Arusha National Park

A popular day trip for Tanzania safari visitors about to embark from the town of Arusha on longer northern Tanzania safaris, Arusha National Park is a gem of varied ecosystems and spectacular views of Mount Meru, the crater that gives the region its name.

The small national park includes the slopes, summit, and ash cone of Mount Meru, the Momela Lakes, Ngurdoto Crater, and the lush highland forests that blanket its lower slopes.

Climbing Mount Meru or enjoying the smaller walking safari trails that criss-cross its lower slopes is a popular activity for Tanzania safari visitors to Arusha National Park. The three-day walking safari to reach the crater’s summit is a quieter, and some say more challenging alternative than the famous peak of nearby Mount Kilimanjaro. Along the lower slopes, paths to rivers and waterfalls make a relaxing walking safari for visitors who don’t want to attempt the rather arduous climb.
