Arusha National Park
This is relatively Small Park beautiful. Arusha NPis the closest national park to Kilimanjaro International Airport, which is just 18 miles (30 km) away from famous Arusha “safari town,” making this an ideal 1-day safari. The park has an incredible variety of fauna and flora, which cannot fail to impress you. Hollywood also chose this region to film the movie “Hartari” in which Hardy Kruger starred alongside the legendary John Wayne. Your day trip will include a visit to the Ngurdoto Crater, often labeled as the “Little Ngorongoro Crater. Buffaloes, waterbucks, giraffes, warthogs, zebras and Guereza can be seen all year round as well as many different bird species. The elephants are more shy at Arusha NP than the elephants in the Tarangire and Serengeti National Parks. Occasionally, one may also spot a leopard. At the Momella Gate, an armed ranger will be waiting to accompany you on your walking safari, which takes about 1-2hrs. This will give you a chance to experience the wildlife and nature up-close.
