Overview

The Arusha National Park, a small (137 sq km) but beautiful African park, is the closest Tanzanian National Wildlife Park to both the famous “safari town” of Arusha (29 km), as well as the Kilimanjaro International Airport, thus making it ideal for day safaris, even from Moshi (65 km). Not only is the wildlife in the Arusha National Park abundant, but it is also one of the most beautiful and topographically varied game reserves in Tanzania. The African Arusha National Park’s three most significant features include the rugged Mount Meru (Tanzania’s second highest peak at 456.

FAQs

How about accommodation?
It depends what you want, what you prefer. On safari you can choose between lodges that vary in size and style or campsites. Lodges are more expensive, but most of them are built to “fit” in to the environment where they are located and most of them have very good service. They are built in rondavel style with lounge in the center, restaurant and bar. There are 2 types of campsites. “Ordinary campsites” have toilets, fireplace and many times water taps. On the other hand there is “special campsites” that must be booked in advance and have only a pit toilet. All major cities in Tanzania have different kind of accommodation from guest house excellent luxury hotels. It’s your choice. We can make reservation in different kind of safari lodges, hotels, campsites, bungalows or guesthouses.
What kind of camera should I bring?
Africa is the photographer’s dream! A camera will record all those, unbelievable and spectacular sights you’ll want to share with friends. We suggest a good 35 mm camera with a 35-70 mm zoom lens, and a longer lens, such as an 80-200mm to capture the multitude of rare birds you see. More and more travelers are capturing all the thrills of safari on video cameras. Most lodges and camps have facilities for recharging your batteries. You may have to pay a nominal fee in some game parks for non-commercial use of video cameras. Unobstructed pictures can be taken through the roof hatch of your minibus. Remember that any vibration in the camera is magnified, so be sure to rest your arms on the body of the vehicle and request that the engine be turned off, if that’s possible. Note: Taking photographs at AIRPORTS, HARBORS, and MILITARY INSTALLATIONS is prohibited. Your entire roll of film may be confiscated. In many tombs, temples or ‘closed’ museums, you may be asked to pay a fee of $3 for taking photographs, or $30 for use of a video camera. As a protective measure to protect the color of ancient art, some tombs and temples do not allow the use of a flash, or strobe
What kinds of animals will I see?
In a typical day you can expect to see 15 to 20 animal species- lions, elephants, giraffes and rhinos, to name a few. Buffalo and wildebeest may be in herds of hundreds or more. Others, like the swift cheetah, are more likely to be found alone. And then there are the birds, over 300 species! Birds in Africa are particularly colorful and easy to spot. Even if you’ve never looked at a bird before, with the help of your driver you’ll easily learn to identify twenty to thirty of the most striking and beautiful birds of Africa. Experienced birders can expect to see 60 to 100 different species in a single day. A special thrill is in store if your safari coincides with the annual wildebeest migration. You’ll see thunderous herds of wildebeest and zebra, totaling more than 1 million, stretching across the horizon. On their trail follow the predators the big cats, and the scavenger’s hyenas, jackals and vultures. Whenever you go, you’ll see animals as you’ve never seen them before roaming free, just as they have for millions of years.
Who will be my guide?
All groups and individual travelers will be provided with an English speaking Tanzanian guide. Some of the guides also speak Spanish or German. They are trained and experienced in leading trips and knowledgeable about the fauna, flora and many more aspects of their country. Often they become lifelong friends with the travelers. Interactions with staff are often the highlight of people’s trips. It is a great way to get to know the real life of Tanzania.
Can I do Safari after Kilimanjaro?
From different local operators, they will with asking you to fill in the booking enquiry form. This will help them understand when you want to start the trek and the route you have chosen. As well as the entire planning of your trip. Once the dates, accommodation and the route have been chosen they will require a deposit in order to confirm the booking. You have to be careful on this as some can be con-men. We recommend you to fill in the form below so that we can assist with recommending the perfect tour operators for you.
Is tipping a custom?
Tipping is very much appreciated. Staff is usually doing their best to make your trip unforgettable and in this case tips on the last day of your trip are common. In first place you need to think how much they did to make your trip unforgettable. We will give some hint how much to tip your guide, driver etc. In case of exceptional service tip for a driver or tour guide should be 15$-20$ per day, for a cook 10-15$ per day (only on camping safari when you have your own cook, not in lodges), for porters (in a hotel, not Kilimanjaro porters), waiters etc. 1$ per service.
