Arusha National Park

Arusha National Park encompasses the Momela Lakes, Mount Meru and the Ngurdoto crater. On clear days, visitors have magnificent views of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mont Meru. The park is famous for its 400 species of birdlife, both migrant and resident, and the black and white colobus monkey. Other animals which can be seen in the park are elephants, baboons, giraffes, hippos, leopards, hyenas and a wide range of different species of antelope. Because of its close proximity to Arusha and its size, it is an ideal place for a one-day excursion.
