At its heart is the 4566m Mount Meru, Arusha National Park is less visited than the more famous Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, but it’s for you if you want a beautiful landscape with an incredible variety of flora and fauna.It has an awe-inspiring blend of vegetation which includes swamp, grasslands and montane forest and, of course, the mountain slopes of Meru which are swathed in tropical rainforest. It’s a unique eco-system that attracts thousands of animals and birds especially pink flamingoes.This Day trip will give you an opportunity of getting up close and personal to the animals on a walking safari, but also lets you take in the landscapes on a glorious game drive.
