Arusha National Park
It is a popular destination for visitors who are about to embark from Arusha on northern circuit safaris. A relatively smaller national park, it encompasses the slopes, summit, and ash cone of Mt. Meru, the Momela Lakes, Ngurdoto Crater, and the lush forest canopies that blanket its lower reaches. Game viewing around the Momela Lakes is at a laid-back and quiet pace, and while passing through the forest many visitors stop to search for troupes of rare colubus monkeys playing in the canopy.
At Arusha National Park, trekking the lower slopes of Mount Meru is a popular activity and often used as a preparatory ground for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to get properly acclimatized. Even though the crater’s summit is quieter and situated at a lower height than Kilimanjaro, its rugged slopes make it harder for climbers. Along the lower slopes, the paths to rivers and waterfalls create a relaxing day hike for visitors who don’t want to attempt the rather arduous climb. Abundance of fig tree forests, crystal clear water coming down in form of mountain streams, and the Colobus monkeys are the main attraction of this park.
It is the closest to the diplomatic hub of Arusha, it is a multi faceted safari destination which if often overlooked by the safari goers, despite being home to a beguiling diversity of habitat within a small boundary which will only require few hours to conclude. Once you step in through the entrance, you’ll be welcomed by the shadowy montane forests and its inhabitants, inquisitive blue monkeys and colorful turacos and trogons. It’s also the one and only place in the entire northern safari circuit where the acrobatic black-and-white colobus monkey is easily seen.
