Arusha Ngurdoto National Park.

Background Information
With 117 square miles, the Arusha Park is an extremely interesting area being located on the side of Mount Meru which, while having thick forested slopes rises dramatically into the sky representing a classical extinct volcanic cone.
The Ngurdoto Park is famous for its unique crater, the thick highland rain forest sections, acacia woodland and string of seven crater lakes of Momella. However, the miniature Ngurdoto crater has been set aside as a reserve within a reserve. Down inside is a wealth of wildlife buffalo, elephant, rhino and many other animals, but no lions. This 2.4 kilometer wide crater is closed to man and is a sanctuary for wildlife only.
The beautiful Marinas trogon is found in the forests, as is the crowned hawk eagle, the African broad bill and the broad ringed white eye.
