The ultimate guide to your next Arusha Safari

Get to Know Arusha

Stay over on your way to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro or Lake Manyara

The town of Arusha is the little safari industry hub of Tanzania, where all major logistics, supply and support offices are located. The local airport connects Arusha with local scheduled and charter flights across the country to all other major airports, national parks, and game reserves. Tanzanian National Parks and the Ngorongoro Conservation Authority (NCA) headquarters are in Arusha, but the ministry of tourism and wildlife’s offices are in Dar es Salaam.

From Arusha, it’s easy to go on a half-day or full-day excursion onto Arusha National Park if you have time. At Mount Meru, you can see all the normal plains game and key mammal species before you visit the Serengeti and Tarangire. It’s also a place to see elephant, buffalo, giraffe and the area’s primates – olive baboon, vervet monkeys, Sykes’s monkey, and black-and-white colobus monkeys.

FAQs about Arusha

  • The best time to visit Arusha National Park is from June to October, during the dry season. It is easier to spot the wildlife - since they normally gather around the waterholes, rainfall is minimal, vegetation is not too thick and mosquitos levels are reduced.
  • However, when you’re visiting make sure you carry warm clothes for the morning game drives, since the early mornings of June all through August are cold.
  • From November to December and March through May - the rains transform the landscape as lush, green grasses emerge and this is also the best time to witness the migratory birds.
