Ngurdoto Crater

Tanzania is blessed with many tourist attraction, we will take you to ever inch of better attraction in Tanzania.
This crater, located inside the Arusha National Park and stretching 3 km's across, is a steep-sided bowl, surrounded by riverine forest, while the crater floor is a lush swamp. The crater with its many visible animal trials, provides a natural sanctuary to many African animals, including elephant, African buffalo, a variety of monkeys and baboons, as well as birds like hamerkop, spur-winged geese and herons. It is however unfortunately prohibited to descend down to the bottom of the crater. To the west of the crater lies Serengeti Ndogo or "Little Serengeti", consisting of an extensive grassland plain and it is one of the few places in the game reserve, where Zebra can be encountered. Please refer to the map below for further details, images and safari information guide on this awesome and picturesque wildlife reserve in Tanzania.

Momema Lakes

One of the place that MEM tours and Safaris Would like to take you while your in Arusha tour is Momela Lakes.
The Momela lakes, also located inside the Arusha National Park, are shallow alkaline lakes and are made up of seven lakes, being big Momela, small Momela, El Kekhotoito, Kusare, Rishateni, Lekandiro and Tulusia. All seven lakes are mainly fed by separate underground water sources. Due to the varying mineral content of these underground sources, each lake supports a different type of algae growth, resulting in uniquely differently colored lakes. Because these lakes are alkaline, the water is not utilized by animals for drinking, but they do however attract a wide variety of African bird life, particularly flamingos.

Mount Meru

The love of mountains runs deep at MEM Tours and Safaris Ltd, thus why we will climb with you up to the top of mount Meru
Mount Meru, the fifth highest African mountain forms part of the Arusha National Park, and is a recommended 4-day climb. One of Africa's most rewarding climbs, offering spectacular scenery, and guaranteed wildlife animals encounters on its forested slopes. The summit cone features a stunning asymmetric caldera complete with an ash cone in the crater. The cone in itself, makes a climb to the summit worthwhile. Climbs should be booked in advance, as an armed game reserve ranger of the Arusha National Park must accompany climbers. You are invited to contact us should you require more detailed information on climbing Mt. Meru.
