The Arusha National Park covers an area of 137 square kilometres and was established in 1960. It has three distinct zones that contribute park variety and beauty, Ngurdoto Crater, the Momella lakes and Mount Meru. The vegetation and wildlife found in the park are determined by altitude and geography of the different areas.
