Attractions of Destination
The Momela Lakes, Ngurdoto Crater, and the rich highland forests that cover its lower slopes are all included in Arusha National Park, as well as the slopes, summit, and ash cone of Mount Meru, which may be reached by three days of hiking.
While going through the forest, many visitors pause to look for groups of rare Colubus monkeys playing in the canopy. Game viewing in the area of the Momela Lakes is done at a leisurely and tranquil pace.
Climate of Destination
The weather in Arusha National Park is often nice and mild. It rarely gets hot during the day and is typically cool to cold at night and in the morning.
The “long rains” (March to May) and the “short rains” (June to September) are the two distinct wet seasons (November to December). Even though it is rainy season, it is uncommon for it to rain all day. Instead, there are afternoon thundershowers. Arusha National Park, which includes Mount Meru and the region around the mountain’s foot, experiences a little bit higher precipitation and cloud cover.
