The Arusha National Park, founded in 1960, is located in Northern Tanzania and is a hidden jewel that few travelers visit, making a big mistake.
 
While in fact, in the park, there are neither lions nor rhinos, on the other hand you can spot many other animals, difficult to see elsewhere in Tanzania.
 
Also from a landscape point of view, it is one of the most beautiful parks of East Africa, indeed inside are savannah, rainforest and mountain wilderness, the caldera of an extinct volcano and an active volcano and, last but not least, a spectacular view, on clear days, of the Kilimanjaro Mount; a visit to this park means to cross a number of different and wonderful habitats within a few hours of game drive, making the visit unique.
 
Finally, its proximity to the city of Arusha and the Kilimanjaro airport make the Arusha National Park the perfect place to spend some time in nature, rather than staying in the city.
