Find your safari in Arusha National Park
Tanzania is iconic Africa. Where the snowclad summit of Mount Kilimanjaro surveys the plains of the Serengeti, wildlife abounds in staggering numbers. This is the site of one of the world’s most remarkable natural spectacles: the annual Great Migration when nearly two million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle traverse the savanna in pursuit of water and new grass. Predators like lion and cheetah stalk in their wake. Farther south, in Tarangire National Park, vast herds of elephant outnumber people. With some of the continent’s greatest concentrations of wild animals, Tanzania is duly famed as a top safari destination.
Arusha is the starting point for most National Parks in Tanzania, like Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Lake Manyara, Tarangire and also for Kilimanjaro Trekking. Arusha NP is close to the city and a perfect one day trip or great in combination with other sites. The lake makes the Arusha National Park interesting for birding and it also attract most species of wildlife.
