Arusha is one of the bigger cities in the north of Tanzania at the base of Mt. Meru, not far from the border with Kenya. It is well known as an African congress centre and the International Tribunal for the Ruandese genocide is located here.

Safari tours to Serengeti, Ngoronogoro, Manyara and Tarangire usually start in Arusha. The city is also an excellent base for visiting the Arusha National Park where you find a wide range of habitats, from the lakes where many water birds can be watched, through the highland montane forest and on up to the imposing summit of Mt. Meru.
