Although relatively modest in size, the Arusha National Park, in the northeast region of Tanzania, contains a large variety of landscapes and between the peaks of Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro, is an idyllic and evergreen natural wildlife habitat.
Baboons are found everywhere and each group comprises between 5 and 250 members. The park also contains rare species such as the guereza.
To the east, the Ngurdoto Crater is one of the park’s most beautiful areas. The crater itself is a haven for plant eaters and where buffalo are frequent visitors. The surroundings of the 400 metre deep crater contain dense rainforests that are difficult to access.
Pelicans, stork and numerous varieties of heron and crane inhabit the Momella Lakes and add a great deal of color.
Thanks to its unique landscape and large variety of species, the Arusha National Park enjoys a unique position amid the natural wonders of Tanzania.
