A Paradise of Biodiversity

Nestled at the foothills of Mount Meru, Arusha National Park is a treasure trove of biodiversity. Covering approximately 137 square kilometers, this park is a fascinating tapestry of habitats ranging from montane forest to savanna. Each corner of the park offers something unique, making it a must-visit destination for anyone looking to experience the true essence of Tanzania.

Flora and Fauna

The park’s diverse habitats are home to an equally diverse array of wildlife. From the inquisitive blue monkeys swinging through the treetops to the majestic giraffes gracefully grazing in the savannas, Arusha National Park provides endless opportunities for wildlife viewing. Don’t miss the chance to spot the elusive colobus monkeys, with their striking black and white fur, or the vibrant array of birdlife that calls the park home. Over 400 species of birds have been recorded here, making it a birdwatcher’s paradise.

The Majestic Mount Meru

One of the park’s most iconic features is Mount Meru, the second highest peak in Tanzania standing at 4,566 meters. Often overshadowed by its towering neighbor, Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru offers a challenging yet rewarding climb. The trek to the summit is an adventure unto itself, passing through diverse ecosystems and offering stunning vistas along the way.

A Trekker’s Dream

For avid trekkers, the climb up Mount Meru is an exhilarating experience. The route takes you through lush forest, home to buffalo, giraffe, warthogs, and monkeys. As you ascend, the landscape changes dramatically, and you’ll be treated to breathtaking views of the ash cone nestled within the crater. Reaching the summit at sunrise, with the sun casting a golden glow over Kilimanjaro in the distance, is a moment you’ll never forget.

Momella Lakes: A Symphony of Colors

Another highlight of Arusha National Park is the Momella Lakes, a series of seven shallow alkaline lakes, each with its own distinct hue. The lakes are a haven for waterbirds, including flamingos, pelicans, and a variety of ducks. The vibrant pink flocks of flamingos against the backdrop of the verdant landscape create a picture-perfect scene that is sure to captivate any nature lover.

Canoeing Adventures

For those looking to get even closer to the action, Lyimo Expeditions offers canoeing safaris on the Momella Lakes. Glide quietly across the water, getting up close and personal with the birds and other wildlife that inhabit the lakeshores. This unique perspective allows for unparalleled wildlife viewing and stunning photographic opportunities.

The Enigmatic Ngurdoto Crater

Often referred to as the “Little Ngorongoro,” the Ngurdoto Crater is a volcanic caldera that offers a miniature version of its famous counterpart. The crater’s floor is a lush swamp, surrounded by steep walls covered in dense forest. While visitors are not allowed to descend into the crater, several viewpoints around the rim provide spectacular views of this hidden world.

Wildlife Encounters

The crater is home to a variety of wildlife, including buffalo, elephants, and warthogs. The dense forest on the crater walls is also a sanctuary for primates, such as colobus monkeys and blue monkeys. A drive around the rim offers a wonderful opportunity to spot these animals in their natural habitat.

A Haven for Birdwatchers

Arusha National Park is a birdwatcher’s delight, with an impressive array of bird species. From the striking Hartlaub’s turaco with its iridescent feathers to the regal crowned eagle, the park is a symphony of bird calls and colors. Whether you are a seasoned birder or a novice, the rich avian diversity will leave you in awe.
