Welcome to Tanzania! You will be met on arrival after passing through customs and immigration at Kilimanjaro International Airport and be transferred to your lodge, about an hour away in the town of Arusha, for dinner and overnight.
On day 2 meet your private guide and embark on your first game drive in Arusha National Park. You will take a picnic lunch and explore the “Little Serengeti” plains in the south, walk to stunning gorges and waterfalls in the north, and enjoy the tropical mountain rainforests. Experience the diverse fauna and flora along the Momella Lakes with its rich flamingo population and discover the secret haven of the hidden Ngurdoto Crater – nick-named “little Ngorongoro” due to its stunning beauty and rich wildlife. All these highlights are towered by the shining glaciers of Kilimanjaro and the horseshoe-like cliffs and the peak of Mt. Meru – occasionally covered with snow. Arusha National Park is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful destinations in Tanzania! When you are ready, you will head back to Arumeru River Lodge for dinner and overnight.
