The Arusha National Park is the closest park to Arusha town which is northern Tanzania’s safari capital. The Arusha National Park and Arusha town derive their name from the Wa-Arusha people who traditionally lived in this area.
A multi-faceted jewel, it offers great viewing of flora and fauna in a beguiling diversity of habitats.
Mount Meru at 4566m/14,980 feet stands at the near center of the park and offers hikers to climb it in 3 to 4 days.
