Arusha National Park

Arusha, Tanzania

Trip Description

A day trip to the nearest national park to Arusha, the hub of safari in northern Tanzania. Arusha National Park is a multifaceted gem that is frequently disregarded by safari travelers while providing the chance to experience a seductive array of ecosystems in a short period of time.

The Arusha National Park’s entrance gate leads into a dark highland forest where curious blue monkeys, turacos, and trogons live. It is the only location on the northern safari circuit where it is possible to witness the acrobatic Black and White Colobus Monkeys. The magnificent Ngurdoto Crater, whose sheer, rocky cliffs encircle a large marshy floor studded with herds of buffaloes and warthogs, is in the middle of Arusha National Park woodland.

The size of Arusha National Park is 552 kilometers.
