At Leisure in Arusha Town
If time constraints permit, many visitors will choose to allow for a day’s leisure to be spent in Arusha prior before their safari. If you do opt for this, you are of course at liberty to simply wander into town from your hotel on your own.
If however you wish to have someone to assist you in showing you the sites, such as the local market, some crafts and souvenir shops, etc, you can look for help from your Hotel or ask us for recommendations . The cost to have a guide assist you will be around 20 if walking, with additional charges if transport is required. Safari-goers will generally tip the guide also.
A phenomenon of which you should be aware is that when out and about in East Africa it is very common indeed to be approached by ‘fly catchers’, local people who are aiming to make commissions by assisting you in buying anything from small souvenirs and pieces of locally-mined Tanzanite, to another safari with a local operator.
Many visitors have described such attentions as annoying and unwelcome. This factor should be considered when deciding whether you wish to move alone through town or request the assistance of a guide who will be able to fend off any unwelcome attentions.
