Arusha

Arusha is the safari capital of Tanzania; the gateway to the Serengeti, Mount Kilimanjaro, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, and the Ngorongoro Crater. The bustling city is where your northern Tanzanian safari begins and ends, and it is scenically located on the volcanic landscape of the Great Rift Valley with Mount Meru towering at its back. Arusha has the characteristic chaos of an African city, and there are always tourists wandering the city streets enjoying the local cuisine and culture and exploring the arts and crafts for sale. In between safari destinations, it is well worth spending a day or two absorbing the energy of this dusty town, and drinking a locally brewed cup of coffee.

A charming combination of modern day African markets and old colonial buildings give Arusha its nostalgic appeal. The 1950s clock tower stands in the centre of town, and an old German-built fort is now a museum of natural history which offers interesting insight into the colonial era as well as the history of wildlife in Tanzania’s national parks. Visit the cultural heritage centre, or enjoy The Tanzanite Experience, which offers all the information you’ll need on these local blue gemstones. Coffee is grown, picked, and brewed in Arusha and there are many cafes in which to sit and sip. Local grub is served all over town, and there are plenty of bars ideal for socialising with tourists and locals alike.

Legendary Lodge

Legendary Lodge

Arusha is a busy, dusty, vibrant sub-Saharan African city, and it is where all your northern Tanzanian safaris begin and end. There is a lot to enjoy in this city, full of charmingly mingled traditional African and old colonial details, but it is all the more enjoyable when your city home base is the botanical garden oasis on a working coffee farm on the outskirts of Arusha: Legendary Lodge. This garden cottage, old farmhouse-style luxury property is ideal for rejuvenating between flights and safaris.
