Arusha Tour Selection Trips

  • Arusha is filled with local safari or mountain climbing tour operators who may or may not be reliable. To assure yourself the highest quality experience and maintain your peace of mind, it’s best to book in advance online with an outfitter who has a proven track record.
  • To find reliable outfitters online and get the dates and quality you want, be sure to check their Stride profile before booking.
  • It’s always a good idea to schedule a day or two in Arusha before your safari or climbing expedition to adjust to time changes, get gear together (of applicable), and rest after a long flight.
  • December to February is probably the best time to climb Mt. Meru, when the views of Kilimanjaro are clearest and the fall rains have passed.
  • A big advantage to booking your safari ahead is that your outfitter or guide will probably meet you at Kilimanjaro International Airport (about 40 miles from town) and take you to your pre-booked hotel, a welcome perk after a long flight.
