The Arusha National Park

Experience the true wonder of Tanzania with an unforgettable day trip in the Arusha National Park. The National Park is the ideal place to visit on a day tour because it is so easily accessible from Arusha which is where our day tours depart from. .

Despite being so close to Arusha city, the national park isn’t overly visited so it really does feel as if you get nature and the wildlife all to yourself. You can take in all the park has to offer in one day with our carefully planned day tours.

Arusha National Park is a sight to behold because of its lush colours, incredible plant life and mesmerizing wildlife. The park is a tranquil place and a great place to escape to for the day.

As you enter the park from Arusha, you will see an expanse of green montane forest open up before you. The park is a big pull for anyone seeking to experience such a vast array of wildlife and East Africa’s Garden of Eden.

You will see giraffes gracefully gliding along and have one of the clearest views of the intriguing black and white colobus monkeys more than anywhere else in Tanzania.

This is a birding explorers paradise. You will find Arusha National park filled with an assortment of birds you will only find in this incredible part of the world. The park alone boasts over 400 species of bird which include the Silvery Cheeked Hornbill, Narina Trogon, Peregrine Falcon, African Fish Eagle and the Bar Tailed Trogon to name just a few.

There really is no place on earth quite like the Arusha National Park which is why we feel everyone should get to experience it, if only for one day.

Ngurdoto Crater is such a special place that it is a protected environment. The crater will take your breath away when you stop to view the animals and take pictures to capture the memories of such an incredible place.

Created by volcanic movements a long time ago, the crater is now 3.6km in diameter and is 100 metres deep at some points. The Ngurdoto Crater is truly one of the most magnificent sights of all of Tanzania and one which shouldn’t be missed. Once experienced, never forgotten.

Momella Lakes are a must see when you visit Tanzania. When you visit the lakes you will see one of the most diverse ranges of waterbirds in the world. They should really be called Flamingo Lakes because of the huge population of birds that feed and rest here throughout the year.

Buffalo, hippo’s and bushbacks all lounge in the lakes and aside from the sounds from the surrounding wildlife and gently swaying flora, you will only find tranquility and peace.

When you come this close to natural perfection created by the beauty of our great planet, it really does have a big impact on you. There is so much amazing wildlife to see in Arusha National Park, and the real beauty of it is, they’re exactly where they’re meant to be.

Trekili can provide you with different day trip options but this one starts with a walking tour to the famous waterfall which then leads onto a game drive through the Arusha National Park and onto the Ngurduto Crater and Momella Lakes.
