Arusha is an attractive and unpretentious town located in northern Tanzania that is largely used as a stopover en-route to the Northern Safari Circuit. It is within driving distance of Mount Kilimanjaro, Lake Manyara, Tarangire National Park and of course, the Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti Plains. It is hard to think of another place in the world that is so close to so many amazing national parks and reserves.
Most travellers usually spend at least a night in Arusha during their East African adventure. And while the town really functions as a transit point, it is pleasant enough in its own right. The streets are lively and bustling and it is one of the few places (after Dar es Salaam) where you can stock up on luxuries and necessities. The people are friendly, the views of Mount Meru are stunning and you can venture into Arusha National Park with its alkaline lakes and montane forest.
