Wild, authentic, thrilling, stunning and addictive are just a few superlatives to associate with Tanzania but, words do not really do any justice to this incredible jewel of Africa. You will have no doubt heard of the great wildebeest migration. As phenomenal as this is to witness first-hand (definitely worth adding to the bucket list!), it is worth bearing in mind that this incredible country has so many more highlights to offer, suiting both first time and seasoned safari aficionados.

  • Each of these incredible places have very different and fascinating topography and flora as well as some incredible densities of wildlife including lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino.
  • Bird lovers will also delight in Tanzania with every season offering spectacular sightings.

Arusha city, Tanzania is the country’s safari capital located in the north of the country. It has a population of 427,185 plus 323,198 in the surrounding Arusha District ( 2012 census). This city is located on a plateau in the Great Rift Valley amidst the Serengeti plains, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Tarangire National Park, and Mount Kilimanjaro.

Arusha is a small town nestled in the shadow of Mount Meru with commanding views of the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro. Although Dar es Salaam is larger, Arusha tends to be visited more by tourists as it is the gateway to the northern safari circuit to Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara, Tarangire, and Arusha National Park. The closest park to this City is Arusha National park. It is likely to be the start of your adventure to the famous parks of northern Tanzania.
