Following your Trek Kilimanjaro challenge, a late flight departure allows for free time on the final day of your trip itinerary. For those who would like to take this opportunity to head out for some wildlife viewing, we have created an optional Day Safari in Arusha National Park. Even when short of time, it’s worthwhile to experience a safari when in Tanzania and Arusha National Park offers a huge diversity, easily accessed from Moshi within a few hours. For those who aren’t able to join our Ngorongoro Safari Trip Extension, this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a taster of the sights synonymous with the great open African Plains first hand.
An early morning transfer from Moshi will take you to Arusha National Park for a day of wildlife viewing. The park offers stunning scenery, with views of Mount Meru, lush highland forests, the Momella Lakes and rolling grassy hills. In clear visibility, views of the majestic snow-capped peaks of Kilimanjaro can be seen on the eastern horizon, a poignant reminder of what you’ve just achieved. This park is inhabited by a range of resident wildlife, offering a chance to spot the rare colobus monkey, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, hippopotamus, many species of antelope, smaller mammals and birdlife. Although uncommon, elephants have at times been spotted here too. There’s nothing quite like seeing these animals in their natural environment! You will return to Moshi in the late afternoon.
This outline gives you an idea of what you will do and may see on safari, but bear in mind that your guides will adapt according to local conditions and wildlife sightings in the park. Wildlife viewings of all animals cannot be guaranteed.
Requires a minimum of 4 people. Please contact us for more details.

Your safety, and that of the rest of the group, is our highest priority. Our trips are designed and planned with safety in mind. Your crew will be equipped with communication devices (eg phones, radios and/or emergency satellite phones), medical kit and other safety apparatus appropriate to the destination. Our leaders always have access to our 24-hour emergency UK back-up. They are responsible for safety on the trip, and will make any changes to the itinerary they deem necessary, should local conditions dictate. Pre-trip administration - such as medical questionnaires and travel insurance as appropriate - is all done with your safety in mind.
