About Arusha National Park

Arusha National Park is the closest National Park to Arusha Town; it is just 35Km north east of Arusha town and 60Km west of Kilimanjaro International Airport. The parks ecosystem consists of various spectacular landscapes that include the shallow alkaline Momella lakes, the Tropical montane forest and glassland, the Meru and Ngurdoto craters.

Climbing Mt. Meru or enjoying the smaller trails that crisscross its lower slopes is a popular activity for visitors to Arusha National Park. The three-days trek to reach the crater’s summit is a quieter, and some say more challenging alternative than the famous peak of nearby Mount Kilimanjaro. Along the lower slopes, paths to rivers and waterfalls make a relaxing day hike for visitors who don’t want to attempt the rather arduous climb. Ancient fig tree forests, crystal clear waters cascading from mountain streams, and a chance to spot colobus monkeys are the attractions and pleasures of Arusha National Park.
