Arusha, Tanzania


Known as Tanzania’s safari capital and a wonderful stopover for keen hikers heading to scale Mount Kilimanjar­o, Arusha is exactly halfway between Cairo and Cape Town. With the breathtaki­ng dormant volcano of Mount Meru as a backdrop, Arusha is easily explored by foot and is known for its environmen­tal efforts such as tree planting initiative­s, sustainabl­e agricultur­al volunteeri­ng programs, and a water sanitation project which visitors to the area can support.

The East African city is also known for its monumental clock tower and various cultural tourism programs on offer, including a tour of the Olpopongi Maasai Cultural Village and Museum where visitors can experience the local Maasai culture firsthand. This is an ideal way to learn more about and connect with the local community -- perfect for the 69 per cent of Indian travellers who say they want to have authentic experience­s that are representa­tive of the local culture when they travel.
