Welcome to Arusha! The city’s bustling streets, buzzing markets & vibrant nightlife offers visitors a wide selection of boutique-style hotels, culture & endless activities.

Experience While the city is often only a stopover for many as it acts as the gateway to Tanzania’s greatest wildlife destinations, a day or two in the city will treat guests to an inside look at one of the country’s flourishing metropolises.

Kilimanjaro International Airport is only a short 20-minute drive from the domestic Arusha Airport, so visitors can conveniently fly directly from Zanzibar, making the Arusha region an easy add-on to a Zanzibar itinerary.

Activities As one of the oldest towns in Tanzania, this cultural hub with its traditional markets, museums, pulsating nightlife & an array of restaurants, offers its visitors a long list of exciting day trips & activities.

Guests can sample coffee at one of the nearby plantations, shop at a local market or do a day trip to the nearby Arusha National Park to get a ‘safari taste’ before heading off to one of Tanzania’s major wildlife destinations such as the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire National Park or Lake Manyara.

Other day tours & activities include cycling along the river to local villages, swimming in natural hot springs, horse riding, canoeing or playing a round of golf.
