Arusha & Kilimanjaro

Arusha & Kilimanjaro

A quaint town on the Southern slopes of Mount Meru in the lush coffee growing highlands of Northern Tanzania, Arusha is known as the safari hub of Tanzania Northern safari circuit. The famous Northern Circuit includes the Serengeti National Park, Kilimanjaro National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Arusha National Park, Lake Manyara National Park and Tarangire National Park.

Discover the ‘bean-to-cup’ process on a Coffee Tour Estate where you roast, grind and taste your own coffee or experience the sights, sounds and smells of the local Tengeru Market. Arusha is the centre of the Tanzanite trade; a highly sought-after purple-blue gem found only in Northern Tanzania.

The world’s highest free-standing mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro stands at 5,895 metres above sea level within the Kilimanjaro National Park. A world famous climb, the ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro offers climates and landscape ranging from the tropics to the Arctic – lush montane forest frequented by elephant, leopard and Cape buffalo gives way to moorland and heathlands followed by highland barrens and finally the snow and glaciers of the ice capped Kibo peak.

There are seven official trekking routes to conquer Africa’s tallest peak, of which we recommend the Machame Route – the steepest however most scenic route.
