Arusha NP

Discover Arusha National Park

This is the closest National park in Arusha, Northern Tanzania, and it’s just a 40-minute drive from the city center. The often-overlooked Arusha Public Park is actually a gem, a richly woven work of biodiversity brimming with birds and animals. The rich bogs of the Ngurdoto Cavity, the quiet excellence of the Momela Lakes, and the rugged elevated statures of Mt. Meru-the fifth highest mountain in Africa, remaining at 4,566 meters (14,990 feet)-offer astounding geological characteristics.It is likewise at sunset and day break the cloak of cloud not too far off is destined to clear, uncovering the lofty snow-caped pinnacles of Mt. Kilimnajaro, just 50kilometres (30miles) far off.


Groups of Bison, zebra, and warthog herds, as well as giraffes and elephants, graze on the red meadows of the recreation center, and panthers prowl close to cascades in the barren jungle, keeping an eye out for hungry zebras and elands. The unusual primates, such as the gymnastic, sharply contrasting Colobus monkeys, can be seen easily. The territory at the street fork that inspired Momela Door to call it “Serengeti ndogo” (meaning “little Serengeti”) depicts an open prairie and is the only place in the recreation center where the Burchell Zebra can be seen.

Early morning and late evening are usually the best times to observe wildlife. During the day, a variety of natural life rests underneath or retreats into the deeper parts of the forest. Regardless, travelers will see unusual species in Arusha Public Park during the day if they look carefully and patiently.

Discover by Activities


  • Game Drive

Day game drives are designed to transport you to the untamed life habitats that are nearest to you. This is commonly remembered for almost every schedule, as it is the most well-known method for seeing creatures in areas rich in untamed life. It will give you the opportunity to become a true pilgrim and discover the magnificent natural life and wild. Our safari vehicles have sprung up rooftops to provide a more all-encompassing view. Around 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., natural life is usually included. You’ll have to get up early and go for an early morning game drive with your guide, return for a late morning snack, and then return for another round of untamed life watching.


  • Canoeing/Drifting

Enjoy a serene and magnificent kayaking safari along the shores of Arusha National Park or Lake Manyara National Park. See the wild oxen, shrub buck, giraffes, hippos, and a variety of water birds that call the lake home.

  • Climb mount Meru

Meru is an excellent warm-up climb for Kilimanjaro climbers, as well as a pleasant journey for those who are not obligated to climb Kilimanjaro. You can ascend past natural life, enjoy the view, and see Kilimanjaro at dawn from the highest point. The journey to the highest point is anything but easy, even though it is usually completed in four days. There is some climbing on rocks to get to the top in the dark and at high altitudes. You should expect to climb for a total of 10 hours on the final day. You can simply climb to Rhino Point at dawn for a shorter walk, then descend.
