Refresh Just Outside Arusha
Refresh Just Outside Arusha: There are several reasons you may find yourself wanting to know about some things to do in Arusha. There is a lot to do in this city, as it is a nice mix of busy Dar es Saalam and relaxed Moshi. This many-sided city is the place to start a safari trek through Arusha National Park, prepare to hike up Mount Meru or catching a quick flight to Zanzibar to soak up the island life. Question is what to do while waiting for these once in a lifetime adventures to start? Hang out time in between can be spent enjoying some local daily life or exploring nature’s gifts. These activities give you a chance to see unique features of Tanzania.
Refresh Just Outside Arusha: I would recommend a full day in any of the following places, to fully enjoy the unique nature of each place.
Themi Falls Leisure Park is located downstream, on one of the creeks flowing from Mount Meru. The park showcases tranquil beauty, with colorful gardens of indigenous plants and flowers. You can enjoy hiking trails thru the lush green forest and river beds, always coming across picturesque views. Make your way toward the waterfall and enjoy the hidden treasure. There is also a restaurant and bar on property, after the trek back to refresh and experience local foods and drinks.
Lake Duluti: A short ten minute dala dala ride East of Arusha, you will find the beautiful Lake Duluti. It’s a perfect place to canoe and take a nature walk. Lake Duluti Lodge has a wonderful restaurant and lounge for lunch. The lake is very peaceful and offers several ways to enjoy its beauty. Renting a canoe and paddling around the lake can be one to two hours or complete serenity. The area also has trails that border the lake and allow for beautiful views.
Arusha is also the gate way to Tanzania’s ancient national parks. You can embark on a day trip through the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest inactive volcanic caldera, where I saw wildebeest, zebra, ostriches, and lions. The views from the top of the crater are awe inspiring. Even a short day trip to Arusha National Park is great if you want to get up close with giraffes, warthogs, buffalos on a 2 hour walk through the bush.
