Idea for the weekends in Arusha


Hi All,

Does anyone have recommendations for what to do during my weekends here whilst working? I am keen to make the most of my time, explore the area around Arusha, and see some nature (obviously not expecting Serengeti-style experiences here).

I am hoping to do this on a budget, so can’t afford to be paying the Arusha National Park entry fee every weekend. Are there more cost-effective ways / areas to explore? Any ideas for places to visit / cheap excursions / places to go hiking would be appreciated.

Is a cheap, local weekend safari an option? It’s worth saying that I DON’T have a car / vehicle, but am happy to use public transport where available.

  1. There are so much options!

    Try Chemka hot spring, Ilkidinga village for cultural tourism and waterfalls, Visit materuni village and waterfalls, tour longido village, visit Lake duluti, a day tour to arusha national park etc.

    For Arusha park you need to hire a jeep, you can use small 4wd cars like Rav 4 to cut cost and the rest of the places you can use a mix of public bus and boda boda (Motorcycle).

    Karibu and Enjoy your stay in Tanzania,
