Arusha National Park

Arusha National Park covering an area of 137 square kilometers, Arusha National Park lies between the peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru.

Known for its remarkable range of altitude, topography, and vegetation, the park hosts a variety of species particular to forest, mountain, and aquatic habitats.

Areas of Interest in Arusha National Park

There are three main areas of interest in Arusha National Park: the Ngurdoto Volcano Crater, the Momela Lakes, and the rugged Mt. Meru.

The Ngurdoto Crater is surrounded by highland forest, a prime setting to spot black and white colobus monkeys traveling along the treetops. Rim to rim, the crater extends 3 kilometers and descends into a volcanic bowl teeming with wildlife. The view from the rim is spectacular, where buffalo and warthogs can often be seen on the crater's swampy floor and the huge crowned eagle may be seen flying overhead.

Wildlife in Arusha National Park

The Momela Lakes circuit is a string of wonderful crater lakes, each with its own charm and geological peculiarities. These lakes, like many in the 20 million-year-old Rift Valley, are shallow, alkaline and fed predominantly by underground streams. Giraffes, hippos, and elephants are especially common to this area.

Notably, the area is also a birder's paradise, hosting an astonishing variety of migratory and resident bird life. Over 400 species of birds have been recorded in the park. In addition to the large flamingo population, some notable species include the Crowned Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, Silvery-Cheeked Hornbill, Egyptian Vulture, and Hammerhead Stork.

The Mt. Meru Crater offers one of the most stunning landscapes in Africa and is considered to be the highpoint of any visit to Arusha National Park. Mt. Meru, Tanzania's second highest peak, is an interesting mixture of lush forests and bare rocks. The forests contain a wealth of birds and other animals, like the beautiful bushbuck easily glimpsed in the glades between the ancient cedar trees.

What to do in Arusha National Park

A great place for day trips, walking safaris, and photography expeditions, Arusha National Park is just 21 kilometers from the town of Arusha and is easily reached via the Moshi Road.
