The oft-overlooked Arusha National Park offers some of the most breathtaking scenery in Northern Tanzania. Arusha National Park includes Mount Meru, and game highlights include giraffe, cape buffalo, elephant, zebra, flamingo and hippo. Several primate species including black and white colobus monkey, Syke’s monkey and vervet monkey thrive in the tropical forests. The patient ornithologist will be rewarded with opportunities to spot elusive forest birds such as Hartlaub’sTuraco. Bush walks and canoe safaris are permitted in Arusha National Park.
