Gap year in Arusha


Around Arusha

Around Arusha There are many souvenirs to be bought in Arusha including carvings and the bright and brash Tinga Tinga paintings.

As the gateway to the Northern Safari Circuit Arusha is the natural place to organize a safari. Within easy reach is Lake Manyara, home to spectacular birdlife and tree-climbing lions, Tarangire a paradise for spotting huge herds of elephants, the Ngorogoro Crater with its spectacular landscape and huge concentration of wildlife and of course the Serengeti Plains.

Tengeru hosts a bustling Saturday market and has a innovative cultural tourism programme where you can learn about growing coffee and then have a go at roasting and grinding your own beans. Lake Duluti is crater lake near Tengeru surrounded by lush forest full of birds and monkeys. A walk around the lake can be combined with a row onto the lake itself.
