Arusha National Park covers Mount Meru a prominent volcano with an elevation of 4566m, in the Arusha Region of north eastern Tanzania. The park is small but varied with spectacular landscapes,
Mount Meru is the second highest peak in Tanzania after Mount Kilimanjaro, which is just 60 km away from Moshi and forms a backdrop to views from the park to the east. Arusha National Park lies on a 300-kilometre axis of Africa's most famous national parks, running from Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater in the west to Kilimanjaro National Park in the east,
The park is just a few kilometres north east of Arusha, though the main gate is 25 km east of the city. It is also 60 km from Moshi and 35 km from Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA)
Arusha National Park has a rich variety of wildlife, but visitors shouldn't expect the same game-viewing experience they find in other national parks of Tanzania's northern circuit. Despite the small size of the park, common animals include giraffe, Cape buffalo, zebra, warthog, the black-and-white colobus monkey, the blue monkey, flamingo, elephant, bushbuck and many other African animals. Leopard populations are present, but rarely seen. Birdlife in the forest is prolific, with many forest species more easily seen here than elsewhere on the tourist route - Narina trogon and bar-tailed trogon are both possible highlights for visiting birders, whilst the range of starling species provide somewhat less gaudy interest.
Arusha National Park also pioneered the increasingly popular one-day safaris. But big - and dangerous - game such as elephant and buffalo still roam the park. Even transitory lions have been seen twice in the past decade or more, while secretive leopards are ever-present.At the Momella Gate possibly to find the African pencil cedar (Juniperus procera), To climb mount meru it need four days as the maximum number of days on the mountain and it need three days as the minimum number of days on the mountain.
