Nestled in the verdant foothills of Mount Meru, Arusha remains the primary gateway and jump-off point for safaris into several national parks.
Visiting Kayaking & Canoeing and Serengeti Heritage will get you outdoors. Let the collections at Tanzanite Experience and Cultural Heritage Centre capture your imagination. Change things up with a short trip to Safaris in Arusha National Park (about 2 hours away). There's lots more to do: head outdoors with Kili Dreamers, stop by Book Point, and admire the sheer force of Engare sero waterfall.

For reviews, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Arusha travel route builder site .

Dar es Salaam to Arusha is an approximately 2-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also fly; or drive. Traveling from Dar es Salaam in December, things will get little chillier in Arusha: highs are around 31°C and lows about 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
