aRUSHA NATIONAL PARK
One of Tanzania’s most beautiful and topographically varied protected areas, the park is dominated by Mt Meru, an almost perfect volcanic cone with a spectacular crater. It also shelters Ngurdoto Crater (often dubbed Little Ngorongoro), with its swamp-filled floor and lost-world feel.

MT. MERU TREKKING
Mt. Meru is indeed the perfect preparation for a Kilimanjaro climb. It offers you a taste of what you can expect on Kili: You trek in a group with porters, cook and guides, you climb through different vegetation zones over several days, you start your summit attempt around midnight and reach the peak around sunrise, and you then descend an awesome 2000 metres on the same day, very similar to your Kilimanjaro summit day.
GAME VIEW SAFARI
The most common animals found in this park are the Abyssinian black and white colobus monkeys, the Vervet monkeys, the red forest duikers, hippos, elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, bushbucks and sometimes the leopard. More than 400 species of birds have been recorded in the park including Eurasian migrants, which can be seen between October and April.
Walking safari in Tanzania: The most authentic safari experience Walking safaris are the purest form of safari. Walking safaris in Tanzania are completely different to game drives. On foot you are a participant in the world of wildlife rather than a spectator, which is a thrilling safari experience.
