Arusha National Park 1/1 by Tripoto
After breakfast we meet Augustine for briefing then drive to Arusha National Park with Picnic Lunch for game drive. The closest National park to Arusha town (DRIVING TIME TO THE GATE IS 45 minutes). Arusha National Park is a multi-faceted jewel, often overlooked by safari goers, despite offering the opportunity to explore a beguiling diversity of habitats within a few hours. Lying between the peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro and Meru, Arusha National Park is an outstandingly beautiful area. This small park, 137 sq km is located 25 km from Arusha. There are three distinct areas that are found within Arusha National Park namely Ngurdoto Crater, the Momella Lakes and the rugged Mt. Meru. The vegetation which occurs in the Park is correlated to the altitude and geology of the area. Ngurdoto Crater is surrounded by forest whilst the crater floor is a swampy area. The Momella Lakes, like many in the Rift Valley, are alkaline, and their shallows sometimes tinged pink with thousands of flamingos, the lakes support a rich selection of resident and migrant waterfowl. Mt. Meru is a mixture of lush forests and bare rocks. At noon enjoy your picnic Lunch and be driven to Tarangire. DINNER AND OVERNIGHT MARAMBOI TENTED CAMP - Full board.
