Just a happy guy who loves travelling, loves Africa and feels that travelling changes you forever.

Nairobi to Arusha

We leave the lively capital of Kenya today and make our way into Tanzania. We make a stop-off in Arusha to pay a visit to the local Masai Museum and the well-known snake park. In the afternoon we prepare for our impending optional expedition into the famous Serengeti National Park and the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater.

Enclosed by some of Africa’s most well-known landscapes and National Parks, Arusha is located at the base of Mount Meru – on the eastern edge of the Great Rift Valley’s eastern branch. The city experiences mostly balmy weather due to its location on the hills of Mt Meru. Within close proximity to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Olduvai Gorge, Tarangire National Park and Mount Kilimanjaro, Arusha contains its very own National Park, situated on Mount Meru. The main industry of this area is agriculture. Producers of huge vegetables and flowers send superb produce to Europe. Small-scale farming was negatively impacted by the somewhat recent ‘coffee crisis’ and has therefore transformed into mostly subsistence farming. Arusha has several factories including a brewery, tyre and fibreboard plant as well as a big pharmaceuticals manufacturer.
