Overview: Safari in Arusha National Park
Arusha National Park is often overlooked by travellers heading to the more famous sights of the Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti. However, with a little time, Arusha National Park offers some lovely walking in the foothills of Mount Meru and canoeing on the Momela Lakes, plus gentle game drives. A half-day or full-day visit is well worth the time.
There's a range of activities in Arusha National Park. These include walking safaris, accompanied by a ranger and lasting for up to four hours, during which you will stop for a break at one of the park's lovely picnic sites.
You can also explore the further reaches of the park by vehicle, taking in some of the lovely views and keeping an eye out for wildlife. Another good activity here – one not found in Tanzania's other parks – is a canoeing safari exploring the Momela Lakes.
