The stunning blue-violet Tanzanite gemstone is only mined in northern Tanzania so a visit to the Tanzanite Experience in Arusha is a must if you want to know more of the history of this rare gemstone or buy certified gems and jewellery.
Activities in Arusha include visiting the nearby Arusha National Park which is perfect for a full or half day safari excursion, as it is Tanzania’s smallest National Park. It vistas and spectacular scenery make it worth the trip. Those with strong legs can arrange to hike up volcanic Mount Meru but this is definitely not for the faint-hearted. Leisurely canoeing options are on offer as are some more challenging hikes.
Surrounded by a forest and an impressive 3.6km wide, the stunning Ngurdoto Crater is now home to a 100m deep swamp – a visit to this exquisite location will complete your overland travel excursion.
