Tanzania Day Trip Ideas Just Tailor made for You


Located just 45 minutes’ drive from the city of Arusha, Arusha National Park is Tanzania's most accessible park in more ways than one. It is not only conveniently located, but it is also the best place to embark on walking and canoeing safaris - putting you closer to the action than anywhere else in the country!

While Arusha National Park has no large predators, it is home to Africa's largest giraffe population, a variety of primate species, and a number of large herbivores.

It is the perfect day out for a family or those wanting something different to the standard game drive experience.


After breakfast, you will depart from your hotel in Moshi and drive to the park.

Your visit to Arusha National Park is a flexible one, as you will have three choices as to how you would like to experience the park.

Game Drive: You can embark on a half-day or full-day game drive through the park. Your drive will pass you past park landmarks such as the Momella Lakes and Ngurdoto Crater - sometimes known as 'Small Ngorongoro'.

Canoe Safari: Available at extra cost, you will trade the car for a canoe as you take a guided canoe safari out on the Momella Lakes to see bushbuck, giraffes, hippos, and buffalo.

Walking Safari: Stretch your legs with a gudied walking safari through the park. While on your walking safari, you can expect to see endless acres of forest, home to black and white colobus monkeys, zebras, buffalos, and a variety of antelopes. You will also have a chance to observe more than 400 bird species including the Crowned Eagle, Lanner Falcon, and Levaillant’s cuckoo.
