Arusha national park is one of the beautiful spots to amaze yourself while travelling to the northern circuit. Characterized by the contrasting landscapes, an imaginary forest where Black and white colobus monkey chatter and play, Savannah and moorland, and the Momella lakes with acid pink flamingos, wallowing hippos, delicate herons and shaggy waterbucks. Giraffes, elephants and zebra roam the green foothills. Eagles and buzzards soar above the Ngurdoto crater.
Mount Meru is African fifth highest peak, a dormant volcano once worshipped as a rain god by Arusha and Meru people. Meru mountain provides challenging climbing and breathtaking scenery as an affordable alternative to Kilimanjaro.
