Safaris: Arusha National Park
Safaris: Arusha National Park

Although Arusha National Park covers only 137 square kilometers (53 square miles) this small park contains a wide variety of landscapes including Ngurdoto Crater, Momela Lakes, mountain rain forests and savannas. The entrance gate leads into a shadowy mountain forest inhabited by inquisitive blue monkeys and colourful turacos and trogons – the only place on the northern safari circuit where the acrobatic black-and-white colobus monkey is easily seen. In the midst of the forest stands the spectacular Ngurdoto Crater, whose steep, rocky cliffs enclose a wide marshy floor dotted with herds of buffalo and warthog. Rolling grassy hills enclose the tranquil beauty of Momela Lakes, each one a different hue of green or blue. Their shallows sometimes tinged pink with thousands of flamingos, the lakes support a rich selection of resident and migrant waterfowl, and shaggy waterbucks display their large lyre-shaped horns on the watery fringes. Giraffes glide across the grassy hills, between grazing zebra herds, while pairs of wide-eyed dik-dik dart into scrubby bush like overgrown hares on spindly legs. At the lakes, hippos enjoy the cool clear mountain water coming from the slopes of Mount Meru. Mount Meru - the fifth highest in Africa at 4,566 metres (14,990 feet) – dominates the park’s horizon. Its peaks and eastern footslopes protected within the national park, Meru offers unparalleled views of its famous neighbor, Kilimanjaro, while also forming a rewarding hiking destination in its own right. Arusha National Park has been popular with film makers and is the backdrop for two films; "Hatari" made in the 1950's with John Wayne and "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" with Gregory Peck and Ava Gardener.
