Arusha is the jumping-off point for Tanzania’s most famous national parks—a lively city with a lush, temperate climate at the base of volcanic Mount Meru. Before heading farther afield on safari, spend a day exploring less-visited Arusha National Park to whet your appetite for spotting big game in the other parks. Watch for Cape buffalo, giraffe, zebra, shaggy waterbucks, flamingos and more during a full-day game drive—and enjoy an atmospheric picnic at our special campsite mid-way through the day.
