Arusha – Safari City
Arusha is the gateway to northern Tanzania, meaning most travellers to the country will find themselves there at some point during their trip. This leafy city sits at the foot of Mount Meru and near Kilimanjaro, the highest African peak.
The city is a pleasant place to spend a day or two before or after a safari or Kilimanjaro trek. Enjoy coffee in a sunny garden cafe or tuck into a proper nyama choma barbecue feast accompanied by cold Kilimanjaro Lager. It’s also an opportunity to stock up on souvenirs like beaded jewellery, tanzanite gems and bright fabrics.
Outside the often-congested city centre, there are plenty of opportunities to stretch your legs. Hike the slopes of Mount Meru, play a round of golf at the 18-hole championship Kilimanjaro Golf Club, canoe across Lake Duluti or horse-ride alongside giraffes at Dolly Estate.
