Arusha Tour Operators | Arusha Guide
Arusha Tour Operators: 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 tours and Safari from Arusha, and 4×4’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 is the best base for organizing visits to the northern parks. Mwanza-based operators also organise safaris into western Serengeti. For the southern parks, there’s no comparable hub, although most southern-focused operators have offices in Dar es Salaam. For Gombe and Mahale Mountains, Kigoma is the base for independent and budget travellers, while most upper-end safaris to these parks, and to Katavi, are organised out of Arusha as fly-in packages or – for Mahale and Katavi – as fly-in add-ons to a Ruaha safari. For land-based safaris to Katavi, good bases are Lake Shore Lodge in Kipili and Mpanda town. Mwanza and Bukoba are the starting points for Rubondo Island National Park.

Booking and paying for a safari before arriving in Tanzania is recommended if you’ll be travelling in popular areas during the high season. While costs may be 5% to 10% higher at the budget level for pre-booked safaris, advance booking enables you to minimise dealings with safari touts. They’re not all bad guys, but many are aggressive, slippery or both, and the whole experience can be somewhat intimidating. Pre-booking also minimises the amount of cash that you’ll need to carry.
If you wait to book your safari once in Tanzania, allow time to shop around and don’t rush into any deals.
Normally, major problems such as vehicle breakdown are compensated for by adding additional time to your safari. If this isn’t possible (eg if you have an onward flight), reliable operators may compensate you for a portion of the time lost. However, don’t expect a refund for ‘minor’ problems such as punctured tyres and so on. Park fees are also non-refundable. If you do get taken for a ride, the main avenue of recourse is to file a complaint with both the Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB; www.tanzaniatourism.com) and the Tanzanian Association of Tour Operators. The police will be of little help, and it’s unlikely that you will see your money again.
