More info about Arusha
Located in the northern highlands of Tanzania, beneath the twin peaks of Mt. Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro, Arusha is the safari capital of the country.
This city is located on a plateau in the Great Rift Valley not far from the border with Kenya amidst the Serengeti Plain, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Olduvai Gorge, Tarangire National Park, and Mount Kilimanjaro National Park.
Guests embarking on the popular northern safari circuit all stop in the ‘Geneva of Africa’ to refresh and prepare for their journeys into the African bush. From the two-lane streets of Arusha, the dramatic crater of Mt. Meru towers over the town like a majestic sentinel, it is a crater strewn with thick clouds and its slopes dark with verdant forest.
Arusha is ideally located near the major national parks and its highland setting makes it a peaceful idyll of relaxation before the start of an exciting journey.
