      Arusha Hotels

      Arusha Region Aug 19, 2006 at 10:36 AM

      My safari trip starts and ends in Arusha, and I need a "nice" hotel to stay at for one night. I will be flying in and out through the Kilimanjaro Int'l Airport. Has anyone stayed at the following hotels?

      Arusha Crown Hotel
      Impala Hotel
      The Arusha Hotel
      KIA Lodge
      Safari Hotel

      I am pretty much looking for a clean, somewhat upscale hotel with
      restaurant(s). And lastly, are there available shuttles? If so, do you reserve it before your arrival? Thanks!

      Prices on safaris - plan ahead or book when we are in Arusha?

      Arusha Region May 18, 2006 at 9:49 AM

      Hello everyone!

      My friend and I are doing a trip to Tanzania in September 2006. We will climb Kili, but then would like to do a short safari and a trip to Zanzibar. We were about to book a safari with Tropical Trails or Sunny Safaris (both sound like great companies), but then I read on some posts that people can get much better deals on safaris if they book in Arusha...Right now we are looking at ~$550 per person for a 3 day/2 night safari to Serengeti and Ngorongoro, but I saw prices as low as300 for a 4 day safari because people bargained once in Arusha.

      What is your advice - should we plan ahead and book now or would be it be easy and cheaper to do so once in Arusha?

      Many thanks!

      ATMs in Arusha?

      Arusha Region May 1, 2006 at 6:28 AM

      My wife is going to be based in Arusha for a 2 months and are wondering if there are ATMs there. When we travel we try to make use of ATMs so that we do not have to carry much cash, so if there are ATMs, we can manage with less travelers cheques. If anyone could let us know, we would really appreciate it. Also, what are the associated service charges with ATM withdrawls?
      Many thanks,

      How to reach Arusha from Europe ... CHEAP !

      Arusha Region Jan 31, 2006 at 5:02 AM

      Hallo friends,

      I would like to know if someone has a special "hint" for how to reach Arusha by plane.
      I would start my trip from Vienna Austria (VIE) but am willing to change planes three to four times, if there is a price-advantage if I do so.
      Does anybody know a special way to reach Arusha ?
      (For example, fly to Ethiopia, take a bus and cross the boarder to XXX and take a loacal plane from there to YYY, take a ferry from there to Zanzibar and fly from there to Arusha; ... something like that; ... if it´s less complicate, it´s fine with me too :) )

      Thanx a lot for your help,

      Direct bus from Arusha/Moshi to Mombasa

      Arusha Region Jul 24, 2005 at 1:49 PM


      until now, I haven't been able to find a bus company which has direct connections between Arusha or Moshi and Mombasa. Seems like every international route has to go through either Dar or Nairobi - which would be a huge detour looking at the fairly short distance between Arusha and Mombasa. Does anyone have advice about this? From our Kilimanjaro climb tour operator, we have got the offer to get private transfer for 375 USD (total one-way for five of us) but it seems to me that it shouldn't be necessary to spend that much money.

    • NO Takers on the region forum?

      Arusha Region Apr 23, 2003 at 10:46 AM

      There must be some unmissable gem places within reach of Arusha. For those about to go there, with a day or two to spare, what is nearby that we can go and see? IMO, places are few and far between in Northern Tanzania, but maybe some of you have been there already, and know of brilliant sights or experiences within a few hours of Arusha?
