Area Information

Arusha is a lush town at an altitude of 1 380 metres above sea level. With Mount Meru as a backdrop, it’s an attractive town, with a busy bustle about it. As the launch pad for all the great Tanzania safaris in the north of Tanzania.

While in Arusha, don't miss the Clock Tower donated by a Greek who lived there in 1945. The German Boma houses the National Natural History Museum containing the famous Laetoli Footprints set in volcanic ash and dating back 3 500 000 years.

The Arusha Declaration National Museum is dedicated to the landmark Tanzanian Uhuru Freedom Movement of the 60s, and affords a fascinating perspective into this crucial period of Tanzania's history.

Arusha National Park
The closest national park to Arusha town – northern Tanzania’s safari capital – Arusha National Park is a multi-faceted jewel, often overlooked by safarigoers, despite offering the opportunity to explore a beguiling diversity of habitats within a few hours.

The entrance gate leads into shadowy montane forest inhabited by inquisitive blue monkeys and colourful turacos and trogons – the only place on the northern safari circuit where the acrobatic black-and-white colobus monkey is easily seen. In the midst of the forest stands the spectacular Ngurdoto Crater, whose steep, rocky cliffs enclose a wide marshy floor dotted with herds of buffalo and warthog.
