1 Day Safari Arusha National Park
Safari Overview – 1 Day safari to Arusha National Park is one of the short-day tours in Tanzania just about 52 km from Arusha town. It is just about a 1 hour and 3 minutes drive from Arusha to the park. Arusha National Park is Tanzania’s most accessible park because it is conveniently located and also the best place for walking and canoeing safaris.
Arusha National Park doesn’t have large predators but hosts Africa’s largest giraffe population, a variety of primates, and a number of large herbivores. This little Jewel of Tanzania is host to Mount Meru (4566m) which is a popular option for mountaineers who do not want to hike the high Kilimanjaro Mountain.
Less visited than the popular safari destinations in Tanzania, Arusha National Park has a beautiful landscape with an incredible variety of flora and fauna. The vegetation of the park is formed as a blend from the swamp, grassland, tropical and montane forest.
