Arusha National Park 1 Day Safari is perfect for a day safari in Arusha Town as it is close to Arusha National Park which lies just 25 kilometers east of Arusha Town.
The park offers a rewarding wildlife day trip from Arusha or Moshi. Arusha National park covers an area of about 137square kilometers.
It is located near Arusha town between the peaks of Mountains Kilimanjaro and Meru. The Park and the town derive their name from Wa-Arusha people who traditionally live in this area.
The Ngurdoto Crater, Momela Lakes, the highland mountain forest, and the rugged Mount Meru (4575m) are the four distinctive features of the park.
Although small, the park has a wealth of wildlife including Colobus monkeys, velvet monkeys, bushbucks, buffaloes, red forest duikers, hippos, elephants and giraffes. Bird life, especially waterfowl, is abundant and interesting.
You can do some hiking with an armed ranger at the Ngurdoto Crater and to the Mount Meru Crater. Arusha National Park is a good trip for guests who have a short time in Tanzania.
After breakfast at your hotel, our day safari departs from your hotel for Arusha National Park.
This small but beautiful Tanzanian Park is the closest national park to both the famous Arusha “the safari town” as well as the Kilimanjaro International Airport, thus making it ideal for one-day safaris or tours.
We enjoy a morning and an afternoon game drive in the park and in between have lunch at the Momela wildlife lodge.
Arusha National park Wildlife includes African buffaloes, elephants, hippos, giraffe, warthogs, antelopes, zebras, monkeys and sometimes a rare leopard or hyena.
The park is just a few kilometres north east of Arusha, though the main gate is 25 km east of the city. It is also 58 km from Moshi and 35 km from Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA). Our Arusha National Park 1 Day Safari returns back to the hotel later in the evening.

He epitomized rugged masculinity and has become an enduring American icon. He is famous for his distinctive voice, walk and height. The title means “danger” in Swahili, which was mentioned in the film as well.
Portraying a group of hunters, the film presents an interesting if antiquated portrait of Africa still dominated by non-Africans.
