Lying between the peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru, Arusha National Park is an outstandingly beautiful area. The Park has a wide range of habitats, from the string of crater lakes where many water birds can be watched, through the highland mountain forest and on up to the imposing summit of Mount Meru.
The forests contain a wealth of birds and other animals, like the beautiful Bushbuck easily glimpsed in the glades between the ancient cedar trees, or the black and white Collubus monkeys climbing along their branches. The interesting geology of the area is reflected in the impressive view of the ash cone and cliff face leading to the summit of Mt. Meru.
