Arusha is Tanzania’s third largest city. Lying in the shadow of Mount Meru, Tanzania’s second highest mountain, Arusha is situated at an elevation 1,400 meters and has a pleasant year-round climate. Arusha is known as Tanzania’s safari capital and much of the life in the city revolves around tourism. There are excellent Souvenir shops while many upscale restaurants and hotels have opened in the last few years. During a walk through Arusha, expect to meet vendors selling anything from art, Safaris and last week’s newspaper. Arusha is home to the East African Community as well as United Nations Rwandan War Crimes Tribunal and other economic activities in the area include agriculture and mining.
