Trip Details

A Day Trip To Arusha National Park

1 Day

At only 25km from the city and 35km from Kilimanjaro International Airport, Arusha National Park is easily accessible. A day trip to this stunning park is a must-do activity for any nature lover.

You can choose between a thrilling game drive or a guided nature walk, escorted by an armed ranger. What makes this park truly unique is that it’s the only national park in Tanzania that offers a nature walk inside its boundaries.

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even climb Mount Meru, which is part of the park. Standing at an impressive 4566m above sea level, this mountain is a real challenge. It takes around three to four days to climb to the top, with overnight stays at the alpine huts of Miriakamba and Saddo on your way up and down.

The park spans an area of 137 sq. km and is home to some incredible natural features, including the stunning montane forest, the picturesque Momela lakes, the mesmerizing Ngurdoto Crater, and of course, the rocky Mount Meru.
