Safari at Arusha National Park

One of the most popular activities for people on safari tours to this park is climbing Mount Meruand going on smaller trails which cover the lower slopes of the mountain. Safaris on offer include a trek for 3 days. People are taken to the summit of the crater of Mount Meruand this is considered to be as challenging a task as is found when climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, nearby.  Along the lower slopes of this mountain, visitors will find paths to waterfalls and rivers to complete a thoroughly relaxing day’s hike.

For people who would like to see the sights of this park on different occasions and not get confined to safari vehicles for longer periods such as three days, they can even opt for day safaris. The full day adventure is offered with lunch and drinks (optional) and the safari will include riding on gravel roads, walking and canoeing. A group of visitors will be picked up early morning from their lodges or hotels so that they assemble at the gates of the park by 10 am. The drive to the park will be through small towns and coffee plantations. They will be met by armed rangers who will accompany the safari seekers on their morning walk in the shadows of Mount Meru. They will head upwards and this ascent will allow them to see plenty of wildlife with great panoramic views of the park. Once the walk is completed, then the visitors would be driven to Momella Lakes, where a picnic lunch will be served to them. Canoeing safaris would then be provided at these lakes. The safari would continue after that with game drives through this park and all this will be done at a very relaxed pace.
