Overview

This beautiful Park has often been called a “little germ” and rightly so. It is only ½ an hour by tarmac road from Arusha town, the safari center of Northern Tanzania. With mountains, valleys, lakes, and small plains clothed in green, it has a wonderful feeling of peace and solitude. It is dominated by Mount Meru, which at 4,566 m (14,980 ft) is the 5rd highest free standing mountain in Africa. 

This second highest mountain in Tanzania offers unforgettable experience and serves as acclimatization refuge before climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.

Wildlife & Birdlife

Arusha National Park is celebrated for its abundant wildlife and vibrant birdlife, offering a remarkable safari experience:

Wildlife:

  1. African Elephants: While not as numerous as in other parks, Arusha National Park is home to African elephants. They can often be spotted around the swamps and grasslands.

  2. Giraffes: The park hosts both the Masai giraffe and the smaller but no less striking reticulated giraffe. They are commonly seen grazing on the grassy plains.

  3. Buffaloes: Large herds of African buffaloes roam the park, particularly in the Ngurdoto Crater area.

  4. Zebras: Plains zebras are abundant in Arusha National Park, often seen grazing alongside other herbivores.

  5. Antelopes: Various antelope species can be found here, including the elegant impalas, bushbucks, and waterbucks.

  6. Warthogs: These robust and amusing creatures are quite common in the park and can often be seen foraging for food.

  7. Leopards: While elusive, leopards inhabit the forests of Arusha National Park. They are mainly active during the night, making sightings rare but thrilling.

  8. Black and White Colobus Monkeys: Arusha National Park is one of the few places where you can spot these striking primates. They can often be seen swinging through the trees in the montane forest.

  9. Baboons: Olive baboons are prevalent in the park and can be quite bold in their interactions with visitors, especially around picnic areas.

  10. Birdlife: The park is a haven for birdwatchers, with over 400 bird species recorded. Highlights include flamingos at the Momella Lakes, various birds of prey, and colorful forest species like turacos and trogons.
