Of course we are willing to show you some of the highlights of Arusha.
These highlights are part of our history so they are part of our lives.
However, Arusha Greeters also want to show the things that you will not find in a guidebook or are hard to discover if you are just wandering about.
Tarangire National Park
Located slightly off the main safari route, Tarangire National Park is a lovely, quiet park in Northern Tanzania. It is most famous for its elephant migration, birding, and authentic safari atmosphere. The majority of travellers to the region either miss out Tarangire altogether or venture into the park for a matter of hours – leaving swathes of Tarangire virtually untouched.
With a game viewing area that is roughly ten times the size of nearby Manyara NP and a concentration of game that is exceptional from July through to October, this seasonal Tanzania safari park is a little gem on the Northern safari circuit, especially if you love elephants!
Lake Manyara National Park
Lake Manyara National Park offers a wilderness experience in diverse habitats, from its Rift Valley soda lake to dense woodlands and steep mountainsides. Apart from a spectacular setting, the park is famous for its unusual tree-climbing lions and the vast elephant herds it was established to protect.
The shores of the lake, encrusted with pink flamingo, attract more than 400 species of birds, many of them waterfowl or migrants. Large herds of buffalo, cheetah, Masai giraffe and impala roam the lake shores and the forested valley slopes.
A Lake Manyara safari is a fascinating experience, as the park also features a ground-water forest, Acacia tortilis woodland and hot springs called Maji Moto. Troops of several hundred olive baboons appear alongside Sykes monkey and short-eared galago. Cape clawless otter, Egyptian mongoose, hippo, and klipspringer are other park residents.
The Ngorongoro Crater in Northern Tanzania, once a gigantic volcano, is the largest intact caldera in the world. Some maintain that before it erupted, it would have been higher than Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Today, long since having collapsed and eroded, it is an extensive highland area with the famous 600 m deep Ngorongoro Crater as its focal point. Nearly three million years old, the ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth.
Serengeti National Parks
Few people forget their first encounter with the Serengeti. Perhaps it’s the view from Naabi Hill at the park’s entrance, from where the grasslands appear to stretch to the ends of the earth. Or maybe it’s a coalition of lions stalking across open plains, their manes catching the breeze. Or it could be wildebeest and zebra migrating in their millions, following the ancient rhythm of Africa’s seasons. Whatever it is, welcome to one of the greatest wildlife-watching destinations on earth.

You can hike Kilimanjaro from different routes and a different number of days, There are six main routes to the top of Kilimanjaro which are Machame Route, Lemosho Route, Marangu Route, Rongai Route, Umbwe Route and Northern circuit Route, the easiest and cheapest route is Marangu route which you can climb up to 6 days if you are experienced with mountains, the highly recommended route is Machame route which you can do for 7 or 8 Days, as well as Rongai route but Lemosho route and Umbwe route, are the difficult route and you can take 8 to 9 Days depends on your fitness level.
