About Arusha National Park
Mount Meru (Arusha National Park)


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 Mt. Meru, Arusha National Park is an outstandingly beautiful area.

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.
