Mawenzi Adventures


Home to Mount Meru, Arusha National Park is one of the smaller parks in Tanzania. It’s perfect for a day trip, not only thanks to its size but also because of its proximity to both Arusha and Moshi. It’s the only park that offers this advantage. So if you’re on a budget or have a strict time limit, this might just be the perfect trip for you. Don’t worry, the diversity of wildlife and landscapes is incredible, and you won’t be disappointed!

We’ll pick you up from your accommodation in Arusha (Moshi is also possible at a small supplement) in the morning and drive for about 45 min – 1 hour before we reach the entrance of Arusha National Park. Today you’ll spend half the day discovering the park by jeep, and the other half is dedicated to a walking safari. Yes, you read that right! Arusha National Park is one of the few parks to offer this option, and we highly recommend it as it allows you to get really close to the animals. The departure time of your walking safari depends on the park’s planning but the walk always takes around 4 hours. If you wish to skip the walking, we can also arrange a full-day game drive for you, please just let us know during your reservation. 

You’ll almost certainly see zebras, giraffes, baboons, buffalos and colobus monkeys, and with a bit of luck maybe you’ll even spot an elephant or a leopard. The landscapes are stunning as well, with the Momella lakes and the Ngurdoto crater as absolute highlights. Around the lakes, you’ll also be able to see hundreds or thousands of flamingos. 

Duration: +- 12 hours

Driving time: 3 hours, return + game drive

Don’t forget: good walking shoes
