Arusha Town is Tanzania's Safari capital.

Located at an altitude of 1500m this laidback small town has 500 000 tourist pass through it yearly.

It is overlooked by a dormant volcano, Mount Meru and has a vibrant nightlife and excellent restaurants, do go out to a nyama choma place and try the local barbeque, apart from goat meat and chicken, fish from fresh water lakes is also common at places like Nicks Pub towards Njiro.

Try mtori- a banana and meat stew for breakfast.

We highly recommend staying at least one night in Arusha before safari start and possibly a second night after safari ends as most connecting flights and buses would have left, safaris usually get back well after 1600HRS, and not until the following morning will you catch your travel connection at leisure.

This gives you time to rest before heading out on your adventures and sort out any luggage issues.

Surrounded by some of the most fascinating and varied national parks in Africa, Arusha sits snugly in a wide expanse of fertile volcanic land in the foothills of Kilimanjaro's little brother, Mount Meru.

Arusha is the starting point for Tanzania's Northern Circuit safaris; many safaris start from here every day. But viewing Arusha simply as a safari centre is not doing it justice; it really is one of Tanzania's beautiful regions and the town itself has a very welcoming feel.

Arusha is at the heart of Tanzania's safari industry – virtually everyone visiting Tanzania’s Northern parks will travel through this town.

The streets are lined with tour operators selling safaris, and 4x4’s seem to be setting off at every turn.

However, Arusha is definitely more than just a safari town; it has superb views of Kilimanjaro and with a number of coffee plantations situated around the edge of town, it is a great place to stay for a day or two before heading out on safari.

Arusha National Park is also a great distraction for a full or half day game drive. Although the park lacks predators, it is unquestionably beautiful.

It is very quiet and has a wide variety of animals and superb birdlife.

You can also spend an afternoon canoeing on the lake - a great thing to do if you have a late flight home!

The main feature of the park is Mount Meru, which is much more of a technical climb than Kilimanjaro, and a great challenge for more experienced climbers.

Arusha: Accommodation choices
There are hotels both inside the town centre and a number of coffee plantations set roughly 30 minutes drive outside.

The Impala Hotel or Roy Safaris' African Tulip provide good budget accommodation.

We prefer a more personal, atmospheric experience, and wholly recommend the four bedroom Onsea House - an instant hit at such a good price - followed closely by Rivertrees and Elewana’s luxurious, although pricey, Arusha Coffee Lodge.

Recommended lodges in this area:

We can help you book and reserve most hotels, resorts, lodges and camps in and around Arusha Town.
