          I'm arriving on 7/2 for a Tauck safari. I wanted to obtain the availability and cost of day trips to Arusha national park on 7/3. I'm traveling solo. Is there a group that I can join? Thank you

          We will be arriving after a total of 15 hrs flying time. Is there an area to walk safely. Will need to get my body out of sitting mode and for me that mean a long walk.

          You can book a walk to and around the lake. That should be helpful.
