Today we embark on a picturesque drive to Arusha where we will spend the night. 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 Mount 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. Arusha has several factories including a brewery, tyre and fibreboard plant as well as a big pharmaceuticals manufacturer. For those who have purchased the optional Serengeti Excursion upgrade will be briefed on what to expect for the upcoming days.
