Arusha’s international airport is Kilimanjaro airport, approx. 45 minutes from the town centre, while Arusha airport is the domestic airport used for fly-in safaris, approx. 15 minutes from the town. If you’re transferring between the two airports it should take around an hour. The often overlooked Arusha National Park is dominated by a beautiful backdrop of Mount Meru. Visit Ngurudoto Crater and the Momella lakes – a group of shallow alkaline lakes, each a different shade green or blue, which are home to many water birds including flamingos, Egyptian geese and fowls. The park also provides habitat for giraffes, zebra, dik-diks and buffalo.
