CIRCUS MAMA AFRICA   (published in Tanzania)

March 25, 2011 by   Comments(0)

Last Saturday we went to Circus Mama Africa here in Arusha, The event has been supported by Projects Abroad Tanzania. It was so fun. I’ve visited many circuses in Japan and China before but Mama Africa is the best because of their music and dance and of course, their acrobatics were incredible, so I happened to wonder if they have the backbone!

ARUSHA NATIONAL PARK.Written by Tanzania Social Manager   (published in Tanzania)

March 15, 2011 by   Comments(0)

Beautiful Arusha National park is the closet national Park to Arusha Town. Is one of the few Nationa Park in Tanzania to allow walking safaris. The park contains a variety of habitats including forest. The National Park covers Mount Meru, a prominent volcano with an elevation of 4566 meters, in the Arusha Region of north eastern Tanzania.

The Park is very close to Arusha towns and Moshi. It is ideally day trip destination even for visitors who are attending seminars, workshops, business in Arusha and Moshi. Unlike other national Park in Tanzania, here visitors can see variety of wildlife in different habitants within a short time.

Game drive is therefore one of the popular tourism activities in Arusha national park. The park’s highlight can easily be seen in a day. The two main game drive circuit are around Momella lakes and Ngurdoto crater. However there are other several sub game circuits that either joints the main circuit or takes into quite different habitats with different attractions. Game is plentiful along these particularly scenic routes but contact with other visitors in frequent.


The park can be accessed from Arusha town, which is about 32 kilometres. It is about 4o kilometres from Kilimanjaro International Air port. The park can be easily reached by road.

When to visit

The park can be visited throughout the year. The weather is best between June and February. Short rain is usually experienced in November. There are no Mosquitoes or tsetse flies in this park throughout.


The park is small but varied with spectacular landscapes in three distinct areas. In the west, the Meru Crater funnels the Jekukumia River; the peak of Mount Meru lies on its rim. Ngurdoto Crater in the south-east is grassland. The shallow alkaline Momella Lakes in the north-east have varying algal colours and are known for their wading birds.

Mount Meru is the second highest peak in Tanzania after Mount Kilimanjaro, which is just 60 km away and forms a backdrop to views from the park to the east. Arusha National Park lies on a 300-kilometre axis of Africa's most famous national parks, running from Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater in the west to Kilimanjaro National Park in the east.

Arusha National Park has a rich variety of wildlife, but visitors shouldn't expect the same game-viewing experience they find in other National Parks of Tanzania's northern circuit. Despite the small size of the park, common animals include giraffe, buffalo, zebra, warthog, the black-and-white colobus monkey, the blue monkey, flamingos and more. African Elephant are present, but rarely seen, similarly Leopard, but there are no lion in the park. Birdlife in the forest is prolific, with many forest species more easily seen here than elsewhere on the tourist route - Narina Trogon and Bar-tailed Trogon are both possible highlights for visiting birders, whilst the range of starling species provide somewhat less gaudy interest.

We stayed at Ungalimited Arusha, we real like the place and everybody there is very lovely. Our Host Shirima’s Family is the best. They cook good food and they real take care of us. They always ask if we are okay and if there is something we need, the family is so lovely.

At the orphanage, in the beginning it was bit hard and we didn’t know what to do. We go to the office and ask what to do. We ask Eliafura and she advice us a lot and we plan for our own time table and come out with MIKARO GAME. We introduce Mikaro game. We make it out of stick and we teach children how to play with it and they real like it. Sometimes Thomas plays guitar and everybody like it.

We also make boxing training with all the guys and they real like it. There were no translators with us. The first week was hard but there after we manage the environment as some of the children at the orphanage speak English and they translate to others.

We real like being here with Projects Abroad and we always call when we have problem and all staff are good. We really like how they organise the first day of our arrival to Tanzania, picking us from the Bus station and brought us to the host family. We also like social events organised by Projects Abroad.  We really enjoy
