Day Tour Arusha National Park

Experience ‘Little Serengeti’, flocks of flamingoes in the Momella Lakes, drive through Ngurdoto Crater (similar to Ngorongoro Crater), and Tanzania’s second-highest mountain, Mount Meru.

Park size: 137 sq km (53 sq miles) only.
Mount Meru Facts Height: 4,566 meters (14,980 ft). A dormant stratovolcano. Last Eruption: 1910
