Detailed 2 Day Arusha National Park Itinerary
Day 1: ARUSHA TOWN - ARUSHA NATIONAL PARK

Upon arrival you will embark on a 3 hours of walking safari. You will explore nature on foot while accompanied by armed ranger. The forests around are inspiration to birdwatchers. This area has over 50 species of birds. Most migrant birds are found here.
After your lunch embark on a half day game drive in the park. This drive takes you to Ngurdoto Crater rim and Momella Lakes. This park is famous for Black and white Colobus Monkeys. There are also Burchell’s zebra, giraffe and herds of buffalo. Proceed to Ngurdoto Safari Lodge in time for dinner.
Arusha National Park
Arusha National Park (ANAPA) is a gem of varied ecosystems and spectacular views of Mt. Meru, the crater that gives the region its name
It is a popular destination for day trip visitors from Arusha. Also, those who are about to embark from the town of Arusha on longer northern circuit safaris.
The small national park includes the slopes, summit, and ash cone of Mt. Meru. There is the Momela Lakes, Ngurdoto Crater, and the lush highland forests. All these blankets its lower slopes.
Game viewing around the Momela Lakes is at a laid-back and quiet pace.
Climbing Mt. Meru or enjoying smaller trails that criss-cross its lower slopes is a popular activity. This is more so for visitors to Arusha National Park.
The three-day trek to reach the crater’s summit is a quieter. Some say more challenging alternative than the famous peak of nearby Mount Kilimanjaro.
Along the lower slopes, the paths to rivers and waterfalls create a relaxing day hike. This is good for visitors who don’t want to attempt the rather arduous climb.
Ancient fig tree forests, crystal clear waters cascading from mountain streams. This gives you a chance to spot colobus monkeys. They are the attractions and pleasures of Arusha National Park.
Day 2: ARUSHA NATIONAL PARK - ARUSHA
Your Arusha National Park safari will start with breakfast. This will be followed by a game drive to the Serengeti Ndogo. You will also visit the Ngurdoto Crater rim and Momella Lakes. Have some time for a picnic lunch in the afternoon. After lunch drive back to Arusha for a drop off at your hotel.
