This park takes about an hour to get to from Arusha. This was our first outing of 18 days in Tanzania and Zanzibar. At the entrance you see hikers, bikers and only a sprinkling of safari rigs. Park guides await for a casual hike or...More

A beautiful experience with the chance to observe natures creatures as one is meant to; from a respectful distance and not behind bars. We saw giraffes, monkeys with red lipstick, zebras and few other beauties. Definitely visit.

Had a great day in Arusha Park with our guide Peter. A gentle introduction and warm up to our Serengeti safari! The giraffes were beautiful, flamingoes and lots of birds, cheeky monkeys and baboons all around . The walking safari also highly recommended.

This was my first time to visit this national park. We never regret because we enjoyed our visit. The walking tour was wonderful. Our Ranger Barack was amazing and perfomed beyond expectation. I recommend him.

Honestly, I don't know why this place isn't more recommended. The climate and landscape varies throughout the park, making it really interesting. This was the first safari I did in Tanzania, and it did not disappoint at all, I actually liked it more than Tarangire....More

Flash Safaris booked our entire site. Magda, an owner, is very helpful and accommodating. Inquire if she will do a one day trip. This park turned out to be one of our trip highlights btw.
