Why Visit Arusha National park?

Easy To Reach;

You can reach easily to the national park. It is in the Arusha city and the airport of the city operates flights from Dar es Salaam. You can drive from Arusha city to the national park which will take you hardly 1 hour and 40 minutes via road.

Outstanding Wilderness;

As the landscape of the national park is varied you can easily spot a high range of diversity in wildlife too. Sighting long necks rising straight behind the bushes or small trees can be an amazing view. However, don’t get surprised by this, as the national park has the largest giraffe concentration.

The Amazing Carter;

The national park is well known for its 2.4km wide carter in the heart of the montane forest. Just use your binoculars to spot the grazing herds of herbivores and some marsh birds on the crater floor.

Float on boat;

Floating in the Momella Lake just beside the amazing view of Mt. Meru and hundreds of flamingos swimming in front of you like showing you the right path as well some flocks flying just over your head.
