Location: Arusha National Park, Tanzania
Specifics: Private 4×4 drive around the park
Before our climb of Kilimanjaro, we took the day to have a look around Arusha National Park. While it is one of the smallest national parks and doesn’t have as many species of the parks in Tanzania, it proved a great day trip for us. While there we saw giraffe, zebra, warthog, baboons, black and white colobus monkey, blue monkey and hippo. Elephant and lion are also reported to be in the park, however we didn’t see any unfortunately. The landscape view of Mt Meru is spectacular.
