In heart of the Northern Tanzania safari circuit and at the foot of Mount Meru, Arusha is a charming town with loads of African appeal and many opportunities for unique Tanzanian experiences.
Arusha is often the starting point of spectacular safari adventures in Tanzania as it is surrounded by some of the best national parks on the African continent, and while it is most popular for being the gateway to major safari routes in the region, its undeniable African charm and beautiful scenery should not be overlooked.
Arusha offers many lovely places to stay, a wide choice of restaurants and cafes, a good couple of vibrant clubs offering live music and dancing and places to shop that include some busy markets with intriguing goods for sale. It’s a great example of a bustling and developing African city and most visitors, whether they prefer to sip coffee quietly in one of the cafes or jump right into the action of the nightlife, thoroughly enjoy watching and getting to know the local people. It’s a place where the beat of Africa is permanently present.
