This Day trip will give you an opportunity of getting up close and personal to the animals on a walking safari, but also lets you take in the landscapes on a glorious game drive.

After breakfast we depart
Arusha City or Moshi Town at 8:00 am for the drive to Arusha National Park. Once you arrive, youll stretch your legs on an
out-of-this-world walking safari, accompanied by a ranger who will guide you through rainforest up to a sparkling waterfall where youll be able to spot black and white colobus monkeys going about their day. After a tasty
lunch on the picnic site youll hop in the Land Cruiser for a game drive that will take you through a wider scope of the park, including the
Lakes of Momella dotted with pin flamingoes
and the Ngurduto Crater, and youll most likely spot
buffalo, waterbuck, giraffe, warthogs, zebra and gazelle as well as a host of different bird species. If youre lucky youll catch a glimpse of the shy leopard or elephant. Dont forget your camera! After the drive, youll be driven back to ARusha City or Moshi Town.
