Arusha National Park is where wilderness meets beach life; it is the only place of Tanzania Destinations where you can observe the unique flora and fauna of both mainland and marine. It is the only wildlife sanctuary bordering the Indian Ocean. Once a slave trading centre, but nowadays just a small Swahili town. Spotting Zebras, elephants, warthogs, giraffes, wildebeest waterbucks is much expected. Lion, leopard and spotted hyenas is the sight to be seen with greater joy.

Tanzania Safari only national park named after a city, Arusha National Park is a gem inside simple reach. Despite its closeness to the safari capital, however, this park is scarcely visited. But those who visit are stunned by this small park’s extensive perspectives, beautiful volcanic landscape, stunning rainforest, and rich wildlife in relative isolation. Taking up the vast majority of the park’s space is the powerful Mt. Meru, a stratovolcano that was once higher than Mt. Kilimanjaro and Tanzania’s second most elevated mountain. Some amazing landscape is to be had en route including unmatched perspectives on its greater neighbour and groups of buffaloes, giraffes, and zebras brushing tranquillity as you energetically wind your way through the apparently perpetual mountain trail. There is the thick wood, home to the subtle Leopard, the gymnastic highly contrasting colobus monkey and different primates in addition to a variety of wilderness fowls. At the foothills of Mt. Meru lies the Ngurdoto crater, a solid 3km wide, and 400m-profound volcanic caldera obviously named “the little Ngorongoro”.

Toward the upper east of the Arusha National Park are the Momela lakes, a progression of seven shallow antacid lakes framed when Meru passed over its eastern divider. As in most shallow lakes, these too bolster a flourishing assortment of green growth which records for the lakes’ different shades of emerald and turquoise and thusly bolsters a sizeable populace of channel feeders, for example, the pink-hued lesser flamingos who really gain this beautiful shading structure from the algae growth they eat. Other water winged creatures incorporate ducks, grebes, pelicans and a large group of transient flying creatures that typically fly in the middle of May and late October signifying the park’s 575 different bird species that have been seen to date, making it a perfect ornithologist home.

Arusha National Park is the easy accessible National Wildlife Park of Tanzania and perfect for experiencing rich variety of flora and fauna. Get in touch with Outstanding Tanzania Safari and explore all the best safari options.
