Situated in the fertile southern foothills of Mount Meru lies the bustling town of Arusha. Known as the "safari capital" of Tanzania, Arusha is the most popular and convenient place from which to explore the legendary northern game viewing parks and conservation areas as well as the world famous Mount Kilimanjaro. For our guests arriving after long international flights, we recommend an overnight in Arusha prior to heading off on safari. Accommodation options in Arusha range from rustic hostels to luxurious plantation lodges.
