ARRIVE AT ARUSHA

THE SAFARI GATEWAY OF TANZANIA

Arusha is located at the foot of Mt. Meru, close to Mount Kilimanjaro, the Manyara, Tarangire and Ngorongoro National Parks. From there it’s only a short trip to the Serengeti. Just to the north, on the slopes of Mt. Meru is the Arusha National Park. 

 

Built by the Germans as a centre of colonial administration because of the temperate climate, Arusha is a good spot to take a day or two off from your safari.

TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK

INTO THE WILD

After the Serengeti, Tarangire has the highest concentration of wildlife in Tanzania. Visitors in the dry season will be treated to hordes of thirsty wildlife at the Tarangire River. Large herds of elephants and migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland gather and not surprisingly the predators follow.

This is also the only place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as oryx and gerenuk are regularly spotted.
