Product Description

Highlights

  • A green jewel and home to the fourth highest mountain in Africa – Mount Meru (4,566 m). Anyone visiting this park will be thrilled by the breathtaking landscapes ranging from the Meru Crater in the west, the Ngurdoto Crater in the south-east to the grasslands and of course the alkaline Momela lakes in the north-east​
  • This park is often overlooked by visitors, worried they will not see that much wildlife. However, Arusha National Park has such a lot to offer and dazzles with a perfect mix of flora and fauna and diversified landscapes. Passing the park during a game drive, you are likely to spot peaceful herds of buffaloes, shy bushbucks on the edge of the forest as well as warthogs and zebras. Heading towards the Ngurdoto Crater you will soon find yourself in a lush rainforest – a great place to spot the athletic black and white colobus monkey as well as the elegant mitis monkey. The Ngurdoto Crater is basically a smaller version of the Ngorongoro Crater and has a diameter of about 3 km. With a bit of luck, you might even spot buffaloes in the swamps on the crater floor​
  • Due to the low numbers of predators in the park, walking safaris are permitted. This is a must for anyone wanting to get a closer look at the moss covered trees and the occasional red hot pokers as well as for those wanting to get up close to wildlife. Most common sightings whilst on a walking safari include buffaloes, warthogs, giraffes and a variety of birds such as the silvery cheeked hornbill, little bee-eater and the occasional long crested eagle. The walk takes visitors to the refreshing Tululusia waterfalls and back to the Momela gate​
  • On the way towards the Momela Lakes, visitors are in for a treat as common waterbucks and reedbucks love to hang around the lake shore. An array of water birds like cormorants, kingfishers and beautiful flamingos are also often spotted. There are seven alkaline lakes to be seen and each lake

has a different salt concentration. Visitors also have the option of going on a canoe trip on the small Momela Lake​
  • Arusha National Park is also home to about a handful of African elephants but due to their constant movement they are hardly ever spotted. The same goes for leopards which roam the vast foggy forests of Mt Meru​

Step Bush Safaris

The Step Bush Safaris team welcomes you to visit Tanzania and experience our part of the continent for the adventure it offers. We are the true experts when it comes to Tanzania and we arrange lodge and camping safaris as well as Mount Kilimanjaro climbs. Besides beautiful scenic safaris in Tanzania, we also organize relaxing beach stays on the shores of the Indian Ocean on either Tanzania’s mainland or on the beautiful islands of Zanzibar and Pemba. Our guiding principle is to work with each client, family and group in an individual way. We encourage you to work with us, discussing your interests, style of travel, budget, time frame and any other factors that would influence your trip – to come up with an itinerary best suited to you, your family or group. Noting that some have said that travel to Africa is not inexpensive, our tours offer the best value for your money. We provide 7-seater custom safari Toyota Land Cruisers with pop-up roofs ideal for game viewing and sightseeing. The vehicles are well maintained to provide maximum level of comfort and safety and are fitted with HF long range radios for easy communication. The vehicles are fully equipped with cool-boxes and first aid kits, as well as guide books on wildlife, birds and plants of Tanzania. We know this for a fact! The success of your safari or climb will largely depend on your driver/guide. It is because of this that we have a great team of carefully selected driver guides, well trained and experienced and with a vast knowledge of the wildlife and animal behavior as well as the local fauna and flora. Our Kilimanjaro guides are all Kilimanjaro National Park trained and licensed, and specifically chosen for our upbeat and adaptable personalities. More importantly, we know the importance of acclimatization and will make sure you trek "pole pole - slow slow", giving you the best chance of summiting the mountain. To make it is easy and convenient for the traveller, all our safaris and climbs depart daily with a minimum of 2 persons booking. We do this to allow our itineraries/safaris/climbs fit into your schedule, and prices are based on number of people in a travel group, so more participants more affordable. Please provide us with this information during your first enquiry to help us send you a most appropriate quotation.
