About Arusha

Sitting high in northern Tanzania, Arusha is considered the gateway to some of Africa’s best safari experiences. The sprawling savannas of Serengeti National Park are just a stone’s throw to the north-west and are a great place to spot the Big Five. The city itself is built at the foot of Mount Meru, a dormant stratovolcano that towers more than 4,500 metres above the city.

Things to do

For most people, Arusha serves as a base for safari trips to the mighty Serengeti National Park. Every year huge herds of wildebeests and zebra cross its plains in search of new pastures.

The crocodile-infested Grumeti River is one of the most dangerous legs and claims the lives of some 250,000 wildebeest every year. In addition to migrating herds, you can also spot lions, rhinos, giraffes and leopards.

Some 100 kilometres to the north-east is mighty Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak. The summit is reserved for serious climbers, but day trips are a great way to get up close and personal with the enormous dormant volcano.

In downtown Arusha, you’ll find a lively street scene. Most of the action is centred along Boma Road, a bustling thoroughfare lined with small hotels and fair-trade souvenir shops. Arusha is also home to some gorgeous garden restaurants serving up authentic African cuisine. With its leafy veranda and grassy lawns, Blue Heron is a top pick.

Getting around

Whether you want to book a day trip to Mount Kilimanjaro or a weeklong safari in Serengeti National Park, Arusha is a great base for organising your adventure. If you’re booking a safari, it’s best to shop around for large 4WDs with open roofs to maximise wildlife viewing. Kilimanjaro International is the busiest airport, with the drive taking around 90 minutes. Arusha Airport is much smaller and is just 20 minutes out of town.
