Once arrived, you can finally rest after your long flight and start taking it all in. If there’s enough time, you can spend some time in the center of Arusha, or simply relax at your hotel. If you arrive early, we can even arrange an activity for you during the day (to be booked in advance). We’re more than happy to help you with information about places to go, where to eat and other practical arrangements.
