Mount Meru Majesty
Dominating the park’s skyline is the majestic Mount Meru, an active stratovolcano and Tanzania’s second-highest peak. Treks to its summit provide an exhilarating and lesser-known alternative to Kilimanjaro, allowing you to witness breathtaking vistas, lush montane forests, and varied vegetation zones as you ascend.
Flora and Fauna Harmony
Arusha National Park’s diverse landscapes range from open grasslands to lush rainforests, creating a haven for an astonishing variety of flora and fauna. The park is home to giraffes, buffaloes, zebras, and warthogs. Leopards, although elusive, also inhabit the area. The unique opportunity to encounter such a range of animals within a compact area makes Arusha a captivating destination.
The park’s series of Momela Lakes – each with its distinct coloration due to their varying mineral content – attract a multitude of bird species. Flamingos wade through the shallows, while African fish eagles soar above. Exploring the lakes’ surroundings on foot or by game drive offers an intimate connection to the park’s vibrant avian life.
