Arusha

Arusha National Park

Arusha National Park also contains the Momela Lakes, which is the best place to see many of the 400 plus species of birds in the park.

Each of the lakes has a slightly different color due to the different types of algae in them. Animals such as zebra, elephants, hyena, hippos, buffalo and warthogs are commonly sighted, but there are no lions or rhinos here due to poaching.

Some interesting trivia about Arusha; it was the location for various films, including the 1950 John Wayne film "Hatari" and "the Snows of Kilimanjaro" staring Gregory Peck and Ava Gardener.
