Arusha National Park

One of our best African tours, this 2-day short overnight safari combines two of Tanzania’s main safari destinations – Arusha National Park and Lake Manyara National Park, renowned for exceptional game-viewing and breathtaking sceneries.

Starting and ending in Arusha, Tanzania, this affordable short safari is ideal for travelers with a limited time and budget in East Africa! First, we explore Arusha National Park, located about 30 km south-west of Arusha town.

The park’s three most significant features include the Mount Meru (Tanzania’s second highest peak), the beautiful Momela Lakes and the 3 km wide Ngurdoto Crater. When the clouds are clear you can even see the snow-capped peaks of the Kilimanjaro.

Once at the park we explore the beautiful Arusha National Park on a game drive, enjoying the stunning scenery and spotting wildlife. The animal life in the park is abundant. You can spot the black-and-white Colobus Monkeys, Hippos, Giraffes, Buffaloes, Bushbucks, Hyenas and Leopards.

Also, more than 400 species of birds have been recorded in the park, such as Pelicans, Flamingos, Hornbills, Fish and Snake Eagles and Buzzards. We stop for a picnic lunch in the park and after our thrilling afternoon game viewing wildlife experience we head to our lodge/ camp for overnight.

Arusha National Park accommodation options include Hatari Lodge, Lake Duluti Serena Hotel, Mount Meru Game Lodge, Mount Meru Game Lodge, Arusha Safari Lodge and Moivaro Coffee Plantation Lodge.

The following morning, we depart from Arusha National Park and travel to Lake Manyara National Park. We explore the beautiful Lake Manyara Park on an afternoon game drive, enjoying the stunning scenery and spotting wildlife.

This national park lies in the Great Rift Valley, along the base of the steep Rift Valley escarpment, incorporating shallow soda lake and woodland areas. Lake Manyara is famous for the huge flamingo flocks fringing its shores, numbering in the thousands at times.

Over 400 bird species are found here, including migrant species and water birds, such as cormorants, geese, pelicans and storks. The compact Lake Manyara National Park is best known for its tree-climbing Lions and sizable Elephant population.

The park is also home to large troops of big Baboons, which are commonly sighted. Other wildlife inhabiting the park in abundance, includes Buffalo, Cheetah, Zebra, Masai Giraffe, Wildebeest and Impala.

There are also plenty of Warthogs, Hippos, Mongoose, Monkeys and various Antelope species, as well as some elusive Leopards.

We stop for a picnic lunch at the Msasa Picnic site which affords fabulous views of the lake and after our thrilling wildlife experience we drive back to Arusha, where our fantastic 2-day Tanzania short safari to the Northern Safari Circuit ends.
