Connect With Nature in a Beautiful Park

Often overlooked due to its small size, Arusha National Park is a beautiful escape from the bustling city only 25 kilometres away.

Typically this park is known as the home of Mount Meru, Tanzania’s second highest peak 4565m, but there is so much more to this small park than that. The diverse landscape holds everything from dense jungle to roaring rivers.

Unlike other parks, here you can explore lush jungle paths with canopies overhead hosting hundreds of playful monkeys. You will also find giraffes galloping through open fields and flocks of flamingos dancing across a lake.

It’s a wonderful place to connect with nature and still make it back to the city before nightfall.
