About Arusha town
Arusha is a bustling town that has been compared to California in the hey-day of the gold rush. There are a lot of things to do, so come join us and we'll show you our city.
We start off with cappuccino and pastry at The Patisserie, we cross the street to Astab Photo to drop off your digital photos to be burned onto a CD or to be printed. We then head towards Uhuru Road, which is our main commercial street. There you will find, among other things, gems and precious stones (such as tanzanite), cafés and interesting little shops. We will then visit Soko Kuu, a big local market where housewives buy their fruit and vegetables, cutlery and household articles and tourists can find all sorts of souvenirs, as long as they're willing to bargain.
Lunch can take place at any number of restaurants, depending on your preferences. Some local restaurants are fun to visit and there's no danger in eating the food there. Jogoo House, for example, serves a big crowd at lunch time and their chicken and French fries are quite good for a very low price.
In the ShopRite shopping center, you will find several high-end boutiques. It's a great place to find that special gift to bring back home or simply to browse among handmade toys, beautiful fabrics and unique furniture made from driftwood. After all this shopping, we need a break, so we stop for delicious ice cream at a lovely café in the shopping center.
Across the street from ShopRite is another local market called Kilombero. It's very different from Soko Kuu but also a lot of fun to visit. Go ahead and take photos. No one will mind.
There's also the Cultural Heritage Center, the Museum and all sorts of other things to visit in this dynamic city. Don't hesitate to tell us your preferences and we'll come up with a day that will suit your tastes and budget.
We also organize unforgettable African safari to Tanzania National parks and Zanzibar beach holidays as well as Kilimanjaro Climbing
