This naturally diverse national park is only a stones throw from Arusha town and is probably one of the quietest national parks in the region in terms of tourist numbers. There is beautiful dense vegetation and great hiking opportunities thanks to the national park also being the base starting point for treks up Mt Meru.
Size: 542 sq km – among Tanzania's smallest national parks
Location: 35 km or around 45 min drive from Arusha town – making this an easy day trip from your Arusha based accommodation.
Weather: Dry season generally runs June to October and wet season November to May. The small rainy season runs December – February. March to April is the highest rainfall generally recorded and the lowest is generally July to September.
No lodges inside the park but many surrounding the entrance. A public camp site inside the park, although as mentioned previously most people like to make this as a day trip and stay in Arusha or nearby.
