus monkey is often seen. The guide stops regularly, not merely searching for game, but telling you about birds, insects, trees, animal droppings, the medicinal use of plants and which animals eat which plants.

Canoe safari

Enjoy a peaceful and scenic canoeing safari following the shorelines of small Momella Lake. On this 2-21/2 hours canoe safari you can view buffaloes, bushbuck, giraffes, hippos and many water birds living in and close to the water.
