Korogwe – Arusha, Tanzania
We pass Africa’s tallest mountain today, Mount Kilimanjaro, and make our way toward Arusha, situated at the base of Africa’s fifth tallest mountain, Mount Meru. Also referred to as the ‘safari capital’ of Tanzania, Arusha is most certainly the most significant centre in northern Tanzania. With plenty of protected national reserves and mountains, Arusha is a picturesque contemporary town. Boasting an array of markets, services and a fantastic location, this is the finest base for our next expedition.
The main industry of Arusha is agriculture, with massive vegetable producers exporting high-quality produce to Europe. The city is peppered with coffee plantations, which only serves to add to the region’s charm.
Prepare a day pack for the 3-day excursion to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Pack something warm for the evenings and plenty of insect repellent.
