A day Trip to Arusha National Park / Manyara National Park

A Day Trip To Arusha National Park with Selous Explorer; After breakfast drive to  Arusha National Park. This small but beautiful Tanzanian National Park is the closest National Park to both the famous Arusha “safari town” (42 km) , thus making it ideal for 1-day safaris or tours, but it is also one of the most beautiful and topographically varied parks in Tanzania.

The park’s three most significant features include the rugged Mount Meru (Tanzania’s second highest peak at 4566m), the notably different colored Momela Lakes, and the 3km wide Ngurdoto Crater, which was formed about fifteen million years ago!

We will enjoy a picnic lunch inside the park and do two exciting morning and afternoon game drives, visiting both the Momela Lakes and the Ngurdoto Crater. Wildlife which could be seen include African buffalos, elephants, hippos, giraffe, warthogs, antelopes, zebras, blue monkeys and sometimes a rare leopard or hyena. Late afternoon we depart for Arusha/Moshi.
