Arusha

4.2
Nestled in the verdant foothills of Mount Meru, Arusha remains the primary gateway and jump-off point for safaris into several national parks. Generally treated as little more than a stopover on the way to somewhere else, Arusha provides plenty of chances to get to know the "real" Tanzania. A vibrant nightlife scene and colorful marketplaces add to the city's dynamic vibe, while its location provides nature lovers with opportunities to climb Mount Meru or visit local coffee plantations. Safari agencies and operators provide organized tours of Arusha and its surroundings, offering experiences that range from short treks and day trips, to longer ventures to the Serengeti or Mount Kilimanjaro. Arusha is in Arusha Region. Customize your holiday with our Tanzania trip builder to create an adventure that suits you.
