1-Day Safari Budget Arusha National Park

Arusha National Park is Tanzania’s most accessible park in more ways than one. It’s not only conveniently located, but it’s also the best place to embark on walking and canoeing safaris – putting you closer to the action than anywhere else in the country! While Arusha National Park has no large predators, it is home to Africa’s largest giraffe population, a variety of primate species, and a number of large herbivores.


After breakfast at 8:30, you are met by our professional tour guide/driver who will deliver a short safari-info briefing. We will then head east toward Arusha National Park. This small but beautiful Tanzanian national park is the closest national park to the famous Arusha. Not only is the animal life in the park abundant, but it is also one of the most beautiful and topographically-varied parks in Tanzania. The park’s 3 most significant features include the rugged Mount Meru (Tanzania’s second-highest peak at 4,566m), the notably different colored Momela Lakes, and the 3km-wide Ngurdoto Crater, which was formed about 15 million years ago!

We will enjoy lunch at the Momela Lakes, and you will continue your game drive. In the Ngurdoto Crater, you can see African buffalos, elephants, hippos, giraffes, warthogs, antelopes, zebras, blue monkeys, and sometimes a rare leopard or hyena. We then return to Arusha town or the airport.
