Short Overview

Take a tour around Arusha, a bustling agricultural town, a tourist centre and a main headquarter for east African safaris.

Stroll around the local market, visit a school and church, have a Kilimanjaro beer in a local pub and observe the busy streets.

Overseen with Mount Meru, nestling the Arusha national park on its slopes, it lies in the middle of the African continent. Perhaps a box to check?
