Arusha is the gateway to Tanzania's northern wildlife area and is generally the first port of call for visitors. It is a charming little town nestled beneath the towering peaks of Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro. The town, which is known as Tanzania's safari capital, boasts a plethora of first-class restaurants, bars, and markets and is the ideal spot to unwind before embarking on a safari or attempting to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
Arusha National Park, a gorgeous tiny reserve near town, is the ideal introduction to the world of safari, however it lacks the diversity of animals found in the country's top environmental reserves. The many lovely coffee plantations that surround Arusha add to the town's rural beauty, with many of them going back to colonial times and allowing tours of stately plantation buildings.
Sprawled along the slopes of scenic Mount Meru, Arusha National Park boasts strong populations of antelope, along with buffalo, giraffe and over 400 kinds of birds. Easily accessible, it is the excellent spot to begin or conclude your trip.The Momella Lakes, whose alkaline water supports year-round flamingo populations and which are best explored on a picturesque canoe excursion, are the park's most well-known feature.
