Arusha town is a lively, diverse and active community in Tanzania famous for its Maasai people that inhabit it and its close proximity to the Arusha-Nairobi Road; that is a street for the great migration. This gives people a quick view of the wildebeests as they migrate. You will spend the day wandering on the streets of the city and exploring the halls of the National Natural History Museum before heading east to Tengeru, a bustling market town that’s thick with trade.
Explore through the stalls of local sellers and bear witness as locals purchase everything from goods for the day’s meal to brightly colored traditional fabrics, and even electronics. Round out the evening at one of the city’s popular night clubs, like Masai Camp, Greek Club or Via Via, where hip-hop anthems reign supreme.
Despite its urban status, Arusha is home to a large population of Maasai—one of Tanzania’s oldest semi-nomadic tribes. Spend a day visiting a traditional boma, where these pastoral people practice their traditional way of life. Wander through the mud huts and explore the fields where young boys keep watch over goats, donkeys, cows and sheep. Share a pot of steaming hot food with the women of this tribe, whose brightly colored red robes are easy to spot amid the backdrop of the Tanzanian savannahs. Learn more about their healers, educational system and patriarchal practices, then purchase some of the tribe’s distinctive handmade jewelry as a reminder of this once in a lifetime experience.
Take the two-hour overland journey from Arusha to the Ngorongogo Crater, where a sunken plain spans some 260 square kilometers and is home to more than 25,000 animals. Venture into the wild and get up close to black rhinos, thousands of wildebeestsa, zebra and gazelles, and see what’s been named the densest population of lions in the world. Travelers who visit the crater between December and June will likely catch part of the legendary great migration, where more than a million wildebeests, zebra and other game make the trip to Maasai Mara in search of water and fertile grazing.
