Holiday in Arusha: the perfect base for your Tanzanian safari adventure

Arusha is the perfect embarkation point for your safari tour in northern Tanzania. This vibrant, green city enjoys a temperate climate because of its 1,300m altitude. It is a gateway to the Great Rift Valley amidst the Serengeti Plains, and also very useful for tours to Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Tarangire National Park and the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro.

Holidays in Arusha place you in the shadow of Mount Meru. Although smaller than Dar es Salaam, the city is bustling with tourists and there are some great cooperative craft shops if you’re looking for that perfect souvenir.

Our Arusha accommodation is on the outskirts of the city among lush gardens and coffee plantations. This is the perfect place to relax before taking a light aircraft to start you on your safari adventure.

At A&K we firmly believe in helping the communities in which our tailor-made holidays are based. We can arrange for you to visit Ilboru School for the Deaf and Disabled. This school was funded by donations from our clients and is just one of the ways we give back to the places that offer us so much in return.
