Arusha National Park

It is a popular destination for day trip visitors who are about to embark from the town of Arusha: the small national Park includes the slopes, summit, and ash cone of Mt. Meru, the Momela Lakes, Ngurdoto Crater, and the lush highland forests that blanket its lower slopes. Game viewing around the Momela Lakes is at a laid-back and quiet pace. Also, passing through the forest, many visitors stop to search for troupes of rare colobus monkeys.

Climbing Mt. Meru via smaller trails is a popular activity for visitors to Arusha National Park. Therefore, a three-day trek to the recruiter’s summit is quieter. But some say it is a more challenging alternative than the famous peak of nearby Mount Kilimanjaro. The paths to rivers and waterfalls create a relaxing day hike for visitors.

The closest national Park to Arusha town—noTanzania’szania’s safari capital—Arusha National Park is a multi-faceted jewel. However, safari goers often overlook it despite the opportunity to explore a beguiling diversity of habitats.

The entrance gate leads into a shadowy montane forest inhabited by inquisitive blue monkeys, colorful turacos, and trogons. It is the only place where the acrobatic black-and-white colobus monkey is easily seen. I hope you need to explore, experience, and discover more! Plan your trip with Great Image Expedition.
