Arusha is a city in Northern Tanzania, Capital of the Arusha Region. It should more aptly be referred to as the Safari Capital of Tanzania! Within driving distance of Lake Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti, not many places in the world are surrounded by such an amazing choice of famous National Parks! If you are in Tanzania on Safari you will generally spend a night in Arusha, either before heading off for your Safari or on your return. The choice of accommodation in Arusha, like any African city, is broad. We have selected some lovely options that will compliment your safari vacation.

Kilimanjaro Airport is the access point for some International carriers into Tanzania and is about 45 minutes drive from Arusha. There is also a regional Airport in Arusha which generally carries the charter flight traffic for Safaris and smaller flights to local destinations. Arusha sits under the majestic Mount Meru and also has its own National Park on the slopes. When flying into Kilimanjaro Airport you may be lucky enough to get a glimpse of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Or you may be lucky enough to fly over it in the early morning before the cloud sets in! The highest mountain in Africa and the highest free standing mountain in the world, is a magnificent sight and so unexpected in this Safari country. If you are feeling that you want to conquer Africa’s highest Peak chat to one of our consultants for your best options.
