30 THING TO DO IN ARUSHA-TANZANIA 1 DAY TRIP US$150 PP @4 TRIPS BY Kim'zebra Adventures & Safaris

Posted by in Tanzania 2019-05-13 12:25:44

There are several ways to get to Arusha. The easiest is to get a direct flight to Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA), which is situated about 46km/29mi from Arusha. Alternatively, you can fly to Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR), near Dar es Salaam and get a connecting domestic flight to Arusha Airport (ARK) or Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA).

Arusha is served by two airports. Kilimanjaro International Airport (IATA: JRO) has regular flights to Amsterdam with KLM, and to Addis Ababa, Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar and Nairobi. Kilimanjaro Airport is approximately 60km (45min) from the city Centre. A taxi ride costs USD50 but many airlines run a shuttle service for free or USD10.

Arusha is a moderately safe city by African standards, though precautions should be observed. It is not advisable to walk at night, alone or in groups – cabs are plentiful but fares should always be agreed upon at the start of a journey (cabs have no meters, making it all too easy to exaggerate fares at the end of a journey). Avoid taking motorcycle taxis, especially at night in front of clubs. Thieves easily use this opportunity to rob people. In the city centre (on Sokoine road) and in certain areas (along old Moshi road) there are frequent attacks on tourists, especially when they are walking with their backpacks/bags. Make sure that you take a cab when you are arriving/leaving from Arusha (as gangs usually know when and where backpackers arrive) and avoid taking a bag when walking in town. Foreigners are virtually guaranteed to be approached by touts. This can be intimidating, especially when they latch onto and follow you, but they are usually harmless. In this case do not stop, slow down or make eye contact; simply say “hapana asante” (no thank you) if they ask or offer you anything. You will save yourself a lot of bother if you do not engage them. When walking in any part of the city beyond the central district, it is advisable to take a guide. The bridge on Old Moshi Rd is a particularly notorious mugging spot, and although often patrolled by police it should be avoided if on foot. If you sit alone in the park nearby the bridge, police will usually approach you within a few minutes and insist that you leave.

Arusha can be reached by express coach from Nairobi (Kenya, 6h, daily 08.00 and 14.00 from in front of Parkside Hotel, USD35), Dar es Salaam (12h), and Kampala (Uganda, 17h) with direct services also available from Mwanza, Tanga, and Lushoto. Some companies offer first-class tickets which are slightly more comfortable although it is worth noting that standards are generally comparable with most African bus services. Moshi can be reached in about one hour. There are various shuttle buses between Arusha and Moshi which are more comfortable than coaches. Some of these shuttles can be booked in advance

What to Do in Arusha For a Day

22. Mount Meru in Arusha National Park

1-4 Day Trip US$450-900 Per Person
Tanzania’s second highest mountain is much more
than just a “warm up” trek for Kilimanjaro.
Mount Meru is an active (but dormant) volcano located north of Arusha in Tanzania. At 4562 metres it is Tanzania’s second highest mountain and the fourth highest mountain in Africa. The mountain became well known mainly because it is only 70 km from Mount Kilimanjaro:
Mt. Meru has become a popular “warm up” trek for Kilimanjaro climbers.

Mount Meru
Mt. Meru is indeed the perfect preparation for a Kilimanjaro climb. It offers you a taste of what you can expect on Kili:

You trek in a group with porters, cook and guides,
you climb through different vegetation zones over several days,
you start your summit attempt around midnight and reach the peak around sunrise,
and you then descend an awesome 2000 metres on the same day, very similar to your Kilimanjaro summit day.

Most importantly, at a height of 4562 metres (14967 feet) Mt. Meru requires your body to make changes to adapt to the altitude. It’s called acclimatisation and as a result you will be much better prepared for you Kilimanjaro climb. That altitude acclimatisation is the main reason why people climb Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro together. I think it is a shame that so many people who visit Tanzania and Kilimanjaro view Meru only as a warm up trek for Kilimanjaro.
Mount Meru is a very rewarding trek in its own right.
And it is also a challenging climb. Do not underestimate it!

The height is certainly enough to bring on altitude sickness if you ascend too fast. And bad weather can make the trek along the knife edge ridge of the crater rim a positively dangerous undertaking.

23. Visit Maserani Snake Park
It’s very fantastic to have tour on that place. There is a lot of things to learn about. dont miss that opportunity.

24. Go for Canoeing on Lake Duluti
CANOEING AT LAKE DULUTI. The only place you can do canoeing in Arusha is lake Duluti. Its real nice experience, any one can be lead and do it oneself, very easy. It was my first day and I did it from the beginning to the end. You are welcome. Book your tour via
