Arusha National park

This beautiful Park has often been called a little  gem and rightly so. It’s only half an hour by Tarmac  Road from Arusha Clock Tower, the safari centre of northern Tanzania. With mountains, valleys, lakes and small plains clothed green, it is dominated by Mount Meru, a dormant volcano about 1.5 million years old., which at 4,563 meters (14980 ft) is the 3rd highest freestanding mountain in Africa. One side exploded about 8,000 years ago as Meru’s caldera lake was transformed into superheated  steam by an inner eruption. One of the largest landslides of mud and rock ever measured worldwide took place,  forming  hillrocks , valleys and small lakes. This interesting and broken terrain is now clad in patches of forest and bush at the lower end and pristine rainforest on the upper slopes. At the  bottom end of the park there is another small, but complete, volcanic crater called Ngurdoto, which has recently been opened to guided hikes. It is a secret paradise, with a lake on one side and and elsewhere clothed in virgin forest and a a network of open grassy glades. A track follows the rim with lookout  points  established where one can relax with a picnic and look down into this secret world of swamps and plains. Visitors can spot water buffalo, warthogs and occasional an elephant enjoying its peaceful surroundings. A well maintained game viewing road and tracks wind through the park offering frequent views of spectacular beauty, with both Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro often in sight.

Located just 45 minutes drive from Arusha, Arusha National Park is Tanzania’s most accessible park in more ways than one. It’s not only conveniently located, but it’s also the best place to embark on walking and canoeing safaris – putting you closer to the action than anywhere else in the country!

While Arusha National Park has no large predators, it is home to Africa’s largest giraffe population, a variety of primate species, and a number of large herbivores.

It’s the perfect day out for a family or those wanting something different to the standard game drive experience.
