Arusha - Travel and Tourism
With a perfect climate year-round, friendly locals, easy access to its stunning natural surroundings, and a vibrant, diverse nightlife.
A good alternative to Mount Kilimanjaro, Meru, the second-highest mountain in Tanzania, can be climbed by climbers with very little experience.
Although Arusha itself can be visited year round, the best time is from June to October, during the dry Tanzanian winter.
It is possible to obtain a visa upon arriving in Tanzania, but we highly recommend that you arrange that before you travel.
There is no better way to experience the diversity and richness of Africa’s people, cultures, and landscapes than through video.
Because of Arusha’s proximity to tourist magnets such as Kilimanjaro, touts and tourist scams are common.
Although some Swahili will be useful outside of Arusha, within the city you can get by very well in English.
