After a leisurely breakfast you will depart for Arusha National Park,once the site of the action packed Hollywood movie Hatari, starring John Wayne and Hardy Kruger. Set between the slopes of Mt. Meru and Mt. Kilimanjaro this small park is one of Tanzania’s hidden gems and one of the few places where you will have a chance to see the rare Black & White Colobus monkeys.
The parks contains a series of shimmering alkaline lakes, which attract flamingo’s and a variety of birds, along with elephant, buffalo, zebra, gazelle, wart hog, hippo and an amazing number of giraffe. One of the highlights of today’s visit is a short walk to a viewing area overlooking the miniature Ngurdoto Crater, which is completely reserved for the animals.
Enjoy a picnic lunch and a short walk on the Mt. Meru side, before heading back to Arusha arriving at the Lodge in the afternoon. Relax for the rest of the day.
