Just a stone’s throw away from Arusha lies a gem sharing its name – Arusha National Park. This 137 km² park encompasses the majestic Mount Meru, which stands tall at 4566 m making it the second-highest peak after Mount Kilimanjaro. Hike through the lush forests surrounding Mount Meru, and for an adrenaline rush, conquer the challenging summit of Mount Meru itself.

Arusha National Park boasts a wildlife ensemble – giraffes, hippos, buffalo, zebra, and baboons. Take a boat safari on Momella Lakes, surrounded by breathtaking scenery, or experience a guided walking safari. A walking safari gives you a chance to be in the midst of wildlife, like buffalos, giraffes or the playful Colobus monkeys swinging in the trees, adding a special touch to your Tanzanian adventure.

Arusha National Park is perfect for day trips, and if you love camping, you can enjoy exciting nights at the foot of Mount Meru. It’s a great way to be surrounded by nature and make the most of your time in this beautiful park.
